Back in the day, field watches were built for the battlefield. The watchmaking industry has since moved towards a more sophisticated realm, but has kept the key design attributes of early military field watches. These classic wristwatches have a solidified sturdiness and robustness made to last in trench warfare, and as we all know – durability is key when it comes to investing in a great timepiece.

Rolex Explorer 5504 Men’s Watch

Rebranded from the Oyster with numerical dials, the Rolex Explorer was introduced in 1953 to celebrate the first man to reach the summit of Mt. Everest.

This Rolex Explorer 5504 Men’s Watch, manufactured in 1963, has a simple black dial and a rugged leather strap, is the ultimate expression of the watchmaker’s skill and expertise in the industry.
