You can't get much more iconic than the General Issue, or "GI" style wristwatch.
Produced under contract for the US Military since the 1960s, these simple spec. watches were fashioned by a handful of American manufacturers for American servicemen. Many of these timepieces were used extensively - forged in the infernos by the heroes that wore them. Due to the robust nature and clean lines, a demand was born in the civilian market, and brands such as Hamilton continued producing them through the 1980s for commercial sale under their "Khaki" collection with only minor changes from their General Issue counterparts.
This particular example is one such timepiece, a "continuation" of their military contract so to speak. With added dial text, a simplified screw case back and removable spring bars being the only major differentiators, this is the perfect watch for...well...just about everyone. With a bombproof manual-wind movement and spartan military styling always en vogue, these timekeepers are the perfect companions for everything from everyday wear to fighting battles in dank jungles.
Corrosion-resistant steel case is approximately 33mm (excluding crown).
Overall condition: Case is in excellent condition over all, devoid of noteworthy blemishes. Original dial and hands are in similarly excellent condition, showing an even patination across the hour markers and hands. Original unsigned crown.
Includes two 18mm nylon straps by Crown & Buckle.
