Nowadays, the world of tough and tactical watches is vast and come together with numerous brands available in the markets. In this crowded market, the Kobold Watch is one of them. Most of the watches made from a variety of high caliber materials, these include aerospace-grade titanium, scratch proof sapphire crystal, and surgical stainless steel.
The Kobold Watch Co. is an American watch manufacturing company. It was established by Michael Kobold. The company specializes in manufacturing rugged and durable wrist instruments designed to withstand extreme and adverse environments. Its products are mostly intended for professionals who require accuracy and reliability in a wristwatch. One of their lines of watch that caught my eyes is Kobold Phantom Tactical and Kobold Soarway Diver SEAL Tactical.
Kobold Phantom Black Ops
Although the watch looks like a minimalist watch with a black matte DLC coated case, The Kobold Phantom Black Ops Chronograph is one of the most perfect watch. It’s waterproof to dept of 900 feet and the case made from lightweight stainless steel which keeps the watch at a relatively light.
The features also include INCABLOC, is integrated into the movement and comes standard in all Kobold watches, . Maybe you doesn’t have to be a Navy SEAL to have this awesome watch, but according to Kobold official site, a lot of individual SEAL’s member wearing it. Kobold Phantom Black Ops price tag around $4,450.
Kobold Phantom Tactical
The Phantom, Kobold’s tactical chronograph was created in cooperation with some of the nation’s leading military and law enforcement like SWAT team. The case made from a solid block of surgical stainless steel and coated with three layer of PVD, the awesome technology to ensure the watch surface not tarnish or discolor and have more scratch resistant.

Although I’m an obvious a tough G-Shock watch fans, but after seen these Kobold’s Tactical watch, I’m immediately fall in love with these watch. Then again, if you see the price tag (more than $4,000), it sometimes seems like there are few things to consider before I’m actually buy it, because there are several other comparable brands out there which are much less expensive and serve precisely the same purpose, but if you are sure you want great quality, craftsmanship, accuracy, and beauty, you can’t go wrong with Kobold Watches.
