Nº 1914

Microbrand military watches don’t get any better than our Nº 1914 collection, a tribute to the timepieces that have served British soldiers.

Every element of this watch has been crafted with the utmost care, from the precise quartz movement to the durable sapphire-coated crystal.

Drawing inspiration from World War One: an era where warfare made digging about in one’s pocket far too time-consuming.
