erikclabaugh , maybe dig a little deeper about both the watch and person before reaching conclusions.

Lifetime warranty and genuine focus on build quality adds value to me :shrug:
I immediately think of CWC and Marathon watches as a good comparison for tool quartz watches at a similar price point.

As for the legitimacy of the company owner, I would say at least try to find some facts before casting judgement. Easy if you try.

Have a good one.

Man, I thought this thread delivered back when it was just a friend starting a watch company. Little did I know that it would turn into gold in typical DWC fashion. Fucking excellent.

No, they write books and go on CNN/FOX. As someone with 30+ years in the intelligence community (retired) I have a good idea what Graham did. You haven't a clue.

Why don’t you search online and see all the people who wrote about his classes and if you dig a little deeper you can see he is the real deal.

Whoa! Looks like I stirred things up. That wasn’t my intention.

If Grahamcombat says he’s with the CIA, then he’s with the CIA.

Apologies for my skepticism.

Erik, I do see where you are coming from. So many people claim bullshit to sell something. Or they post amazing tactical pics over every square inch of there website to the point that it can be a turn off. :crybaby: Matt does not fall into the tactical armchair category though. :salute:

"Matthew Graham, the founder of Graham Combat, spent the previous twelve years at the Central Intelligence Agency, functioning as the OIC of a firearms program and tactics instructor of low profile operations. As a former federal air marshal, Matt operated covertly throughout the world, running low profile counter-terrorism missions. Prior to 9/11 Matt worked patrol as a police officer, both municipally and as a county deputy, and is a recipient of the Life Saving Medal, the Medal of Valor, and the Law Enforcement Medal of Honor. Graham Combat training courses, all created from Matt’s experiences and taught from a concealed carry profile, are a blend of these operational backgrounds. Matt has designed core curriculum for defensive shooter’s focusing on fighting with what you carry, shooting fast, and hitting first."

I don’t know about cooking, but I’m going to find out if he can swim tomorrow.

I got the “his and hers” models out, Graham - or maybe I should say the “two bears” models.
