Imperial Watch Armor is a type of armor in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. It is worn by the Watch Captains, as well as the elite Palace Guards that oversee the protection of the Imperial City Palace and the Elder Council.


Imperial Watch Armor is distinguished from Imperial Dragon Armor and Legion Armor by the difference in coloration and patterns.

Palace cuirassEdit

Silver with a large amount of gold inlay, as well as bearing the dragon rampant insignia on the chest plate, a red dragon belt, pauldron straps and collaring.

Watch cuirassEdit

Has much less gold inlay, brown dragon belt, and pauldron straps and no collaring.



The Imperial Watch Armor is impossible to obtain. There are, however, certain cases where the shield can be obtained:
