    Here's my Swiss Army infantry that I've worn to work for about 10 years. It's held up to a pretty good beating.

    Hi Huey,

    not sure if by 'military' you mean 'Swiss army' watches or military issue watches, there's not many military issue watches for under $250 unless some type of G-Shock or a used British CWC.

    cheers, John

    Navy Combat Camera used to issue us a ProTrek. That was in 2010 though.

    Now this is a real military watch. British Military surplus, used, CWC G-10. Probably my favourite watch.

    That is what I was asking,

    the CWC G10 watch is a military watch, the Swiss Army watch is not a military watch "Swiss Army" is a brand name. The British CWC G10 is one of the very few true military issue watches that can be found for under $250, in fact many can be found for under $150.

    cheers, John

    I got mine a few years back for less than £50 ($50) on UK eBay. The back has an easy open battery compartment and is stamped with serial number and issue date (mine is 06). I understand that some collectors target certain years to coincide with various military actions. In addition I think there are some G-10s that can be attributed to the Royal Navy. Mine keeps good time and the battery lasts a couple of years with the typical second hand jump to indicate a failing battery.
