Since it’s July, and the 4th is just around the corner, we thought it would be great if we could get an American watch in the mix. Thing of it is, there aren’t a lot of American watch manufacturers these days, especially ones who could turn something around for us at short notice. Then, we remembered our pals over at Smith & Bradley.
We thought perhaps we could get them to through some swag in for the giveaway, but they went a step further, and offered up a brand-new Sans-13 watches (in Pelican case) for the contest . And, given that this is a watch that’s on the wrists of active duty military and police personnel, it seemed like a fitting watch for the giveaway.
It’s pretty easy to throw your hat in the ring for the Smith & Bradley Sans-13 giveaway – just go ahead and follow those steps in the widget below, and good luck! Then, while you’re waiting, feel free to check out my hands-on review of the Sans-13 over on ABTW.
Our special thanks to Smith & Bradley stepping in at the last minute to sponsor the giveaway!

That campaign was ultimately successful, and they’ve turned their attention in a new campaign from a quartz tactical watch to an automatic diver. Will the Atlantis project sink like the mythical city? I don’t think so, but read on to see what the watch is all about. Continue Reading

Earlier this year, we brought you word (here) of the Sans-13, the first crowd-funded watch from Smith & Bradley (you can see my hands-on review of it right here). When I met with the company, they had said they were planning an automatic for the future. Well, that future has arrived, and Matt Himmelstein is giving us his thoughts on their recently-launched Kickstarter campaign.
