BCM Releases… A Watch?

I understand T-Shirts, hats, and small (and inexpensive) swag, but this one came out of left field. Bravo Company USA has announced the release of a watch, coined the “BCM Mk15 Tritium Watch”. Its truly “tacticool” using carbon fiber, tritium, and other fun materials.

As one might expect from Bravo Company, the watch is not inexpensive, clocking in (see what I did there?) at $595. For true BCM fanboys, its a veritable bargain to satisfy their daily tactical needs. I mean, how can it get more tactical than a tactical watch?*

*I am guilty of this one, as I picked up a Smith & Bradley 1st Edition Ambush because it had a front sight post built into the minute and hour hands. Its a Watch I have enjoyed.

Makes we wonder what non firearms component BCM will attach the brand to next. Shoes? Earrings?

    When I was in the Army I had a Marathon general purpose tritium watch w/date. I think the DOD gets them for $60ish, but they are turned in and I believe they destroy them.
    Post service I bought this same watch from Topspecus for around $120 on sale.(Right now its $180)
    The band sucked then and now, so a quick trip to Brunton leather got me enough materials to make a band that isn't so bad. Used buffalo leather and removable soft deerskin.
    I looked at a lot of tritium watches and I love tritium, I have dozens of tritium tubes in all sorts of sizes and colors that I use here and there for projects. Most Tritium watched I looked at, had bezels the size of a pancake, or they were prohibitively expensive. Marathon watches are a very good bang for the buck. Certainly not as shiny as BCM's new watch, but both have their place.
    Some stuff BCM makes is nice, I'm sure this watch will be nice, but for me, I just needed a tritium watch that is rugged, and won't break my piggybank.

    Do you OPERATE for a living? Then chances are you can't afford this watch.
