Sunday Rewind: Delve Deeply Into The ‘Dirty Dozen’

Following the release of the “The Long Return Part II,” we thought it might be fun to take a look back at an in-depth piece about the “Dirty Dozen” watches that were used in World War II via a commission from the British Ministry of Defense. If you like your watches vintage, tough as nails, and always on a NATO, you’re going to love the full story on these very cool military tool watches. 

Originally produced by HODINKEE alum Arthur Touchot almost four years ago, this piece breaks down the war-time need for a reliable watch and the 12 brands that stepped up to fill the demand. From throwback brands like Buren and Grana to modern-day players like Omega, Longines, IWC, and JLC, the legacy of the W.W.W. is one for the ages, and these watches remain eminently collectible and reflective of a time long since passed.
