CHICAGO (May 6, 2021) – Bertucci® Ultimate Field Watch™ introduces the A-2RA RETROFORM™, a painstakingly authentic, retro-inspired field watch that pays homage to military-issued field watches of the 1960s. The watch’s retro-cool look makes a bold statement and is designed for those who seek authenticity.

“We studied vintage watches to ensure the RETROFORM stays true to the past, but also incorporates a number of subtle improvements to enhance overall performance, durability and comfort,” said Tammy Mcguire, a spokesperson for Bertucci Ultimate Field Watch.

RETROFORM 40mm (MSRP: $140)

One of the most notable features of the A-2RA RETROFORM is its rugged, U.S. Patented, Unibody™ 40 mm case. The fiber-reinforced polycarbonate case is lightweight, durable and lays comfortably on the wrist. The case features a distinct olive drab (OD) color, which is an authentic U.S. Army color.

Additionally, the watch features a Duraform™ domed crystal, which is impact, shatter and fingerprint resistant with high optical clarity. The A-2RA RETROFORM is powered by a U.S. assembled, all-metal jeweled movement for pinpoint accuracy, reliability and long-lasting life.

Other notable features include:

  • Swiss super luminous hands and markers for enhanced visibility in low-light conditions
  • Easy-to-read dial with 12- and 24-hour time markings
  • U.S. Patented, Active Comfort™ RETROFORM™ nylon band provides wrist-forming comfort (Available in three colors: OD, Khaki and Ghost Gray)
  • Five-year battery life
  • 100 m water resistance
  • Assembled in the U.S. using U.S and international parts
  • Three-year warranty
