    COURG Zero-Hour Titanium Pilot Diver Watch Hybrid



    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.


    COURG Aviation Waypoint


    Refined to the core 3-6-9 hour elements, this dial is driven by diver watch functionality where distractions are stripped away to only essential elements that optimize legibility in murky conditions and aid instant instrument readouts. Zero-Hour is the military term for the scheduled time of a mission.

    We selected a classic 39mm size and implemented a date window at 4PM.

    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 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 20 ATM 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.

    Wish all of my autos were this accurate.

    Most accurate automatic I’ve ever owned. By a long shot. Great watch!

    I like this watch

    I look is very sleek and classic. No brand names on the face. Light weight and a good size, not to big or small. I got the leather band and it adds to the look. I did have an issue and had to send it back. Service and communication was good but slow.

    A true tool watch for the modern age

    Man i dont know where to begin this review. I initially tried to purchase the courg zero hour while deployed overseas. I was looking for a lightweight tool watch that could stand up to use in the field and needles to say the courg fit that bill very well with its 39mm titanium case, reliable Seiko NH35 movement, scratch resistant sapphire crystal, 200m wr, and elapsed time bezel. Unfortunately we ran into problems shipping it to my APO address overseas and eventually I opted to have Redux just send the watch to my home address in the states. Not only was Redux patient in trying to work with their shipping agency in figuring out how to get the watch to me, they also retroactively refunded me 15% as I qualified for the Valliant Alliance membership (which I was not aware of at the time of purchasing), and even included a couple of beautiful extra straps free of charge. That kind of customer service is pretty rare today to say the least, and is a true testament to the integrity of the company. Now regarding the actual product, what can I say, it does what its meant to do very well. The zero hour dial is very legible both day and night which is important in my type of work. The lume is quite nice, the crown threads very well into the case, and this watch has one of the better executed date apertures Ive seen in a long time. The case is very comfortable to wear and for a 39mm watch has great wrist presence - if you're on the edge because of the size I would say go for it. The straps are also really well made and very comfortable. Overall a great watch from a great company!

    Awesome automatic

    My Redux is an awesome watch. Nothing about it that I don’t like. And the customer service is just as awesome!
