With its timeless design and classic styling, the Springfield from S&B™ Watches is a tribute to the greatest generation. Inspired by the very watch that was issued to US Infantry during World War II, the watch combines functional simplicity with rugged durability and vintage appeal that will never expire. The Springfield is S&B’s answer to the classic American field watch that has graced the wrists of men for nearly a century.
First introduced in 2015, this watch has been one of S&B’s most sought-after timepieces. Initially funded on Kickstarter, S&B brought the Springfield to market in January of 2016. The watch was an immediate hit and by mid-2017 the Springfield was no longer in stock with S&B having sold all available inventory.
It was clear that S&B had hit a homerun with the Springfield, and being the perfectionists that we are, we wanted to make it even better. Upon announcing that we wanted to produce a new evolution of the Springfield, we immediately received tremendous amounts of feedback from our customers, and we listened. It’s now June 2019 and we’re thrilled to deliver the latest evolution of this amazing watch, the Springfield GMT. Let’s take a look at what we’ve done differently this time.
For starters, the Springfield GMT continues to feature Swiss Ronda quartz movement inside the 316L stainless steel case. However, the original Springfield had 20mm lugs. With the new design, we’ve increased the lug size to 22mm, which flows a lot better with the 44mm case size.
We’ve also added the GMT function with a 24-hour format hand and updated bezel to indicate a second time zone. The GMT hand is highlighted with red triangle tip. It looks awesome!
Retaining one of our favorite cosmetic features, the dial is protected by a domed Sapphire crystal. The domed shape really compliments the watch and gives it that added touch of vintage style.
The numbers on the watch dial have undergone a slight style change and we’re using C3 Super-LumiNova for a beautiful afterglow.
Let’s not forget the change of the hands as well. Our customers provided us with overwhelming feedback when we displayed sample candidates of possible new hands. We took that feedback and delivered exactly what they requested.
Water resistant to 100 meters, styles offered include a brushed steel case and matching case back with green dial, or black case with matching case back and black dial. Each comes with a green NATO strap and a two-year warranty.
The Springfield GMT presents a total refinement of our classic field watch. Whether you're re a hardcore aficionado or just looking for a simple yet classic style, the Springfield GMT Field Watch is an absolute must have.
