Swiss Army Wenger Battalion Watch Review: Chrono, Diver, Ladies

Updated on January 15, 2015

Wenger Battalion

With Battalion collection Wenger continue to expand Swiss Army's military watches department. The main alteration from Aerograph, Terragraph, and, most importantly, Aquagraph (since Battalion Diver competes directly with it) lies in the indexes and the crown. Large numerals disappear altogether, leaving the scene for extra fat, lume loaded indexes – round or rectangular depending on the placement – while a prominent crown with sturdy protection protrudes from the right side of the case creating a unique crescent shape.

Besides these changes, Battalion feature several visual enhancements and additions: a two-tone variation for the stainless steel bracelet renders one model suitable for more formal wearing occasions, while more liberal use of red for the subdials in the chronographs leads to a characteristic racing watch look.

Both men's and ladies models exist, the chief difference manifested in smaller proportions and the reluctance of Wenger (But also Swiss Army in general) to offer women black dial timepieces.

Battalion Diver

This diver watch is notable for its strongly conventional dial design – a generally similar pattern appears on Rolex timers (which many associate with the norm because of this brand's omnipresent advertisement campaigns). Still, it is hard to improve on such classic configurations, and many brands continue to rely on it.

The unidirectional rotating bezel features a luminous marking and indexes that compliment those on the dial itself. Economy emerges as a principal quality – every design feature is directed to make reading and following time easier in harsh airless conditions.

Field Chrono

Chronograph Battalion watches veer significantly from the bare discipline of Diver pieces. The subdials blend with a grid of miniature numerals and markers, creating saturated with color and information screens which aims to replicate a car panel.

This is a racing watch: the bezel carries a tachymeter, while the visual were planned to display a timing blueprint that will remain stable at high speed.

Swiss Army/Wenger equip this timepiece with a steel bracelet or a rubber or leather strap.
