THE ULTIMATE AFFORDABLE WATCH GUIDES. UNBIASED & HONEST REVIEWS.
The military watch is one of my favorite watch styles. The modern military watch has its foundation in the vintage watches of World War I and World War II. Today, there are many great military watches that pay homage to those vintage watches. I have handpicked for you the 13 best military watches available for under $100.
This is a very special review from me because not only is this the first affordable watch review for the site, but this is also the first watch in my collection and what got me to fall in love with affordable watches. 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. Some historians attribute the idea for the wristwatch to Napoleon because of his irritation at having to constantly open his pocket watch, while others credit World War I for popularizing the wrist watch due to the need to coordinate movements in some battles by over a million troops by land, air, and sea. Today, there are many affordable options in different military watch styles.
