The tool watch is aimed at helping out with something more than just telling the time. Thanks to any number of special features or materials, a tool watch is very perfect for the men who are fairly active and needs something they can wear every day. I think “tool” is also an intangible quality, aside from a watch that has been designed for a specific purpose. It’s a watch that gives off an air of substantial ruggedness, something that seems beautiful from an engineering standpoint more so than an aesthetic one.
It was not until after WWII and during the 1950’s that the concept of a tool watch truly evolved. The 1950’s was the period of transcontinental flight, SCUBA diving, and exploration such as summiting Mount Everest that under lied the necessity of having a timepiece that can withstand the rigors of outside activity. The 1950’s was also a period that predated the ubiquity of today’s timekeeping whereby the only way to find the correct time was on a mechanical watch or clock.
For years and years, fake watches UK served not only as everyday timekeepers but also legitimate tools: a diver’s underwater timing mechanism, a driver’s tachymeter,ect. Swiss companies realized they must expand their catalog with technical watches that would satisfy specific client needs and in doing so fill a gap in the market. Rolex was a frontrunner. Using the Oyster case and the various patents it had acquired as a starting point, it created the Explorer and the Turn-o-graph which morphed into the iconic Submariner. The GMT, the Milgauss and later the Explorer II were all tool watches with a common identity.
