MWC Classic 1960s/70s Pattern Olive Vietnam Watch on Matching Webbing Strap
SKU Code: NAM/OL/MET
Our Vietnam Watches are virtually identical in appearance to the watches used by American troops in the Vietnam war during the 1960s and 1970s and we produce two variants in both covert black and the original olive drab.
The actual US Military Issue models were made of plastic because they were deemed disposable, of course, the problem with making our own Vietnam watches in plastic is they would be in effect be very basic just like the originals with all the same durability issues hence we decided to completely rethink the watch and whilst keeping the original appearance, weight and feel we switched to all-metal construction which means that although the watch looks very close to the originals (see the last image which shows an original watch and spec sheet) it is vastly superior in both durability and general quality.
