Rolex Military watches are a rare and stunning find. Created at the beginning of World War I, these timepieces were given out to the high ranking British military officers. Rolex designed these watches with durability and longevity in mind. Over the course of the war, not many of these watches survived and even less are in excellent condition.

These rare timepieces are about as difficult to find as an all-black Rolex Submariner which were issued to the British officers stationed in Africa. What makes this particular Rolex so fascinating and rare is its hybrid look. The watch bares characteristics unique to sports watches as well as casual / dress Rolex watches. Its 15 jewel movements is housed in a case that resembles a casual watch more than a professional line, yet the dial of the watch has oversized Arabic numerals and large luminescent hands for better legibility in the dark and in adverse conditions.

All in all this is a stylish, functional watch created to survive trench warfare as well as a party will ensure that your rare watch collection is like no other. One of the rarest attributes of this military watch line is its case. It is uncommon to see these military watches in silver screw back cases, so if you have the opportunity to purchase one, we would recommend you don’t hesitate.

Traditionally, these watches would be presented on a military strap, but as the time went on, these simple straps were replaced with leather bands. Regardless of the bracelet choice, this watch is one of the rare, incredible finds that is worth every penny. Due to their limited availability, these watches are not cheap, but they also retain their value quite well.
