[Watch Home Watch Recommendation] Although a week has passed since the August Day Army Day, the movies “Wolf Warrior 2” and “Army Building” released on July 27 are still hot and received rave reviews. Especially Wu Jing’s self-directed and self-starred “Wolf Warrior 2”, many people have said that they have not seen such a hot-blooded military blockbuster that belongs to us Chinese ourselves on the big screen for a long time, and the character “Leng Feng” in the play also makes us feel the iron bones and iron gentleness of Chinese soldiers, which makes people’s blood boil. In the film, everyone should also notice that Wu Jing wears a military watch, but I really can’t see what watch it is in a few flashing shots in the play. In order to cater to the “military fever” brought to us by Wolf Warrior during this time and the taste of military watch fans, today’s Watch House has also specially selected several military watches for everyone to choose.
Breguet TYPE XX – XXI – XXII series 3817ST/X2/3ZU watches
Domestic price: RMB 109200
Watch diameter: 42 mm
Watch thickness: 15.2 mm

This is really a very tasteful military watch, and the combination of a vintage-style dial and calfskin strap, as well as the use of light brown and turquoise tones, all make this watch very stylish. The 42mm stainless-steel case is surrounded by Breguet’s signature coin pattern and features a two-way rotating bezel for a variety of chronograph operations. The Arabic numerals on the rocky dial are covered with light brown luminescent material, giving it an old bronze color that is beautiful and practical. At 3 o’clock there is a 24-hour dial, at 6 o’clock there is a 12-hour timer and date window, and at 9 o’clock there is a small seconds hand. The biggest breakthrough of Breguet’s pilot’s watch is the back-transparent movement, the first back-transparent watch in the series, which was previously a metal case back. Cal.584Q/2 is an upgraded version of the Type XXI 3810 584Q, with the main improvements being the replacement of silicon hairsprings and silicon escapements. It uses a screw balance wheel with adjustable inertia, a frequency of 28800vph, and a power reserve of 48 hours.

In 1953, Blancpain launched the Fifty Fathoms diver’s watch designed for the French Navy’s Frogman Force, and the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms collection was born. The Igaris is an outstanding performance with water resistance up to 300 meters, Cal.1315 calibre with 28,800 oscillations per hour and a power reserve of 120 hours. The markers on the arched unidirectional rotating bezel, as well as the dial scales and hour markers, feature luminescence for precise timekeeping when diving. As one of the masterpieces of diving of the previous generation, this watch is a very sophisticated military watch in terms of appearance and function.

The Dafei series of all countries must be familiar to everyone, and this professional pilot’s watch, which combines the traditional and innovative elements of IWC, is another masterpiece of the large watch of all countries. The 48mm ceramic hybrid titanium case features new materials and design elements, with a charcoal grey dial, beige hands, minute ring and green fabric strap inspired by the classic colours and materials of military instruments. The minute bezel and small hour bezel of the separate unit are reminiscent of precision watches of the 1930s and 1940s. The sturdy, wear-resistant and scratch-resistant 48 mm zirconia ceramic case makes it water-resistant to 60 meters, and the self-winding calibre 51111 is one of the largest automatic movements in the world, with the Pelletton automatic winding system, Breguet hairspring, and its pawl winding system can give the watch a power reserve of 8.5 days in a short time. If you are an avid military watch fan, then this “big fly” is worth buying.
The emergence of military watches was originally to meet military needs, and often accompanied by soldiers fighting in the sky or galloping on the battlefield, all flowing with the blood of soldiers. And now, the era of war has passed, military equipment is more sophisticated, and the meaning of military watches has changed accordingly. In the hearts of many enthusiastic men with military complexes, wearing a military watch seems to allow them to experience the gunsmoke battlefield of that era, and they can show their tough military temperament from their wrists.
