1 - STAINLESS, Current Models
The Minuteman Jedburgh may sound like an unusual name. This excerpt is from the CIA’s website.
“Parachuting behind enemy lines in the cover of night, the Office of Strategic Services’ (OSS) elite Jedburgh teams were special operations paratroopers sent into Nazi-occupied France, Belgium, and the Netherlands to coordinate airdrops of arms and supplies, guide local partisans on hit-and-run attacks and sabotage, and assist the advancing Allied armies to defeat the Third Reich.”
We would like to point out a few aspects of this design. The hands represent swords. Rather than go with typical sword style hands we wanted some that were a bit more unique and we feel these are. It was quite challenging to come up with a design that would allow us to position the date in such a way that it falls into line with the applied hour markers. In the end to make that happen we had to add the outer ring to the dial which then shifted the rest of the elements inboard. Speaking of the applied markers. The shape of those are meant to represent shields. We will be using superluminova on the applied markers and hands. The glow of the markers should be pretty much equal to the glow of the hands. This design is the culmination of months of design and feedback from watch enthusiasts from around the world.
