ELEMENT IN THE CROWN
The crown is filled with natural American soil – visible through the transparent crown cap – from military forts throughout the United States. Integrating this distinctive BAUSELE feature into a design that met the stringent MIL-W-46374F specifications was a challenge, but thankfully not an impossible one.
THE PERFECT "TOOL" WATCH
This classic field watch, reference 31101, meets the standards described in detail for the watch case construction, shape and size onpage 31 of military specifications MIL-W-46374F(hence the first two digits of the watch reference).
It features a 316L surgical grade stainless-steel case (untreated or with black DLC coating), a dial and hands with “old radium” Luminova®, and a domed sapphire crystal with five layers of anti-reflective coating. The automatic, hacking movement (pull the crown and the movement stops so the watch can be synchronized with another timekeeper) is reputed for its precision, reliability and durability. It has 24 jewels, a 41-hour power reserve and is accurate to within -20/+40 seconds per day.
