Other: There is a lot to love about this watch, especially if you have a deep appreciation for military history like we do. Justin's grandfather served proudly in World War II, so this one really speaks to him personally - What a fantastic conversation piece! It should come as no surprise that it looks best under the cuff of a green military jacket.
