This month it is exactly two years since the first Phalanx prototypes went into intensive testing. To mark this milestone and commemorate Armed Forces Day 2022, we are releasing a special Phalanx Tactical Pack which includes the Phalanx watch itself on a Tropical Rubber strap with a new matching Phalanx buckle, an extra branded Military Nylon strap in one of our bespoke military colours, flat dark earth or green, and within the high impact polymer case you will find a new smartly designed Phalanx multi-tool.
This little gem of an item has tools and gadgets packed into every spare millimetre of space, including a bottle opener, protractor, screw-drivers, box cutter, hex wrenches, and cable bender. To allow for secure daily carry there is no blade. The Phalanx multi-tool is credit-card sized and will immediately become an EDC item!
The principal objective of Project Phalanx was to create a watch that is not a gimmick, but a platform with operational viability which would equally appeal to a contemporary watch.
The Geckota Sierra Zero One Phalanx watch is a completely bespoke 300m dive timepiece, with two considered variations: A subdued Satin case variant called the INTELLIGENCE and a PVD black, Codename: BLACKOUT. Each one reflects different aspects of the Phalanx design, with numerous specially made Phalanx watch straps available.
All surfaces of the Phalanx which could cause reflection have been dulled and in their place. A signature suppressed approach has been adopted, including the dial, hands, and case. A black PVD hostile environment version typifies this philosophy. Decimal time, still the purview of Special Operations and Pilots is additionally represented on the outer dial of the watch.
Dual blue and green luminescence colours have been used with the bezel markers to differentiate from the dial during night use. The offset crown at the 4 o'clock position ensures the utmost comfort when involved in outdoor activities such as diving, climbing or professional operational use such as weapon handling. A 20-minute bezel timer brings symmetry to the offset crown.
The Phalanx is powered by the venerable ETA 2824-2 movement which has 25 jewels, shock protection, a power reserve of 38 hours and operates at 28,800 vph. Each watch comes with a uniquely engraved case back and individual serial numbers with SF prefix.
The Phalanx was born from the combined minds of a senior watch designer and someone who has spent most of their life surrounded by Special Operations units. It was a perfect storm of creativity, and the result is one of the best Spec Ops watches available today.Secure your Phalanx Tactical Pack now for the specially discounted price of £599 (was £699) and join the elite.
