Our mission is to design and build the best military watches in the world today. We have a passion for watch design and we take on the challenges that military watches naturally bring. We have interviewed not only our own military forces but military and police personnel from all over the world so that we could develop the ultimate “go-to” watch for military.
- Míleata watches are tough and durable, reliable and dependable.
- All our watches are designed in and assembled by hand in Ireland.
- Míleata's watches are designed from the ground up to be thoroughbred military watches, not simply civilian watches playing dress-up.
Míleata’s promise is to go above and beyond in the pursuit of perfection and durability with an uncompromising commitment to quality and a close attention to detail.
Our commitment to customer service is second to none.
A company is only as strong as its customers, so we take customer service very seriously.
- Your happiness is ours, so if you have any issues with your purchase let us know we are here to help.
- Your opinion is also important to us and we are here to listen if you have feedback to improve our products.
When we set out to design this watch we looked at what was currently on the market and what military were generally wearing. We discovered that the majority are wearing big clumsy plastic “Shock” watches. There is a time and a place for these types of watches but not in a professional military environment. Míleata watches bring a higher level of professionalism with a watch that integrates into the wearers uniform. Rather than using cheap plastic we milled our case from solid steel, to produce a more durable watch.
The case was designed with comfort and usability in mind. It is not too big that it can be clumsy on the wrist, nor is it too small so that it is easily read. Every curve and surface of the case was designed to slide under sleeves so that it doesn’t get caught. The bezel was designed to minimise the amount of sand and dirt that can get in under the bezel jamming the workings. It is also slightly harder to turn than normal to avoid unintentional rotation. The crown guard was designed to protect the crown but care was taken so it did not dig into the back of the wrist.
To make it more durable and reduce the amount of removeable parts we welded solid steel bars to the lugs. This way the watch is not relying on thin flimsy spring bars and there is no need for tools when changing straps, you simply slide the old strap off and weave on a new one.
The dial uses a good strong lume so that it will illuminate all during the night but not too much so that it will give you position away in the dark. The dial is also free of unnecessary clutter to make it more legible.
To reduce hard reflections the crystal has been double domed. This also means the dial will not distort when viewing at any angle. We have coated the inside of the crystal with an anti-reflective coating so it will not wear off.
