The History of the Trench Watch

The iconic and innovative trench watch was born in the trenches of Flanders during the First World War. 

The first wrist watches were private commissions made by wealthy officers serving on the front line. They were designed be tough, practical, easy to use but they were also meant to be objects of beauty. By 1915 every luxury jeweller in London, Paris and Geneva were producing their own wrist-watch aimed at front line soldiers, they called them trench watches.

The Lufbery Mark VII takes its inspiration from these first wrist watches. The shape of our case and the design of our crown pays homage to their iconic design. Our dial is almost identical to the dials of the original trench watches, which were heavily influenced by the fashionable art nouveau style of the time.
