H.R.T. Tactical Sniper Watch

Posted on 28 February 2007 by John Biggs


I’m not quite sure what’s going on here, but this watch helps you take out folks at 1000 meters, which is a great help to those in that line of work. Clearly, there is more to this than I can fathom, but it allows you to enter various pieces of shooting data in order to line up and blow away just about anyone.

Calculate point of impact by inputting critical variables that determine elevation and wind adjustments. Works on all MILDOT, TMOA, SMOA and clicking rifle scopes. Punch in data about the ammunition you are shooting and the conditions you are shooting in and the watch will display the appropriate hold over for a sure hit… It’s that simple. This enhances a shooter’s confidence to engage targets out to 1,000 meters with “whenever/wherever” portability. Data is easy to enter – even through gloves – with the most critical information arranged for fast change and access. Accuracy on your wrist!

Oakley – Ahem – In the Field

Posted on 28 February 2007 by John Biggs

Reader Edward send along this great photo from C4ISR Journal, a warfare magazine aimed at execs. It seems the Oakley Saddleback is the watch to have if you’re staring down a target at 2 miles. Amazingly good PR for Oakley, I guess.

Eos Entourage Watch

Posted on 26 February 2007 by John Biggs

draft_1640_big.jpgI’m not in love with this thing, but if you like Entourage and watches, then go ahead and pick this up. I can’t imagine it’s much more than $500 and if it is then someone is paying too much for a watch.

In fact, the only telltale details that link it to the show are the star design on the face and an engraved quote on the back of the case: “A lifestyle is a terrible thing to waste.” The handsome watch features a steel case and screw-in black face plate, Japanese movement, and water-resistance to 50 meters. A nice perk: the watch was made in a limited edition of 300 pieces.

Watch Joke… Ahem…

Posted on 23 February 2007 by John Biggs


An Italian parks his brand new BMW in front of the office,
just down the street from Casa Napoli, to show it off to his bros. As he’s getting out of the car, a truck comes speeding along close to the curb and takes off the door before speeding away. More than a little distraught, the

Italian grabs his cell and calls the police. Five minutes
later, the police arrive . Before the policeman has a chance to ask any questions, the Italian starts screaming hysterically:
“My BMW, my beautiful black BMW is ruined !!!! No matter how long at the body shop it’ll never be the same again!”
After the Italian finally finishes his rant, the policeman
shakes his head in disgust: “I can’t believe how materialistic you bloody Italians are,” he says.”You guys are so focused on your possessions that you don’t notice anything else in your life.” “How can you say such a
thing at a time like this?” snaps the Italian. The policeman replies, “Didn’t you realize that your right
arm was torn off when the truck hit you.” ?

Rolex Reborn

Posted on 21 February 2007 by John Biggs


An AMAZING look at restoring an old Rolex.

Alright, further examination of the watch confirms the above – there’s really nothing wrong with the exterior of the watch that a good cleaning and polishing won’t fix. There’s no rust or major physical trauma. And it looks like the watch hasn’t been polished much before, which is a good thing – some watches of this age have been over polished. So with the cursory inspection complete, it’s now time to begin disassembling the watch for cleaning and further inspection. The first order of business is to remove the bracelet and check between the lugs.
