“DISCOVERY OUR INSPIRATION”
Red is one of the strongest colors, it’s energy, it has a power with the eye. The highlight of crimson red on anthracite grey creates ambiences that encourage us to focus, dwell time on the present, a moment, this second. Just like the red safelight that illuminates the darkroom, stabilizes the image print process.
THE DESERT EDITION ON BOARD
BE THE FIRST, TOE THE LINE
Arid regions make up about one-third of the earth’s land surface, a higher percentage than that of any other type of climate. Desert operations have long recognized the potential for army involvement in conflicts in these regions. To create a modern tactic tool watch version for special forces, we believe a Desert Edition should be adopted.

DESERT SAND CHALLENGE
SAVOIR-FAIRE, COLOUR IS A COMPLEX FORM
The modern camouflage system adopted by the US Army in 2010, “MultiCam” is a proven multi-environment concealment solution. It effectively limits the visual and near-IR signature of a person operating across a very wide range of physical environments and seasons.
The color inspiration behind the most updated “ARID” version of “MultiCam”, is specially tailored for desert environments that predominantly consist of open sand and rock. We have picked the warm tan shade of “Desert Sand”.
Our in-house design team spent many hours experimenting, assembling pigments and associating them with different materials. They searched for the perfect color and all its nuances. A meticulous work incarnated by The Shades of Desert Sand Challenge. The desired, perfect color and pigments for TYPE S6 "MOD DESERT EDITION".
UP TO MILITARY STANDARDS
Desert operations demand adaptation to the environment and to the limitations imposed by terrain and climate. Fail to prepare and prepare to fail. This climate calls for foolproof equipment.
TYPE S6 "MOD DESERT EDITION" is one of the few military watches in the market that boasts applied “Cerakote”. A strong, sturdy, thin-film protective ceramic coating. This leading coating is used in the automotive, aerospace, consumer, and defense industries.
The pigment series we used on TYPE S6, is typically used for firearm applications, it has been designed to withstand extreme temperatures (1,200°F/649°C). This makes the coating ideal for maintaining excellent adhesion even after repeated thermal cycling. It perfectly provides superior protection against corrosive environments and thermal shock in arid regions for the next special forces tool watch.
To achieve the best results, we guarantee the coating on each TYPE S6 is applied by a Certified Cerakote Applicator. As a professional atelier specialising in watch customization, our coating application is of the highest quality because of our commitment to excellence.
