Buckshot-Sonnys-Military-Watches

Maybe it’s an all too enthralling trip to Hodinkee, or just the fact that we’re kind of sick of the collection of modern watches sitting around, but we’ve been jonesing for a good looking vintage watch for a while. Money isn’t falling from trees these days, so we had to immediately rule out anything that could be sold at a Sotheby’s auction. Thankfully, Buckshot Sonny’s has a collection of authentic, military issue watches from Benrus and Hamilton dated from 1965-1980 that are all just shy of $400. Each watch is lovingly refurbished by master watch repairman Steve Evavold from Chicago’s Division Street Watch Co. You’re getting the same amount of history (if not more) and style as the much more expensive counterparts but at a fraction of the cost.

There are few watches with as storied a legacy as the G-SHOCK. Originally released in 1983, the Shock Resistant and 200M Water Resistant watch has remained relevant to this day. It just got even better with the release of the first full-metal addition to the continually evolving 2100 line. This model retains the original streamlined, minimalist design while being even more sleek, durable and feature-packed. With Tough Solar Power, Smartphone Link and Super Illuminator, it’s an analog watch built for the digital age. The G-SHOCK GBD2100 is available in silver, black IP and Bronze IP colorways, so there’s a stylish version for every occasion.
