My wife had let me choose a watch for my birthday and I selected a Timex Weekender 40 gift box. Enclosed was a Timex Weekender 40 with a blue dial, a blue nylon NATO strap, and a brown leather NATO strap for under $40. Subsequently, this watch has been a major part of my collection and is still on my wrist every week.
Military watches have been the driving force behind many horological developments.
