Spyderco Watch???

Postby Candyman » Sat Jul 09, 2016 9:47 pm

Just throwing it out there. I'm sure this has been talked about before but wouldnt it be great to have a Spyderco watch. I could even imagine a small pull out Spyderco blade similar to an arrowhead that slides out from inside the watch. What do you all think?

Funny you mentioned this, I had actually designed one a few years back. I should have an image of it someplace...it used hands that looked like little knives that had small thumb holes in them. Face had a carbon fiber back with red numbers and a red spider for the number 12. I'll find it...

For a watch to be of the same quality as their knives, it would cost more then most here would spend .

That would be interesting and a pocket watch version (quartz w/battery) would be great, especially if they got the tritium right and it actually glowed.

Just use one as a sundial- there you go :)

I'm sure Spyderco could slap their logo on someone else's watch. That may not be a bad idea. I'd like more non-knife products from them (shirts, etc).

I doubt it's a very lucrative business, selling watches to Spyderco fans.

How about a do it all multi blade slip-it with a lcd panel
( watch ) built into one of the handle scales ... on second thought that sounds pretty lame. I'm on board with the t-shirt idea tho, design one that looks like the box.

I might be interested if it were something like a bug logo on the face of an already established watch brand/model.

Actually, this is doable but the watch I have in mind wouldn't be too cheap...not crazy expensive as watch prices go but probably close to $400. GWS is the parent company that makes Tracer watches, I have their G10 Pro Diver watch (the G10 is just coincidence, it has no actual G10 in it). It's a very nice watch used by the British military, has a 10 year battery, 200m waterproof with screw down crown, screw in strap bars and tritium lume. I know of at least one website that commissioned a watch from them with their logo and I've seen many other military logos on them.

Here's the watch..

I like the idea of a Spyderco-themed watch. USN (Usual Suspect Network) created their own unique watch some time ago using Lum Tec watches. Like David mentioned however, they are fairly costly (around $420 each). Here's a link to what the USN models look like: http://www.usualsuspect.net/forums/show ... -see-these!!

If nothing else, I'd be quite happy to see a Spyderco-ized G-Shock by Casio. Sal and Eric both seem to like the G-Shocks too. Maybe a Spyderco collab with Casio could be arranged? I dunno, but I'd sure has h-e-double-hockey-stick buy one!

Lum Tec is one of the boutique makers I was thinking of. I have one of their watches, which i seldom wear anyone , but respect the band . Most of their watches have moved up well above the $420 USN price, Im a member there as well btw.

G Shocks tend to be very "busy" one might get a spyder on it or perhaps the whole name , not sure if anything could be done or seen on the face .

I'd want a nice open face with knife hands, like Omega uses sword hands.

There is a guy in Honk Kong who does nothing but customize Seiko watches, mostly dive watches. I have one of his SEIKO SKX007 with sword hands, after market face, after market bezel . This is an classic automatic dive watch, price of watch and all the work? $200 .

Google Seiko skx007 it's a classic bomb proof automatic .

Seriously, how cool would it be if Spyderco collaborated with Casio to make a special edition G Shock watch!!
