MTM Special Ops Origins
After years of manufacturing watches, the freelance ex-military designers that still had friends in the service inquired with them as to the perfect watch for the field. And in the early 2000s, MTM Special Ops Watch was launched.
Over the course of nearly three decades, several former military agents that became horologists developed their craft through producing tactical watches for numerous private companies. But with the expertise this team developed, they decided to dedicate their professional careers to developing the quintessential field watches for their peers still serving their country. The final result was the Black Hawk watch—a timepiece with both an internal and external light for emergency signaling and functional covert viewing.
After the Black Hawk became the first model of the newly formed MTM Special Ops Watch company, the demand for more specialized wrist instruments increased among military circles. But instead of creating models with standard chronographs and alarms, MTM went the extra step. It released models that could detect amounts of radiation and chart exposure levels. The newly formed watch brand launched a watch with built in UV technology to expose traces of blood that are invisible to the naked eye.
Where MTM Special Ops Is Today
Within not only the United States’ military but numerous other first-world countries’ military factions as well, MTM Special Ops is the clear leader in tactical watches, and it is not remotely close. Soldiers, sailors, marines and pilots alike never go into the field or take on a new mission without their MTM watch of choice securely fastened to their wrist. Because of the evolving designs of each new model, even high fashion executives have come to appreciate and attempted to replicate the original MTM Special Ops watches as well. So while these rough-and-tumble watches are still more likely to be found on wrists inside a tank, walking through a riverbed or flying behind enemy lines, the retired soldier will often wear them wherever he goes. And many non-military personnel have also found these extremely functional in the office, on the weekend or out on a hunt for fish or fowl.
Celebrities have also taken notice of the MTM Special Ops brand, too. Actor Kellan Lutz of Twilight fame is a huge fan. And Josh Stewart—who played the right hand man of Tom Hardy’s Bane in The Dark Knight Rises—was actually such a supporter of the brand; he wore a Black Patriot in the film. New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford and Grammy-award winning musician and producer AKON also have been spotted out in public sporting their MTM Special Ops watches. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kiefer Sutherland and Josh Duhamel are on the lengthy list of celebrity MTM-wearers as well.
