SWAE Watches Introduces, THE VETERAN: A Watch Made From American Strength
The Veteran was created with the strength of America with bands made from military issued Battle Dress Uniforms (BDU) donated by heroes who served this great country.
This spring, SWAE Watches introduces our newest and most important product, THE VETERAN. Manufactured for extreme durability, this timepiece was designed and completed in the United States of America. This matte black 20atm water resistant watch is constructed of lightweight titanium alloy, contrasting green hands and green accents on the face, featuring Swiss Ronda 5050 Quartz chronograph movement. It’s titanium alloy crown, back case, and buttons pay homage to military ruggedness. This one of a kind watch boasts a scratch resistant sapphire crystal, one of the hardest substances on earth.
Now let’s talk about the bands for this watch…
The SWAE team brainstormed for weeks for the best possible ways to honor our Military personnel; while also giving the American public something of tangible value to wear with pride. We believe we have achieved both goals masterfully!
We have encountered many former Military personnel (warriors in our opinion), who have amazing stories and have learned to cope with reality of post military life and continue on with their lives in a harmonious manner. There are many who utilizes action sports such as surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding or MMA as an outlet for healing. SWAE is an action sports/urban lifestyle company that embraces all athletes who strive to be the best. We’re doing this for them!
In the spring of 2014, a buddy of ours returned from a tour in Afghanistan where he shared stories of courage he had witnessed and sacrifices made on the field of Battle. Being totally oblivious as to what goes on out there, there’s no way we could even imagine what our courageous Military Personnel will/have experienced emotionally and physically during combat; let alone the aftermath that is sometimes suffered. After battle, many of our heroes come back with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), wounds, and other unfortunate disabilities. Whether its PTSD or physical wounds, many heroes return home and feel isolated unable to cope with the events that occurred. There’s no worse feeling than the feeling of being alone… We want to assure them that they aren’t! The stories we’ve heard bring a range of emotion – from uplifting happiness to sobering sadness, but the one feeling that was undeniable and most prominent for us, was the feeling of overwhelming PRIDE! We at SWAE are Prideful of our unparalleled Military personnel; we wanted to find a way to honor the very people that put life and limb on the line to protect the very freedom we cherish. THE VETERAN watch is our humble way of doing that! In an effort to support our Military personnel, we will provide charitable contribution to the “Wounded Warrior Project” [www.woundedwarriorproject.org]
Please join us in owning a piece of American History.
