Our factory direct promise
The design DNA of the Field & Marine is found in its oversized (but comfortable to wear) bayonet crown and crown protection area. This area distinguishes the Field & Marine from any other watch.
Historically the combination of the bayonet crown coupled with the screwed bezel and case back assured the water-resistance making it the first waterproof watch.
The dial and case design are inspired from the original 1919 model but updated in a sublte but noticeable way to today's aesthetic standards.
The most scientific
The case design of the Waltham Field & Marine was the most scientific of its epoch. We developed the contemporary version based on the original case and bayonet crown patents.
Removable golden disk
The gold and the watch can be separated.
The 14K solid gold case-back disk is held by a bezel
that can be unscrewed with the "chuck key" to extract the disk.
The watch and its water-resistance are not affected
by removing the disk.
The Field & Marine Thermo had a distinctive yellow crystal. The purpose of coloring the crystal was to dim the strong luminosity of the radium painted numerals which at night could give away the position of the soldier, making him a target for snipers.
A life-saving feature.
Made like Waltham would have made it today
The original patent
The bayonet crown of the Field & Marine has been developed on the basis of the original patent granted on January 28th in 1919. In total four patents for screw down crowns have been filed between 1917 and 1919 by the Depollier-Waltham team.
The first waterproof
Since 1919. The watch which defined a nation and watchmaking history.
We made the Field & Marine Thermo like Waltham would have made it today .We respected the 1919 design DNA and applied the technology and aesthetic codes of today. The crown-caseback-bezel tripych now guarantees a water resistance of 1000ft-300m giving a new meaning to the word “Marine” in "Field & Marine". A trench watch for today with professional diving capability.
An official collaboration with a mission. Waltham belongs back to America. There is its legacy and from there it made watchmaking history. The mid-long term goal of this official collaboration between the Waltham Watch Company and Watch Angels is to bring back Waltham’s production to the US with the help of the watch enthusiasts community.
