Americana Chapter III “INFANTRY”
New to the ‘AMERICANA’ COLLECTION………The “Infantry” is a very special timepiece which is a recreation of a field watch used by the US Infantry in the Second World War. A slight improvisation for modernity is added keeping the aesthetics of the original military watch.
The rugged 43 mm round case has an unusual crown position at 2 o’clock, and is crafted from surgical grade steel and finished in a non reflective sand blasted finish.
The Dial is a two-tone Grey complimenting the sand blasted finish of the case. The inner circle is a 24 hour timekeeper with printed Arabic numerals. The outer circle features steel cut Arabic hour markers in a brushed finish. The outer peripheral dial ring is made of genuine bronze for tracking minute and seconds with stick and Arabic markings on 5 minute intervals, from 05 to 60.
The elliptically placed two inner dials are for Day of the week and Date. The classic and simple, hour and minute handset is nicely proportioned and have been covered with luminous material to give the watch a vintage vibe and to aid low light visibility. The slender stick style seconds hand is simple and in sync with the retro styling..
It has been tested for water resistance of up to 5 ATM and is guaranteed against manufacturing defects for 2 years.
