    Looks awesome, but too expensive. It is only a watch, afterall.

    I posted about this a few weeks ago. The features on this thing are amazing. I'd get one, but a bit pricy for me. Cool watch though.

    Nice, but If I had $400+ I would pick up another LE lightsaber.

    You know I liked this Watch so much I just bought one myself. :lol

    I have been wearing a Rolex Submariner for years and I figure it is time for a change.

    Thanks for starting this thread LewisD

    And I thought paying $200 for my Red Monkey Design watch was expensive. Nice watch that I'd buy if I had the spare cash.

    Honestly...I'm not sure yet. Those that have the watch say that it is heavy compared to most watches. If it wears well, then I'll be my new watch. If not, it will still make a cool prop piece.

    The parent company's official site is Special Ops Watch . The 24 fan club doesn't mention the watch's model name, but it is the Black Hawk w/ Ballistic strap.

    Each watch is individually numbered also... :)

    Man I really love the show and now I really want this watch. No cash though. That's the problem with these forums, always showing me things that I can't afford.

    This is a big watch at 45mm * 13mm, like the size of a Panerai.

    I think it fits nicely with a airsoft HK USP compact (I think that is what Jack is using but correct me if I am wrong) in the "24" collection section. :D

    The more I look at this watch, the more I want it. I just can't help it. I read about it a bit more and here's what I learned:

    -Previously worn only by members of the U.S. Secret Service, U.S. Navy Seals, U.S. Air Force Pilots, U.S. Delta Force, U.S. Army Rangers, U.S. Special Forces, Swat Teams, FBI Agents, DEA Agents, Police Officers, SAS, Tactical Units and Special Forces Units worldwide.

    -The MTM BlackHawk Watch also employs the unique Special Ops recharging system. There is no need to ever replace the batteries, risking the watch integrity, with Special Ops Watches. Just place the MTM Blackhawk on the specially design recharging pod overnight and it will be fully charged in the morning. The long lasting battery technology means the charge lasts for a month under normal usage.

    -The Internal Lighting Mode uses a triple bulb blue diffused light for discreet time keeping in covert operations. The External Lighting Mode uses an extremely powerful triple bulb system emitting a bright orange light. They can be seen for over one mile and it has been designed to be used as both a distress signal in emergency situations and a map reading tool in zero light conditions. The External Lights have to be seen to be believed.


    Sounds too cool.

    It is a nice watch and I think a pretty good deal for the Money.

    It is made from a single bar of steel and the face is carbon-fiber.

    The 3 year warranty sealed the deal for me.

    I just hope it goes as well with my Magnum Team Ring as my Rolex did.

    I've also read that not only can this watch's external light mode be used like a flashlight to read maps, it can also be used in self defense as it will temporarily stun an enemy's eyesight in close range.

    Not to mention this watch can survive an EMP. :p

    I can't wait for this to arrive. I'll try to post pics...

    I have the poor mans replica version. It's a very nice watch put out by Dakota Watch company. It's affordable, and the lights are every bit as bright. They claim it needs an 8 hour charge every month, but so far it's been over 2-1/2 months on one charge. I am not promoting or trying to sell the watch, just sharing what I have. I am planning on changing the band soon.

    I would get this watch if it wasn't for the cheesy Special Ops on the face. If they made one with a blank face like a Yao watch, I'd be all over it. I highly doubt the gov would issue a watch with Special Ops on it....not real covert if you ask me.

    True...I'm sure the watches issued by the US gov would not have that text on the face. But, the watch used on the 24 production also says "special ops"...

    Just recieved my watch today. First impression out of the box was how light it actually is. My Seiko watch is heavier...Velcro strap is really nice...those with bigger wrists need not worry :) The strap feels wonderful after wearing a metal band for 10 years...Lighting modes are great, and although I thought the external light would be brighter than what it is, it is great for reading things in the dark. The charger is really cool. The strap covers up the back of the watch which I thought would be a problem for charging, but the electromagnetic charger works like a charm - you only need to sit the watch on the stand and it will charge, even with the strap blocking the metal watch back...

    Needless to say, this is my new watch for many many years. It's pretty sad that my house is so jam packed with props that I have to start wearing them.. :p

    My thoughts 100% hence the reason I don't own it. Makes it cheesy and cheap in my opinion.


    EDIT: But I still think it is a very nice watch. Would probably get it if I could get it without the "SO" written on it.

    I gave in and actually purchased this. I'm quite pleased, to say the least. I really like the design and it;s really comforable. Plus it's sure to turn heads.

    The orange lights aren't blindingly bright as I thought they would be, but it was annoying having them pointed in my eyes. The blue lights are really weak and seem like they're only meant for viewing the watch (even though it's glow in the dark [???]).

    I really like the charger. I have no idea how it works, but it's really unique and very high-tech spy-ish. Speaking of which, do the lights stop blinking when the watch has a complete charge or do they always blink?


    -edit: read the instructions (ugh.) and found out that the lights WILL stop blinking, but the initial charge is 8 hours.
