The holiday season is coming up and we advice you to start picking up gifts for yourself and for your family before the rush season comes in. For us here at SOFREP, we’re quite passionate about men’s watches. That’s why we partnered with Praesidus, a veteran-owned company who specializes in historical luxury watches.

So, if you’re like us, here are our top ten recommendations for watches this winter season. And yes, gift it to yourself because you deserve it after a year-long hard work.

1. Praesidus A-11 Camo Watch

Praesidus A-11 Camo Watch

The A-11 Camo X The Rifle is a unique collaboration between Praesidus and Andrew Biggio – author of The Rifle around the commemoration of the Heroes of the Pacific. In recent years, Andrew has been connecting with hundreds of WW2 Combat Veterans through a unique M1 Garand Rifle that each veteran signs. This culminated into his book: The Rifle. The fruit of this collaboration is the A-11 Camo – inspired by the sacrifices & equipment of the US Marines during the Pacific Campaign.

2. Praesidus A-11 Tom Rice Edition

Praesidus A-11 Tom Rice Edition

Another favorite of ours is the one from Praesidus‘ Tom Rice Edition.

Inspired by the now iconic A-11 watch specification developed by the US Army for watch manufacturers during WW2, our watch is tailor-made to honor the achievements Tom Rice and many men alongside him have fought for on the beaches of Normandy.
