During the Second World War, a growing need for military timekeepers for all kinds of different applications evolved. Thus, for example, belonged to every radio station, whether portable or stationary, a so-called radio-station's clock. Quick readability due to large digits on a clean dial were the key features of these timepieces. It is this simple but highly functional design that inspired us to our Military-series, which has now found a new, assertive comrade in the Military 47. The 47 in the name stands for the case's diameter of 47mm, a very wearable size, which gives this watch a striking presence on the wrist. The classic snake hands harmonize very well with the large numbers that are only interrupted at 9 clock by the subsidiary dial for the small seconds. The domed sapphire crystal with two anti-reflective coatings on the inside allows a clear view of these components of timekeeping, that even without light remain visible, thanks to the generous use of Swiss luminous paint. Turning the fully polished stainless steel case of the Military 47 around, will reveal yet another crystal. It lets one have a good view of the richly decorated ETA Unitas 6497 manual winding caliber, an extremely robust movement that fulfilled its duties in pocket watches already decades ago. A classic mechanical Swiss movement. And so the new Military 47 may have what it takes to become a classic as well, a must-have for any watch collection.
