Since the beginning of modern warfare, the U.S. government has utilized private manufacturing for the production of its vehicles, equipment and weapons. The watches the government issued to its troops were no exception. Instead of producing their own, the U.S. government generally provided a specification that was dutifully followed by its contractors.

Enter the GG-W-113. One of the U.S. government’s longest running specifications, this document detailed the design and efficacy requirements for the wrist watch issued to its military pilots. Issued on June 6th, 1967, this specification highlighted the U.S. military’s need for a legible, accurate, and durable timepiece for use in active combat situations.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
