From an unwavering use of the phrase “zero hundred hours” to generally running like clockwork, military excellence and timekeeping have long gone (minute) hand in (hour) hand.
And though this smoothly stunning Matthew Humphries 02 Seiko watch might run on a 12hr set up, it’s a precise and bold take on the classic military watch as we know it.
Formally an automotive designer, the last few years have seen Humphries move from horns to horology, crafting some exceptional pieces of wrist-fodder, with this number set to be his finest effort yet.
Combining Sieko movement with a rugged Hardlex mineral crystal dial and tanned cowhide-leather strap, extra military panache is added thanks to a metallic box it comes in once you’ve parted with £265. A reassuring price tag.
Crafted by a true pro and taking inspiration from the practicalities of army life, we can’t imagine this watch having a major malfunction anytime soon.
