Inspired by the WWI infantryman's field watch, the SVT-FW44 answers the same call to synchronize and coordinate movement, but it does so within the business and social battlefields of today. Undeniably, the field watch and its ever increasing functionality improved the effectiveness of infantrymen and commanders alike. As soldiers scrambled out of trenches of the somme, or engaged in flanking maneuver under the darkness of the Argonne Forest, time dictated their success or failure. Similarly, today's timepiece must also offer functionality and effectiveness both trademarks of the classically styled SVT-FW44. A Ronda 513 Swiss movement, comprised of all Swiss components and assembled by Swiss craftsmen, housed within a 44mm aerospace grade stainless steel case, provides unquestioned reliability. The media-etched case and screw down crown repel environmental threats like wind and water. The SVT-FW44's super luminova markers and refined royal blue second hand make sighting in on time simple. Fine hand-made Italian calf leather straps with their raw unfinished edges, as well as the deep-etched model number on the case wall, complete the SVT-FW44.
