When you travel a lot, you get bombarded for ads for watches – big chunky expensive awkward things you can wear around your wrist to snag on machinery. Some of them look like something James Bond would wear.
Because I’m a horrible person, I used to ask people who wore the fancy ones with the time-shift computer bezels “how does that work?”
I didn’t look at this tactical watch, but it’s not the last watch I will ever buy. The last watch I will ever buy was the one I bought in 1995 – a fake Rolex I got in South Korea for $15, which I gave to my then-boss so I could watch his face as he tried to decide whether or not to tell me it was a fake or to appear grateful for the inappropriate gift.
I assume a ‘tactical’ watch has a huge scope on it, a laser designator, and perhaps an extensible cheese-wire for beheading ISIS agents. It’s carbon fiber except for the parts that are damascus steel or carbon crystal.
Thinking “damascus steel watch” made me have to go do a google image search. Wow, there are some amazing high layer-count mini-billets out there. Does damascus equal “tactical”?
