    Watch cap

    A friend of mine made mention of a watch cap yesterday and I had never heard the term. How many here are familiar with the term? or even know what one is?
    I know this is not fishing related but I couldn't find another place to put it.

    While I was in the Navy a watch cap was worn to keep your head warm. They were issued at boot camp as part of our gear.

    I hadn't heard of it either but it is a cap as luckydog described a knit type cap worn to keep the head warm. I was thinking something on a pocket watch.

    #6 is classification for watch cap


    UNCLASSIFIED
    ROUTINE
    R 011705Z SEP 15
    FM CNO WASHINGTON DC
    TO NAVADMIN
    INFO CNO WASHINGTON DC
    BT
    UNCLAS

    SUBJ/UNIFORM POLICY CHANGES//

    NAVADMIN 208/15

    MSGID/GENADMIN/CNO WASHINGTON DC/N1/SEP//
    REF/A/DOC/NAVPERS 15665I/1JAN11//
    AMPN/REF A IS NAVPERS 15665I, UNITED STATES NAVY UNIFORM REGULATIONS.//

    RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces uniform policy changes for the following
    Navy uniforms and uniform components: Navy Working Uniform Type I (NWU1),
    Navy blue coveralls, Navy all weather coat, cold weather parka, Navy knit
    watch cap (black), boat cloak and capes, tiara, beret, overshoes, khaki
    windbreaker, and the Command-at-Sea and Command Ashore/Project Manager
    insignia.

    2. NWU1. Commencing 1 October 2015, the requirement for the number of NWU1
    uniforms maintained by Sailors in their sea bag will decrease from four to
    three sets. Enlisted clothing replacement allowances will be adjusted to
    support issuing three sets of NWU1s with a replacement cycle of one set every
    twenty-four months.

    3. Navy Blue Coveralls. Commencing 1 October 2015, the Navy blue coverall
    will be discontinued as a Navy uniform and re-designated as a dirty work
    component. The Navy blue coverall will be worn only to perform work that
    would otherwise soil other Navy uniforms while performing the same task.
    All accoutrements except for name tapes are to be removed. The wearing of
    Navy head gear is optional, but when doing so in a covered area, salutes are
    required to be rendered. Head gear will be worn per current Navy coverall
    uniform policy guidelines. Two sets of coveralls will continue to be issued
    and required to be maintained in the sea bag for all enlisted Sailors.
    Enlisted clothing replacement allowances will continue to be provided to
    facilitate issuing two sets of Navy blue coveralls with a replacement cycle
    of one set every 12 months. This policy decision is predicated on the
    required wear of the flame resistant coverall at sea and the NWU1 ashore as
    the standard daily working uniform.

    4. All Weather Coat. Commencing 1 October 2015, the double-breasted all
    weather coat will be issued to recruits at Recruit Training Command,
    Great Lakes and will be designated as the standard all weather coat for the
    Navy. The single-breasted All Weather Coat will remain optional for wear
    until 1 October 2020. Enlisted clothing replacement allowances will be
    adjusted to support issuing one double-breasted All Weather Coat and
    replacement of the existing single breasted all weather coat by 1 October
    2020.

    5. Cold Weather Parka. Commencing 1 October 2015, an optional black cold
    weather parka (CWP) will be authorized for wear with service and service
    dress uniforms. Estimated availability in the Navy Exchange is November
    2015. The CWP may also be worn with civilian clothing when the rank tab is
    removed. The optional CWP is made of a water proof and wind resistant
    fabric. Features of the CWP include a hidden hood, center-chest rank tab and
    ability to support the zip-in zip-out NWU1 fleece liner for additional cold
    weather protection. The CWP will be available for purchase at the NEX
    uniform stores at Norfolk Naval Base, Joint Base Myer Henderson Hall, and
    Newport, Rhode Island, as well as at the NEX Uniform Support Call Center 30
    November 2015 for a price of $330.90.

    6. Navy Black Knit Watch Cap. The intent of this policy is to expand the
    wear of the black knit watch cap as a cold weather head gear option.
    Commencing 1 October 2015, the Navy knit watch cap can be worn by officers,
    chief petty officers and enlisted personnel during cold weather conditions
    that may result in personal injury if not worn. Authorization for wear will
    be granted by unit commanding officers (at sea) or regional commanders
    (ashore). The black knit watch cap is authorized for wear with the service
    dress and service uniforms, except service dress white and summer white
    uniforms when worn with appropriate outer wear (specifically, NWU and black
    cold weather parka, all weather coat, reefer, pea coat and bridge coat). The
    Eisenhower jacket is not considered cold weather outer wear.

    7. Effective 1 October 2016, the following uniform components will be
    discontinued and will be no longer authorized for wear with the Navy uniform.
    The infrequent use, procurement and low demand requirements of these items
    precipitated the decision to delete their use as Navy uniform components.
    a. Officer/CPO Boat Cloak (male)
    b. Officer/CPO Dress Cape (female)
    c. Officer/CPO Khaki Windbreaker (male/female)
    d. Tiara (female)
    e. Beret (female)
    f. Overshoes (male/females)

    8. Command-at-Sea and Command Ashore/Project Manager Insignia. Effective
    immediately, the Command at Sea and Command Ashore/Project Manager insignia
    is authorized for wear by all eligible officers to include Flag officers who
    held command position prior to obtaining Flag rank. For Flag officers, the
    Command at Sea and Command Ashore/Project Manager Insignia will be worn in
    the post tour position. If both pins were earned, officers may choose to
    wear the command pin of their choice. Flag officers may not earn a command
    pin.

    9. Questions regarding uniform policy and the uniform policy changes
    reflected in this NAVADMIN should be directed to the Navy Uniform Matters
    Office (OPNAV N131U) via e-mail to Mr. Robert B. Carroll, Head of Navy
    Uniform Matters at robert.b.carroll(at)navy.mil; LSCS(AW/EXW/SW) Judith P.
    Nelson-Williams, Deputy Head, at judith.nelson (at)navy.mil; PS1 (SW/AW)
    Manuel A. Guiracocha at manuel.guiracocha(at)navy.mil.

    10. This NAVADMIN will remain in effect until superseded or canceled,
    whichever occurs first. File until reference (a) has been updated to
    reflect the new policy changes.

    11. Released by Vice Admiral W. F. Moran, N1.//
