My Relic Sawyer Wristwatch looks like something issued by the Navy. It's sleek, grey, and purposeful -- like a battleship. The numerals on the bezel are darkened and the face is grey with white baton markers at hourly intervals. They seem purposeful and warlike. Even the sub-dials look like nautical instruments. This Relic watch looks so much like something off of a battleship that I recently took it to a battleship. I stopped by the U.S.S. North Carolina in Wilmington, North Carolina, over the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Battleship itself is moored just across the Cape Fear River from Wilmington, North Carolina. It's a lot of fun to find and view on google maps. For tips on finding the U.S.S. North Carolina and hunting for other battleships, check out my article:

While the Relic Sawyer isn't any kind of official Navy watch, it sure looks like it could be. However, it's far more affordable than any kind of mil-spec hardware that's designed for extreme conditions.

Of course, when you strap on this watch, you can't listen to some namby-pamby, snooty public radio, symphony. You have to listen to something truly awesome. I recommend the Victory at Sea
Plus, if you are going to wear a watch that looks like it belongs on a battleship, you should learn something about battleships and there is no better starting point than the best documentary series ever made:
