Military inspired wristwatches have been popular for generations. In many cases, a watchmaker’s popularity has been deeply influenced by their production of specific watches for a country’s military unit.
Rotary watches rose to fame in England during World War II, becoming the official watch supplier of the entire British army. The brand was consequentially worn in just about every British household during the war and became immensely popular throughout the nation after the war. Rotary’s popularity in England was so immense, that it moved its corporate headquarters to Great Britain after the war.
During the early 1960’s, the United States government used the highly accurate Bulova Accutron 214 automatic timepiece in military satellites and purposely delayed the commercial release of the timepiece to prevent the Soviet Union from utilizing this technology during the Cold War.
In the 1990’s Luminox watches developed illuminated watches for the US Navy Seals to be worn during night missions and later worked with Lockheed Martin to produce illuminated watches for US Air Force Pilots flying the F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighter jets.
The illuminated Luminox timepieces met with immediate approval, which lead to to their commercial release and widespread popularity throughout the world.
