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 that really worked.
The dial and case design are based on the original 1919 model but have been updated, in a subtle but noticeable way, to meet today's aesthetic standards.
The "Red 12" was a signature color by Waltham for the 12 numeral.
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.
We made the Field & Marine like Waltham would have made it today .We respected the 1918 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.
The production of the new Waltham Field & Marine has been funded by Angels in February 2021.
