The Bell and Ross Military Watch is the soldier your want in your foxhole—well, on your wrist anyway. He’s of the old school, prefers olive drab to digitized camouflage and tells just one time, albeit with photo-luminescent hands. While the 03-92 is decidedly clearly World War II in style, its super high-quality components are up to the rigors of modern life. The case is matte ceramic, the scratch-resistant sapphire glass has an anti-glare coating, and the straps are rubber and heavy-duty nylon—if you break them, you’re probably also bright green and two stories tall. And though the watch is dressed like a Jeep, it’s actually an aviator’s tool, with a square, riveted surround strong enough to withstand the literal pressures of flight. Traditional, solid, and impervious to dings and scrapes: draft the Bell and Ross Military Ceramic into your platoon. [$4,500; bellross.com]
