Special Operations Sports Watch: No tests for you to past to wear this one

specialops-sportsBeing in a special operations unit would more often than not require you to be extremely fit – not to mention being a deadly, walking weapon. After all, isn’t this what most movies convey to us? All of those action movies where a single one man operation with a past who wants to break it all could not leave a particular situation of injustice alone, or perhaps are out for revenge – and they hit back – with a vengeance, killing an entire army’s worth of highly trained professionals as well. If you have delusions of grandeur of being in such a position after shows like The Equalizer, John Wick or the Taken series, the perhaps picking up the $299.95 Special Operations Sports Watch might help you feel better.

This special timepiece is extremely durable, being specially engineered to endure the demands of military field personnel while still serving the weekend warrior. It is made by a manufacturer of tactical military watches whose design collaborations have included U.S. Army Special Forces and Navy SEALs, where it comes encased in a solid block of 316L stainless steel with a rubber strap that endures rain, knocks, and sweat. The crown will screw down and locks with a double O-ring, delivering water resistance to 660′, while there is a scratch-resistant, anti-reflective crystal that protects its precise quartz movement. It sports luminous tritium-powered hands that deliver easy viewing of the brass 12- and 24-hour dial during an evening run. The one thing this sports watch won’t do is give you automatic deadly martial arts skills.
