Samuel Adams and Paul Revere would be proud of this one. The Minuteman MM01 PVD ($398+) would have looked good on their wrists, and it’s built by the CGA Company in the great state of Ohio. What’s more, a portion of the profits from sales will go to selected charities focusing on veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces, a worthy cause indeed.
All the usual black-ops wrist watch suspects are here: black PVD coating on a 43mm stainless steel case, a screw-down crown, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, hi-vis C3 Superluminova numerals and hands against a black dial, and Swiss quartz internals, all on a classic NATO strap. In fact, two straps are included — black and green — to blend with whatever camo scheme your mission calls for. Just like those quick-to-fight revolutionaries of 235 years ago, this watch is a no-nonsense, don’t-tread-on-me piece of kit.
The Minuteman won’t be available until October, but get your pre-order logged now and save $77. Come fall, the price goes to $475.
