The Reef Tiger 1980S is just one of the most water resistant military mechanical watches. Out of all the military style watches on this list, it is the most reliable watch that functions up to 1,00 feet underwater. Furthermore, its strap is made of synthetic fabric which military units commonly used for special operations. The heightened bezel rotates in one direction making it the perfect watch for diving. You really can’t argue why this is considered one of the best.
In this list, the Reef Tiger 1980S is the only military watches with a self-winding mechanical movement. The mechanical movement is the first choice for luxury watches because of the craftsmanship of its mechanical devices. A series of complex and very small components can work together to support the timepiece, which is just one of the hard work of completing this type of watch.
However, for others that want to stick to tradition, automatic or mechanical powered sources are the best for their preference. There are six conventional types of power sources. You can find them as mechanical (hand-wound), automatic (self-winding), kinetic, solar-powered, precisionist, and quartz. Solar powered ones guarantee power at all times.This specific feature is required when you go hiking or hunting and that proper military watches simply require. You can also use it when you visit an area where there’s not much light, but you still need to keep track of time, else even the best of all military mechanical watches would be useless in that kind of situation. A watch’s night vision is a pretty convenient feature because it makes the watch very useful literally at all times.
