In case you’re wondering, I believe this one will retail for around $400.
[Press Release] Today watchmaker Blancier introduced a unique and very special Military Chronograph watch for the American market. The Official Desert Watch has been given the code name Desert Wolf. Blancier developed this unique, sturdy watch for American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. This chronograph can be worn during deployments and it honors the struggle of America’s fighting forces overseas.
Willem Kamerman, the Dutch founder of Blancier and creator of this military watch, says, “I wanted to design something special for the men and women who are deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan under ISAF, because they deserve our support and respect.”
Iraq and Afghanistan as a source of inspiration
The image on Desert Wolf watch dial is of the mountainous region in that area, done in a camouflage style. Coordinates are printed between the number 12 and the center point. This chronograph, intended to show support for our troops, is an original and sturdy military watch that makes a perfect watch for soldiers – and supporters – at home or in country.
Ultra-thick double-sided non-reflecting sapphire glass
The design of the casing, in matte black steel, is a rounded square. It is particularly comfortable to wear for active outdoor use because the watch’s crown and chrono-pushers are placed at the top of the casing rather than in the usual place at the side. Underneath the Blancier Desert Wolf’s ultra-thick double-sided non-reflecting sapphire glass, the dial uses orange photoluminescent Super-LumiNova© numbers by the Swiss company TRITEC.
Blancier is also supporting the The Fisher House program with this project
Blancier greatly admires the The Fisher House program. That’s why Blancier is supporting the activities of this organization with a donation of USD 10.- for every Desert Wolf Chronograph ordered. http://www.fisherhouse.org/
