SHOT SHOW 2014 Smith & Bradley


The Smith & Bradley’s Sans-13 caught my eye at Shot Show this year. This is not your run of the mill tactical “looking” watch. This watch uses a Swiss quartz movement by Ronda housed in a PVD coated stainless steel case. The watch is o-ring sealed and water resistant to 200 meters.

At the booth, I had the opportunity to chat with Jerommie Smith and Ryan Bradley who had this to say…

“…We designed the San-13 after conducting hundreds of field interviews with members of law enforcement and the armed forces.  The overwhelming critique of existing tactical watches on the market was the fact many lume on the hands and dial of the watch, often tritium, was simply too bright and could compromise a position.  In response Smith & Bradley developed the Lume Tube technology to provide better lume than simple super lume paint without the overbearing brightness of tritium…”

The San-13 sells for $295, which is an exceptional value, in my view, and I’d call the work of these two young entrepreneurs Jerommie Smith and Ryan Bradley a hit.
