WBOTD 9.9.12: MTM Special Ops

Post by mrneddles » Sun Sep 09, 2012 3:14 am

I defer to all the military folks on this board as to whether these watches fit the marketing bill they claim. This watch is worn by the character Jason Stackhouse on HBO's "True Blood" and in the Transformers movie, giving the brand some press.

MTM, manufacturer of the Pro Ops line of specialized military watches was founded in 1980 by watch technicians and ex-military personnel. MTM is a pioneer in supplying customized watches to corporations, military and police units worldwide. MTM’s mission is to develop tough, dependable, rugged military watches utilizing state of the art technology…watches that comply with and supersede military standards and will complement futurewarriors and military forces worldwide in the 21st century.

MTM was approached by members of an elite special forces unit who requested that they develop watches for their unit. They requested features not yet available in the watch industry. These were to be special forces watches which incorporated cutting edge technology and materials. The goal was to find and utilize such technology and to integrate it into the watch with functions that were useful to soldiers, special forces, and tactical units in the field.

During the developmental stage of the MTM Pro Ops Series, inquiries were made by other divisions looking into the possibility of MTM developing a pilot or aviator watch, navy seal watches, police watches and other military equipment. The decision to release the MTM Special Ops first, as the flagship model with its revolutionary lighting system, was then made. It was shortly after 9/11 and the beginning of operations in Afghanistan and Iraq that sales began to accelerate at a rapid pace.


Soon, demand began to increase for specialized watches from SWAT teams, Green Beret and Commando units, Delta Force and law enforcement operations worldwide. That demand led to the eventual development of the Vultures, Seals, Patriots, Predators, Silencers, Navigators, Warriors, etc, which are now being worn proudly by members of the FBI, DEA, U.S. Coast Guard, Navy Seals and the U.S. Secret Service Tactical Team.

The success of MTM Pro Ops Watches is a testament to the rugged dependability and forward looking design that goes into each and every model. In the U.S., MTM Pro Ops Watches are available only from MTM and carefully selected authorized retailers. They are available internationally through thoroughly screened and approved distributors only.
