The watch case is constructed in 316L surgical-grade stainless steel with scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass, and is water depth rated to 300 meters / 1,000 feet.

We offer an upgrade to a DLC-black watch case ($185).

DIAL:
The dial features the Parachute and Combatant Diver Qualified patch @12 and Reconnaissance Foundation patch @6 produced in metallic gold.

If you would like to include your callsign on the dial, use the drop-down menu to select yes and enter it in the text field.

CASEBACK:
There are two options for caseback design; the first option is a  stock design which is the Reconnaissance Creed, and the second option is a custom design tailored to you, featuring your graphics / patches / deployments / flight hours, etc. After your order is placed, we will reach out to create the caseback with you, and will send as many mock-up revisions as needed until the design is perfect. The custom caseback upgrade is $200.

WATCH STRAP:
The watch comes mounted on a black leather strap, but if you would prefer a carbon fiber or rubber strap, let us know. The stitching color on the leather strap is white, but we can try to source green stitching if you prefer.

We offer an upgrade to a solid metal bracelet with screws, and solid end-pieces; bracelet upgrade is $285.

MOVEMENT:
The movement is the engine that powers your watch. The watch comes with a Swiss Quartz (battery) movement, and we offer an upgrade to the Swiss ETA 2824-2 Automatic movement  for $385.

The automatic movement is the type you’d find in Rolex, Omega, Breitling and has a power reserve of approx 40 hours. The battery movement runs approx 2-3 years, then requires a simple battery swap. If you have questions about the movements, please send us a quick email (contact@swisspl.com)

PRODUCTION TIME:
These watches are handcrafted and made-to-order; the customized parts are produced in-house, tailored to you. Average production time is between 6-8 weeks, we offer rush service if required.

You can choose from our stock caseback, which features our logo, or we can design a custom caseback for you for $200, which features your name / rank / callsign, squadron patches / unit emblems, planes / helicopters, or whatever you would like on it.

Here are some recent projects.



Your SwissPL watch is assembled and tested when ordered, and then gets packaged for shipping with the utmost of care in each detail.

The watch is secured inside a heat-sealed enclosure bag, so your hands are the first to touch your new watch.

Your watch will be sent with insured service, with tracking, which requires a signature for delivery.

A Beautiful Piece of Art

Alldaron at SwissPL Watch Company worked with me to create the most beautiful art piece/ custom watch for my husband. He answered all my questions over a 2 month period. He created multiple schematics to help me make the best decision. Ultimately, my husband said the watch created specifically for him was the most amazing gift he’s ever received! He said he wouldn’t have done anything different had he created it himself. I also love that 25% of the proceeds went to the Marine Reconnaissance Foundation! This company is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Tell Your Story

Each timepiece is made to order, designed to reflect your milestones.

METAL BRACELET

The 22mm metal bracelet for the 42mm Classic watch is comprised of solid links and is secured to the watch with solid end-pieces. The links use screws, not pins, and the buckle is equipped with a safety clasp.

WATER DEPTH RATING

The Classic watch features a screw-down crown and caseback which seals the watch and enables a water depth rating of 300 meters (1,000 feet) and secures the inside of the watch from the elements.

MOVEMENT / ENGINE

The movement driving your timepiece is a Swiss engine. Power your watch with your choice of quartz-analog battery movement, included in base price, or upgrade to the automatic self-winding mechanical movement with 25 jewels (shown here).

CASE MATERIAL

The 316L steel material is ideally resistant to environmental corrosion and provides an optimum hypoallergenic function for contact with your skin. So regardless if you have a desk job, are engaged in covert spec-ops missions, or you’re just an avid sportsman, your timepiece will survive whatever you throw at it.

DIAL FABRICATION

The dial fabrication is done in-house; produced either in a metallic gold application, or in color using a traditional manual Swiss dial printing machine building up one color at a time to create the design. Your watch is handcrafted and made-to-order.

BEZEL RING

The watch uses a uni-directional bezel turning system with 4 bezel ring colors to choose from: black, blue, red and green.

Honor Your Journey

Your military career spans a lifetime of dedication and sacrifice, inherited from the men that came before, and passed on to those that follow. A proud tradition built on commitment and triumph, on honor and support.

This timepiece is a blend of style and function to encapsulate your heritage, and the milestones you achieved along the way.
