There are certain watchmakers that we gravitate towards when looking for the ultimate in adventure ready timepieces and, chief amongst them, is Los Angeles based, MTM Watches. Their latest release, the Automatic US-744X Collection of watches expertly showcases their uncompromising, stealthy timepieces in all their glory and this latest series is one of the most covert divers class watches ever designed by MTM.
Taking its design inspiration from the US NAVY’S VIRGINIA Class attack Submarine, this Limited-Edition MTM Special Ops Automatic US-744X Watch is built for serious action and has a price tag of between $2800 and $2950. Don’t be fooled by its sophisticated design – this boardroom masterpiece was devised for those who want the highest quality in a submergible model without the all too familiar aesthetic of a typical diver’s timepiece. And MTM have pulled this off with aplomb.
From the Deep Blue Sea to the Boardroom
For the excellent looking US-744X collection, MTM jettisoned less used complications to deliver a considerably more functional timepiece for today’s businessman.

The MTM Special Ops Automatic US-744X Watches (from $2800) are available in an array of different colourways to suit different tastes and each one has certainly caught our eye here at Coolector HQ. There are so many features to these watches that set them apart from the competition in the dive watch market which includes the first rate Grand 6R20 29 bold 45-hour automatic movement with power reserve counter and 29 jewels.
