At Original Grain, each timepiece tells a story, and the watches in their Military Collection are no different.
Brothers Ryan and Andrew Beltran are always fueled by a passion to create unique one-of-a-kind timepieces. The watches in their latest collection are an authentic homage to all who have served; this watch collection features a variety of styles and colorways that preserve a piece of time.
Every watch is built to perfection while at the same time, harnesses the energy and durability of reclaimed military materials. The Military Collection features handcrafted styles made with vintage military gear, including genuine wood from reclaimed ammo boxes, leather from WW-II and Vietnam-era bomber jackets, surplus artillery shells, and Army tent canvas.
Original Grain prides itself on using age-old techniques to craft a unique wood and steel watch. Each watch comes with a metal band inlaid with actual ammunition creates – the creates that transported ammo to the front line troops. As a bonus, every watch from the Military collection comes with an extra military surplus strap. The additional straps come from recycled Army tent canvas, woodland camo uniforms, and vintage leather bomber jackets.
In a gallant effort to pay homage to the traditional field watch, Original Grain has designed a new dial featuring white indices. Originally conceived during the Second World War, the field watch aka The A-11 featured a clean black dial, white indices, a nickel or silver case, and a one-piece strap.
Along with the design team, Co-Founder Andrew Beltran who previously served as a Sgt. in the U.S. Marines, influenced the design for each watch in the Military Collection. All of the watches come with an extra military surplus strap, strap removal tool, certificate of authenticity, and a limited edition collector’s wooden box to safely store your one-of-a-kind timepiece.
In continuing to do good while selling watches, a portion of all proceeds from each purchase in this collection goes toward supporting the families of our nation’s fallen heroes.
There’s no camouflaging this level of genuineness. Each watch features genuine gear, used by heroes of days past. Own a slice of history HERE.
