It's Almost Ready - The Commando 10th Anniversary

From Hager Watches -

As previously mentioned, I am admittedly biased when it comes to Hager. I think the watches themselves offer great value for the money, they have an extremely loyal following, and I am proud to call the owner of Hager Watches, Pete Brown, my friend.

When I started Tempus Fugit ten years ago, I can honestly say that I did not really know a soul in the watch business outside of DOXA or Tourneau. And now, for better or worse (depending on who you asked) I now know a whole bunch. Out of literally a couple hundred, a few have become true friends. And I take great personal satisfaction when these folks succeed.  And now 10 years since he put himself out there to make a watch for the men and women that he served with, Hager is a full-grown brand and their 10th Anniversary edition of the original Hager Commando is a fitting exclamation point.

So a truly heartfelt congratulations to Pete and Hager Watches. Thank you for proving that hard work pays off, and that even in Watch Town, the universe tends to unfold as it should.
