For those who are familiar with the SANS-13 watch from S&B™ Watches (formerly Smith & Bradley, Ltd.), you’ll be pleased to know that the next evolution of this brilliantly designed watch has finally arrived. And, for those who are not familiar with the brand, read on. It’s time you find out what you’ve been missing.
Since its release in 2013, the SANS-13 Tactical Sport Watch has become a highly sought-after wristwatch, commonly adorned by brave souls serving our communities as police officers and first responders. That’s because the watch was primarily designed for the rigors of everyday duty and the harsh urban environments that these professions often encounter. A seventeen-year police veteran turned watchmaker, Jerommie Smith conducted hundreds of field interviews while designing this law enforcement inspired watch. Now, with more than 5,000 watches sold, he continues to make it even better.
One of the key features of the SANS-13 is its afterglow. You see, many watches use tritium and often attempt to make their watches glow very bright in the dark, but this is not always the best application for tactical scenarios. When you walk into a room or a low light situation, you don’t necessarily want to compromise your position with overbearing lume. The SANS-13 utilizes C3 Superlume on the hands and dial to emit a low-level light and fulfill the motto “Only you should see your watch!”
Proudly designed and built in the USA, the all-new SANS-13 watch has made some great improvements since its initial version. Very reasonably priced at just $395, this is clearly where tactical, sport, and luxury intersect. Here’s a list of what the SANS-13 Tactical Sport Watch has to offer.
- Top-shelf Swiss quartz movement manufactured by world-renowned maker ETA
- 42x12mm 316L stainless steel case with 22mm lugs and PVD coating
- C3 Super-LumiNova paint infused hands and dial markers
- Anti-reflective sapphire crystal
- Screw-down, double O-ring seal, and 7mm crown
- 120-click, one-directional rotating bezel
- High-strength push bars to connect the strap
- Water resistant to 300 meters
- Two-year warranty
In addition to these great features and components, the watch is available with black, white, and orange dials in a brushed stainless or black anodized case.
The SANS-13 has all the makings to of a military and law enforcement favorite. It has a truly functional design and is engineered specifically for patrol and tactical applications. It’s certainly a worthy piece of EDC gear, very strong and durable. If you’re looking to enhance your tactical wardrobe or are simply interested in wearing a superb wristwatch at a very affordable price, we strongly suggest you consider the S&B™ Tactical Sport Watch.
