All-black and delightfully “mean”, the Breitling Super Avenger Military is a rare example of a 24 hour watch. In the United States we refer to 24 hour format time as military time. That is because here it is primarily the military that uses this format while civilians use a 12 hour format. We are partial to our AMs and PMs. Many who live or travel outside of the US know the the 24 hour format is used heavily all over the world for a range of purposes from television schedules to movie times.

The latest model to be announced by Mk II is called the Fulcrum and it’s being advertised as an “American Milsub” and it’s Mk II’s vision of a theoretical milsub made for the American military.
The Azimuth SP-1 Landship tank watch gets a new limited edition set of watches in full battle paint… called the “Battle Tank” collection. A set of six new watches from the brand have been given special paint jobs in honor of historic tanks (as described below). We have an aBlogtoWatch hands-on review of an SP-1 Landship watch coming soon, but in the meantime you can check out these interesting versions painted up like enthusiast WWII tank models.
A new watch and brand from the guy that brought us GasGasBones straps. Take a look inside the introductory model from 6B Watches, the limited edition MK1 Pilot’s Chronograph.
CX Swiss Military watches are produced by Charmex in Switzerland. We’ve long since been a fan of their sometimes quirky, and sometimes very cool military style sport watches. Today we are going to review a yachting timer, the Typhoon.
What you see here are two newer watches in the Luminox Recon collection, as part of their “land” family of timepieces. The Recon series watches are designed around the idea of offering special features for members of a tactical reconnaissance team.
Bulova’s Hack follows a well-established military theme, referencing an original WWII design from their own archives. The styling combines with a Miyota quartz movement to make for an affordable watch ready for the outdoors.
I was very pleased to hear that I had won the MTM Special Ops Silencer from aBlogtoWatch and am grateful for the opportunity to share my impressions of this timepiece…
A lot of the times that we post a video about some cool, expensive Swiss watch on the aBlogtoWatch YouTube channel, we get a regular type of comment. In some manner or another one of our viewers says something akin to “I will wait until the Chinese make one for a few hundred dollars.”
The MTM Rad radiation detection watch is, with no exaggeration, a unique watch. Very few people will ever need one and those that do will be delighted to find it.
You see, this watch has a Geiger counter in it. $1,500 gets you a very unobtrusive radiation detector you can wear on your wrist. That, as I will explain, is amazing.
Luminox has announced a new model called the Recon Nav SPC (Navigation Specialist) which offers a feature set that the fifteen-year-old Me would have killed to have for orienteering meets.
This watch would be the Victorinox Swiss Army Night Vision III, but Swiss Army decided to drop the numerals from the name and stop counting.
The original idea behind Minuteman watches (quite appropriately named) was for the pieces to be assembled in the United States by disabled war veterans. It was a good idea, given that disabled veterans are a laudable group to work with/benefit, and it is a great goal to give even a few who are out of work, work…
The watch was a Seiko SKX009 diver and was on his wrist for at least the entirety of the early 1990s Gulf War. According to the letter and many images from the time, General Schwarzkopf indeed “double wristed it” with a watch on each wrist.
If a watch can handle the stress of combat, surely it can deal with the dangers of my channel-surfing lifestyle. Such is the connection that the Uniq GAF draws between its self and the Georgian Armed Forces.
The point of this watch is either an idea you’ll immediately love or dismiss. For tactical and utility purposes, this MTM Falcon watch has a dial which turns into a light. It started with the MTM Hawk collection and evolved here in the Falcon range. These are special proprietary designs and movements which offer the […]
