That about sums it up.MKTheVintageBloke wrote: ↑June 18th 2023, 4:09pmFrankly, that brand's sheer concept is baffling to me. They started by offering watches to special forces operators, claiming them to be worthwhile watches for active duty, which is pretty much BS. No SF operator would wear something that would identify him. Let alone wear something with unit insignia while on a mission.
Besides, the largest militaries have ditched mechanical watches a longer while ago in favour of the likes of G-Shock and Suunto - stuff that can be put through hell, and if by whatever odd chance it doesn't survive that hell, it's cheap to replace.
I suppose that with the Space Force, the difference is that it doesn't really have much to do yet, and it'll be probably decades before they actually come in handy. So, well, they can wear whatever they please, it won't see any action anytime soon. So, the watch is just a trinket for this particular unit, and the civilian version is Steve Carrell's TV show fan merch.
