Canadian Search & Rescue needed a watch that could live up to the demands of their job. As such, they contacted Marathon, a Candian watch company, and put them on contract.
“Build us something with the qualities of a tank.”
And that’s exactly what Marathon did. In fact, they were so successful that it wasn’t long before the American government put them on contract as well. The result is a series of watches that is widely known and accepted in the watch world as the ultimate tool watch.
