Today we’re looking at the Military Watch Collection – Czechoslovakian Soldier’s Watch from the 1940s.
The Czechoslovakian soldier’s watch has many of the features that are important to troops in combat situations, such as large, luminous hands and markers and a clear, Arabic font to aid legibility. Finished with a brown leatherette strap.
Each watch was sold accompanied with a 16 page magazine, packed with detailed information on how the featured watch would have been used, as well as background information on watch design and the great watch manufacturers.
Czechoslovakia is only a part of the Military Watches Collection from Eaglemoss, which featured many different watches (and histories).
All watches in the Military Watches Collection had the Eaglemoss stamp of approval and each timepiece included a Japanese quartz movement, was water resistant and was guaranteed against defects in manufacture for two years from the date of purchase.
Below are images we found online of the watch. (No, the hairy arm and wrist are not ours!)
And here we have a review of the watch and the accompanying magazine…
They are not sold at Eaglemoss anymore and clicking links just takes you round and round with no shopping cart and when looking at eBay I found a lot of the magazines but few actual watches.
