Dedicated to a Life of Service.

For nearly twenty years Eddie Gallagher served as a Navy Corpsman, Marine Scout Sniper and Navy SEAL.

Eight overseas combat deployments, two Bronze Stars and one Navy Achievement Medal, both with “V” for Valor.

On his last combat deployment to Iraq in 2017 he led a platoon to successfully defeat ISIS in Mosul.

For his performance and leadership he was highly commended and was named the #1 Navy SEAL Chief, nominated for a Silver Star, and slated for promotion to Senior Chief.
He was then awarded a coveted training billet for his ‘twilight tour’ as a SEAL, where in his last years in the SEAL teams he would bestow his experience and knowledge to future SEAL team members as they prepared to deploy. His selfless sacrifice and dedication to God and Country sets Mr. Gallagher apart and carries with it the principles that define America.

44mm tactical

The Tactical watch is 44mm case (49mm with the crown). The case thickness is 16.50mm. From lug to lug is 54mm. And the strap width is 23mm. It is heavy and beefy, and is constructed of 316L surgical grade stainless steel. It uses scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass, and a screw-down crown & caseback to offer a water depth rating of 300 meters (1,000 feet).

The case comes in 4 variations: stainless / pvd-black / stainless with black / black with stainless. The watch comes mounted on a black rubber strap or brown leather strap. If you would prefer a different color strap, or a carbon fiber strap, we'll do what we can do accommodate you.

Tactical Movement

The watch is powered by Swiss Ronda 715li HC Quartz (battery powered) movement. The battery should last about 10 years and then simply send it in for a quick battery swap. An overhaul service should be done every few years to remove the years of scratches and marks your timepiece received along the journey.

Automatic Upgrade:
You can upgrade your timepiece to the Swiss ETA 2824-2 Automatic mechanical (self winding) movement, with 25 jewels for $385. This is the same style of movement as found in Rolex, Omega, Breitling. The automatic movement offers a few additional hand styles, including the Mercedes / Sword / Modern / Ploprof hands (we will send you visuals of each style when we're creating your mock-up).

An Automatic is another term for “self-winding”, meaning the watch winds itself using a rotor weight inside the timepiece which oscillates to apply tension on the mainspring of the movement through the random motion of the watch owner’s arm. This movement does not require a battery, but does require manual winding every few days using the crown to fully “charge the mainspring” and increase the timepiece’s accuracy because it’s running at full power. You should send your watch in for routine service every few years, to check and replace gaskets - just like your precision firearms, which you routinely clean and oil, a mechanical timepiece requires this care as well.

42mm Classic

The Classic watch is a 42mm case (46mm with the crown). The case thickness is 14mm. From lug to lug is 50mm. And the strap width is 22mm. The watch is water depth rated is 300 meters (1,000 feet). The case is 316L surgical grade stainless steel. The glass is sapphire crystal. The bezel is a uni-directional bezel. The crown and caseback are screwed down, ensuring the depth rating.

The case comes in 2 variations: stainless / dlc-black. The watch is mounted on a black leather strap with white stitching and Pre-V buckle. We offer a solid metal bracelet as optional upgrade.

Overview

A Quartz movement is powered by the battery, and will run for approximately 10 years (+/-). If your watch stops running, please contact us to get the battery swapped. (We have seen outside shops often damage the movement when extracting the battery). Email us and we'll get it taken care of quickly for you.

Usage Guide

QUARTZ MOVEMENT INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Unscrew the Crown [counter clockwise].
2. To Set the Date:
Gently Pull the Crown into "First Position". Then turn the date forward slowly till you reach your desired date.
3. To Set the Time:
Gently Pull the Crown into "Second Position". Then turn the crown, advancing the hands forward, not backward, to your desired time.

AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Unscrew the Crown [counter clockwise]
2. To Wind the Watch:
Gently turn the Crown clockwise [feel the tension of the mainspring] 40-50 complete turns.
(this movement can not be over-wound as it has an escapement).
3. To Set the Date:
Gently Pull the Crown into "First Position". Then turn the date forward slowly till you reach your desired date.
4. To Set the Time:
Gently Pull the Crown into "Second Position". Then turn the crown, advancing the hands forward, not backward, to your desired time.
(because the mechanical movement uses a series go metal discs and gears to move in precision balance to set and tell the time, it is advised to only set the time forward - not back)

RE-SECURE THE CROWN:
When you are finished setting the time and date and winding the movement, it is imperative that you re-secure the crown (the thing keeping the world out of your watch).


While applying inward pressure, gently turn the Crown clockwise, securing it on the threading until it is tightly closed. This ensures your watch is water-sealed.

It is NOT advised that you use your mechanical timepiece in the hot tub, sauna, shower, jacuzzi or other steam generating environments [read full article].

Do's & Don'ts

Do's:
Wind your watch gently daily.

Don'ts:
Do not use pliers to try to open your crown.
Do not use your watch as a hammer to hang a frame.
