We make the Phantom Black Ops for men who work down range. The most legible Kobold chronograph.
The Phantom Black Ops is an aptly-named wrist instrument for silent professionals. Its green luminous hands and hour markers make it highly legible while wearing night vision goggles. In case you don't regularly use night vision goggles as part of your daily routine, you probably aren't a SEAL. No matter, you can use the Phantom Black Ops to do a number of other important jobs, like timing your dinner with the uni-directional rotating bezel. No matter in which environment you use the Phantom Black Ops, you can count on its rugged dependability and super sleek design to keep you thrilled. The men of the U.S. Navy SEALs who wear this stealthy watch are not issued a Kobold, they each choose to own one individually. Kobold makes this possible by giving SEALs and other service members a healthy discount in recognition of the sacrifices they make. The Phantom Black Ops features a case Made in USA. Stainless steel bracelet (DLC-coated). 1 year warranty. Built in USA using domestic and imported components. Yearly production limited to 50 watches.
stainless steel (matte and DLC-coated surfaces), screw-locked crown, push buttons and caseback, water-resistant to 30 atmospheres (990 feet), domed and anti-reflective sapphire crystal (front); 41mm diameter, 16mm height, 20mm lug width.
In 2009, when company founder Michael Kobold was invited to train with the U.S. Navy SEALs on their base in Coronado, California ahead of his expedition to Mt. Everest, he took the opportunity to ask a few SEAL operators for their input on a rugged military watch. The result can be seen in the Phantom Black Ops Chronograph.
