N.W.C., Naval Watch Company, has teamed up with LOWERCASE for a set of vintage military-inspired watches. N.W.C. was established in Otrib, Switzerland in the 1800s; the company has been known to be one of the first to incorporate luminous paint over dials of military watches, and now the company is bringing back some of its classics.
Featured are four watches, each with a 39mm case with smooth acrylic glass. Beige phosphorescent paint has been applied to each of the watch’s faces to mirror a ’70s aesthetic, popping out against a black base. The watches come with four different straps — metal, mesh, ripstop and leather — and features delicately crafted dials, date lens and see-through back covers. Each watch is made in Japan and comes with a Seiko NH35A automatic movement with a 41-hour power reserve.
N.W.C. and Lowercase’s vintage military-inspired watches will be available on December 11 on BEAMS’ website, ranging from ¥25,300 – ¥38,500 JPY (approximately $240 – $366 USD).
