Vietnam War Era U.S. Military Field Watches

From the Time Bum blog-

Several readers have asked me how they might get started collecting vintage watches. The world of new watches is already fairly vast, but when you add all the watches that were ever built to the mix, it can be overwhelming. Certainly, there are plenty of nice pieces out there in the $1000 and up range, but what if a Bum like myself wanted to just dip a toe into the antique watch waters? What is the best vintage watch for a modern cheapskate? To find out, I sat down with Zaf Basha of ClassicWatch.com. Zaf has bought and sold thousands of vintage watches over the years and knows a thing or two about watches at all points of the price spectrum. He recommended the humble field watch issued to American servicemen from the 1950s through the 1970s. They have the right look, quality mechanical movements, loads of history, and can be easily found in good condition in the decidedly Bum-friendly $250-350 range.
