Today in the United States, of course, it’s a day known as Memorial Day. While military watches come and go (and we’ve reviewed quite a few here in the past), I’m still of a mind to focus in on a particular type of watch that spent a lot of time on the battlefield in the days gone by, as we do on this particular holiday.
That watch is, of course, the trench watch. While you won’t find them being carried in our military today, they were definitely in heavy use in the past. For more on this topic (as well as some new ones being made today), check out our post from a few years ago, and then check out new interpretations from MWW , WT Author, and McDowell Time.
While the styling is certainly unique, and not for everyone these days, they certainly do have an interesting appeal – especially if you’ve had one handed down to you from your dad or grandfather. Once you’re done with your reading, get out and enjoy the day – and be thankful for our freedoms that so many have sacrificed for.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
