Built For Adventure
Designed in the spirit of vintage military timepieces, the Model C field watch features a high level of water resistance, bold legibility, hacking seconds, and bright luminescence. All consistent with its true predecessors in the field.
Taking advantage of modern manufacturing technology and designing outside the parameters of a government contract we've built the Model C in a larger format, within the confines of our well-known case design, and employed a stronger power reserve.
The final product is a reminder of our brand's DNA. Designing around the utilitarian lines of blocky battle tanks from the 1940’s, from it's sturdy, pronounced bezel, into a well-proportioned 40mm "hull" for a sweet spot of balance and presence.
Rounding out the piece is its bold finishing like modern cafe racer style motorbikes.
The Movement // Sellita SW200-1
Powering our Field Explorer is a practical combination of quality, dependable accuracy, and value. All three highly important characteristics as we have developed a machine to endure years of adventure and travels while getting you where you are going on time.
This watch is not for shelf time but regular wear. The Swiss Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement is a brilliant choice offering one of the best cost to value ratio's available to a microbrand such as us. We hope you'll be as pleased with it as we are.
