American military secret for sale

Once used exclusively by the United States’ most celebrated covert operators, the 21st-century technology inside the Stauer Recon Tritium Watch has been cleared for civilian service!

Honestly, we weren’t shopping for top secret military hardware. But the phone call sounded promising. Our mystery man wanted to meet immediately. He was leaving the country in four hours. There was no telling if he would be coming back. It was now or never. So we agreed on a swap.

We didn’t meet in an underground parking garage. There was nothing cloak and dagger about it. We did our business in broad daylight. Out in the open for the whole world to see. Two men. One watch. And a firm handshake to seal the deal. Do I regret what we did? Not for one second.

Once you get a closer look at the Stauer Recon Tritium Watch, you’ll understand why. Inspired by the same watches used by the country’s most elite fighting forces, the tough-as-nails Stauer Recon is a revelation in black and white. It’s powered by a precision Swiss quartz movement and lit by the modern miracle of GTLS technology. Originally designed in Switzerland, GTLS (gaseous tritium light source) technology was almost exclusively used in advanced U.S. military equipment and watches for years, making it almost impossible to find for civilian use. And now, even though it’s more available, you rarely find quality for under $300. Only Stauer can bring you a tritium watch for this price without compromising a millimeter on the integrity of the timepiece.

The easy-to-read white-on-black dial also features military time, a date window at the 3 o’clock position and a rotating bezel (with a light source at the 12 o’clock spot). The lightweight polycarbonate case (a nearly unbreakable acrylic used in bulletproof glass) secures with a textured black silicone wrist band and is water-resistant to 10 ATMs. Stylish in the daylight. Always lit in utter darkness. The best kept secret of military timekeeping is out! Fits wrists 7¼"–9¼".

Outstanding

This is an outstanding watch. I fly professionally and privately. The watch is a critical tool for me and especially at night. It is absolutely the brightest glowing watch I own. Well worth the dollars.
