    An "observation" watch is a high precision timepiece with large case and large dial, characterised by high rate accuracy, enhanced legibility, and a certain degree of robustness. This type of watches was initially used to time scientific observations, as a navigation instrument, or in military applications such as a deck or aviator's watch.
