Officer Watch with Persian Brigade cloth strap



Wristwatches first made their appearance in the British Army during the First World War; before that pocket watches were exclusively used in the military. Pocket watches were not practical in the trenches, and some early versions simply attached a wrist strap to a pocket watch. By the end of the Great War, wristwatches very similar to this one were standard issue, made by companies such as Borger, Smiths and Mappin & Webb. This is the black version of our Officer Watch, with its large matt stainless steel ribbed case and large numbers giving this watch a style with its feet firmly rooted in military history, with a strap in the colours of the Persian Brigade.
