First Tactical has recently announced its line of watches. After years of planning and research the company has crafted watches that are durable enough to stand up to the toughest jobs and environments, yet sophisticated enough in styling to wear off-duty.
Arriving first is the CANYON DIGITAL Compass (pictured below) which features include a Digital Second Hand, a digital compass function, a ruler on the back of the band, and a mute option for tactical use.
After the launch it will be joined by the RIDGELINE Carbon Field Watch and the FATHOM Stainless Steel Dive Watch, each featuring a precise jewel-set logo, oversized display, interchangeable bands, and more.
