Made with a worsted yarn 100% wool and designed based on the watch cap used by the US military during the World War II, this knit cap features a unique knitted fabric design on the flap and a stylish colour gradation that was developed by adjusting the colour nuance during the spinning stage of the manufacturing process. This enables only the surface to fade while preserving the colours in all other areas.
The US military watch cap in this style has been favoured for decades by US Navy sailors and personnel. Known from many pictures from the wartime period this hat became iconic.
The name “watch cap” goes back to the sailor’s duty of keeping watch, on which they wore this hat.
