The A-11 is inimitable in its heritage and place in history among military watches—and all watches, for that matter. The original A-11 was based on US Government specifications for watches for military use and was critical to military success in the world’s most pivotal conflicts. The Praesidus A-11 Type 44 is the modern equivalent, enhancing the original A-11 through upgraded construction and time-keeping specifications.

The Type 44 measures 38mm across, 45mm lug-to-lug, and 13mm thick with a 20mm lug width. It features a surgical-grade polished stainless steel case that guarantees 10 ATM water resistance, far more than the original A-11. Despite the modern ratings, a double-domed acrylic crystal with an anti-reflective coating still provides the watch with an old-school look and feel.

Inside is the Swiss-made SOPROD P024 caliber, which features 25-jewels, hacking seconds, a 38 hour power reserve, and a frequency of 28,800 bph. A hand wound movement, it provides the authentic feel of an original manually wound A-11 but with modern components and timekeeping technology.

About Praesidus

Praesidus got its start in 2019 after meeting WWII hero Tom Rice. Rice was a graduate of parachute school and jumped over Normandy for both Operation Overlord and Operation Market Garden. His subsequent experiences in the Battle of the Bulge and fruitful life after service are the foundations on which Praesidus Watches is based. Tom Rice famously lost his military watch, but the brand faithfully builds modern watches that are faithful to the specifications and design language of vintage military watches. A portion of every purchase is donated to Praesidus’ partner organizations to benefit veteran associations and communities.
