The Xezo Air Commando: A Bad Ass Watch for a Good Cause

Sometimes when I browse Amazon, I come across some really cool watches.  For example, to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the U.S. Air Force 1st Air Commando Group and promote a good cause Unite4:good, Xezo watches created the Air Commando Pilot Diver Automatic watch.

The 1st Air Commando Group fought against the Japanese in Burma.  They supported guerilla forces that operated far behind enemy lines.  Today, they have evolved into the modern Air Force's elite 1st Special Operations Wing.

This watch has the good looks that you'd expect of any commando watch.  It also has a Citizen Miyoto movement, a 45 millimeter diameter case that is 13 millimeters thick, and a 22 millimeter wide bracelet.  The Xezo Air Commando is water resistant to 200 meters.  The Air Commando watch can take anything you care to dish out.  The crystal is a "flat scratchproof Swiss-Made sapphire crystal glass with antireflection treatment."  Overall, it looks like a bad ass watch for a good cause.
