The Genuine Navy SEAL Watch.
This is the watch requested by the U.S. Navy SEALs for its unique illumination technology. Identified as a vital element for maintaining light discipline during night missions, borosilicate glass capsules with phosphor-lined interiors make up the watch's 12 hour positions and its hour, minute, and second hands. Tritium gas sealed within each capsule reacts with the phosphor lining, causing it to fluoresce for more than 25 years without the need for a recharge from a light source.
The watch's case and case back are made from carbon-reinforced polycarbonate; case back is secured with stainless steel screws. It has a ratcheting, unidirectional polymer bezel for measuring elapsed time and a push-in stainless steel crown with double O-rings to ensure its water resistance down to 660'. The Swiss quartz movement provides impeccable timekeeping for on-the-second synchronization. The face is protected by a tempered, scratch-resistant mineral crystal. Its black polyurethane strap defies seawater, slush, rain, or snow.
Case 1-3/4" Diam. x 1/2" D. (2 oz.)
I bought this watch for my husband for Christmas. He loves watches and was really surprised. He loves it!
I bought the watch for my husband. He likes the watch but not the strap - when he inserts the strap into the "movable" holder it does not stay in place. The tip of the strap snags on his shirt sleeve. He says the strap is too long.
This watch is unique in that it is a simple design but very rugged. A very basic appearance almost minimalist in structure but after wearing it a short time you can tell there is complex engineering around the mineral crystal face and the quartz movement beneath. Rugged and refined.
