Leaping out from the fire, it’s the MKII Cruxible

With nouveau vintage miltary watches, we certainly have all manner of choice.  There are those brands who take the merest whiff of inspiration from some Army or Air Force watch that they ran across, and there are brands with a long history of actually producing true MilSpec watches (ie, those worn in active duty), with a pedigree (and, often, price tag) to match.  Then we come to the brands that are doing something special – without a military contract history, but still producing something that is robust and true to the spirit of what inspires it.  Bill Yao over at MKII has been doing that for years, starting out as a watch modding company.  These days, it’s his own designs we take delight in, and the latest was just recently announced – the MKII Cruxible.
