In Admiral Bill McRaven’s famous commencement speech to the 2014 graduating class of The University of Texas, he outlines the “ship attack mission,” where a pair of SEALs-in-training are dropped off about two miles from a target ship, in the middle of the night, with nothing but a depth gauge and a compass. They’re required to swim to the ship and simulate placing explosives on the target and then swimming back, undetected, to safety. It’s exactly the sort of scenario that this watch conjures up. Of course, it wouldn’t actually be used during SEAL training, but very few tool watches are used in the proper environment by the average enthusiast anyway, so why not take the design to the extreme? Go all the way or don’t even start.
