There is not one A-11 watch, but several. It was a series of specifications given to watchmakers during WWII, each giving it their own touches, with small modifications for different branches.
The specifications for an A-11 were simple, but not simple to achieve: precision, durability, and readability. Built to stand up to the rigors of wartime use and help coordinate operations, it has become a benchmark design for American watchmaking that has stood the test of time.
