    Redux Titanium #COURG Type-A Watch Field Reports



    The COURG ORIGIN: Mission critical pilot instruments, fused with diver tools.


    COURG is a way point, which is a navigational tool used by pilots to chart their flight across the globe. Way points are composed of 5-letters and made to be spoken as a word so pilots can quickly transmit their location via radio. This particular way point stands just outside Washington, DC and as you probably guessed -- is pronounced COURAGE.

    We chose COURG because courage is a character trait we could all use more of -- choosing to make the right and often difficult decisions even when we know the going will get tough.

    TYPE-A: Upgraded Iconic German Design

    The German aircraft ministry developed designs for their WWII pilots, called B-Uhren -- short for Beobachtungs-uhren ("Observation Watch"). and is often referred to as a Type A or Flieger. The Luftwaffe owned these watches, and the pilots were forced to return them after each mission. These were 55mm!

    We translated the legendary Type-A design into a classic 39mm size and implemented a date window at 4PM.

    Then we updated all the materials and machinery. Titanium encased. Powered by your adventures.

    Built from premium materials inside and out with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, which we've coated with an anti-reflective glare layer. Titanium grade 2 or grade 5, bead blasted and 50% lighter than a stainless steel equivalent.

    The uni-directional titanium bezel prevents accidental rotation, and provides rugged precision machined teeth for grip.

    This watch is rated to 15ATM (Ti.Gr2) or 20 ATM (Ti.Gr5) with a screw down crown and streamlined crown guards to protect the movement from external shocks.

    The dial is matte black with our proprietary RDXb1 luminous paint that glows a true blue at night, paired with a C3 green second hand and bezel marker.

    Our date window cutout is circular to increase visibility of the numeral and add to the overall iconic design, with white numerals on black.

    20 Minutes Fast over 24 Hours

    I really, really loved the looks of this watch. When I received it I knew pretty quickly it wasn't a quality time piece when I could hear the rotor 'rub' as it turned within the case. Nonetheless I wore it for a year, in and out of rotation with other watches. Within the last week however, I noticed it was running fast - really fast, to the tune of about 20 minutes over the course of 24 hours. This renders the watch absolutely worthless. In hindsight I realize now that I bought a story instead of a remotely decent watch.

    Hi David, I'm so sorry to hear you're having issues with your COURG Type-A. Sometimes mechanical watches do run fast or slow, and we'd be happy to inspect it for repair and regulate the timing for you. Please contact us at so we can get that resolved.
