We take great pride in the fact that each of these watches is proudly hand assembled, tuned, and tested in the U.S.A. by a highly skilled American watchmaker.
We would like to point out a few aspects of this watch. The hands represent swords. Rather than use off the shelf catalog hands like most brands do. We decided to create, and have tooling made for what we feel is a more unique and striking hand design. 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 used superluminova on the applied markers and hands.
For this watch we decided to use a double domed sapphire crystal which is more resistant to impacts and better dissipates the force of an impact compare to a flat sapphire crystal.
The reason we chose a double domed rather than a domed is this. A domed crystal distorts the dial etc especially when viewing at an angle. A double domed is convex on the outside and concave on the inside. Much like a lens on a pair of eyeglasses. The double domed crystal is also supposed to be more resistant to impacts than a domed crystal.
