REDWOOD TACTICAL V2

Post by koimaster » August 1st 2022, 4:07pm

In 1952, the French "Nageurs de combat" (combat divers) unit was created by the French military as an elite team of tactical divers. Their missions included underwater intelligence, sabotage, demolition and covert attacks in enemy seaports. At the time, no watch was specifically designed for underwater combat. Commanding officer Maloubier of the French navy approached Blancpain to develop a watch built for the extreme conditions faced by his men. Our inspiration for the Tactical v2 is the first military diver’s watch ever made for underwater commandos. Even though most of us will never find ourselves sabotaging enemy vessels, it is impressive to know the Tactical v2 could handle the challenge with ease all the while proudly displaying its strong historical background.

I like the understated, if maybe a bit too generic, design. Bezel, dial, hands; all a bit lacking in style. And for the umpteenth bajillionth time, we don't care about your backstory.

But the quality/price ratio is excellent. One couldn't go wrong purchasing one for rough outdoor work or for a friend or relative that needs a watch but has no sense of style other than blue jeans and a t-shirt. (I'm not sure I'm far off that mark.)
