Our Vietnam Watches are virtually identical in appearance to the watches used by American troops in the Vietnam war during the 1960s and 1970s and we produce two variants in both covert black and the original olive drab.
We manufactured the plastic Vietnam watches for many years which were based on the original Vietnam models which you can see when you click this link where there are various images and details. The actual US Military Issue models were made of plastic because they were deemed disposable and of course the problem with making our own Vietnam watches in plastic is they were in effect very basic just like the originals so in 2010 we decided to completely rethink the watch and whilst keeping the original appearance, weight and feel we switched to all metal construction which means that although the watch looks very close to the originals it is vastly superior in both durability and general quality.
