The Gryphon is a hybrid tactical watch that combines a space age Nitromid cover, a glass-reinforced polymer with a tensile strength higher than steel, and a stainless-steel core. The result is a watch with improved durability and impact resistance that has the watertight capabilities of a fully stainless-steel version at half the weight.

The Gryphon has a 42mm case, a 10-year lithium power cell, and quartz movement, and is depth-tested to 200 meters. Designed to block the watchband from absorbing odor and dirt while increasing comfort, the Gryphon strap is made of nylon webbing co-molded with Reactor's proprietary silicone and natural rubber compound. This unique blend of materials mounted around a stainless-steel tube with a solid stainless-steel screw bar creates a tough, durable watchband. The Gryphon also has Reactor's patented Never Dark illumination technology. Never Dark is the first technology to combine the intense brightness of Superluminova with the multi-year longevity of tritium. SRP: $350. (reactorwatch.com)
