We were cleaning up our archive of photo's and came across some photo's related to those and though it may be of interest to some of you.

Typically troops on deployment will come with a special logo etc for use on patches, and challenge coins. Sometimes they will even have a special batch of knives made up. In this case they did all of the above plus had us make up a special batch of watches.

Here is how this came about. When my brand Minuteman Watch Co was just starting out a few years ago. We popped up on the radar of one of the finest custom knifemakers around and a general salt of the earth Bill Harsey. Bill has a very strong following in military and leo circles and has created many special knives for those that need a rugged tool and tactical situations. As such he always seems to be working on some sort of project with special folks in the spec ops community. At any rate Bill connected us with some of the guys that were deployed at the time as part of this particular ODA.

After some discussion we were asked if we could put together a special watch which we were glad to do. Only about 15 of these were made.

The art work was the creation of a family member of one of the team members and was originally to be used on a challenge coin and patch. They asked if we could use that on the watch. We felt it would be perfect for the caseback.

As I am sure most of you know typically a watch company will simply add a groups logo and maybe a minor bit of special engraving on the caseback of what is otherwise a stock model. We wanted to really raise the bar and produce a watch which had a totally unique dial, and caseback design. We also used a second hand which had a different color combo.

Doing well thanks. Hope all is well with you. We did sell them all. It's something we did when we first started up. In fact those were some of the first ones we built.
