Reactor Watches

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

Over the past couple years I’ve been doing my homework on watches.  We have been searching for a line of watches that would meet the high standards that we have in our private label “Holland” watches.  The Reactor watch is all that and more.  Created nearly 10 years ago with the ambition to be “The best build performance sports watch….period”, the designers improved on every aspect of a typical watch from the ground up.  Here are just a few of  highlights that only Reactor watches can boast.  All cases are forged from solid marine grade type 316L stainless steel or titanium for the ultimate  in strength and corrosion resistance.  Bands are attached to the case with solid threaded screwbars providing at least 500% higher strength that most competing watches.  Reactor’s exclusive screw crown system stays WATER TIGHT even when unscrewed.  Casebacks are forged form the same high-grade material as the case for a perfect seal, even after a battery change.  All dials and hands are coated eight times with Reactor’s own blend of Swiss Superluminova for the brightest lasting glow in the industry, up to 24 hours with only one minute of light exposure.   Every Reactor watch is tested THREE times in water.  The industry standard uses pressurized air test to determine a watched water tightness, which is not as reliable as water. Duh!!  And finally, while most swiss watches uses a synthetic sapphire crystal which is highly scratch resistant but not shatter resistant, Reactor uses a K1, high ceramic glass which is scratch resistant and three times more shatter resistant.  I can truthfully not praise the watch enough.  There is absolutely no better made watch out there…period.  We currently have approximately 25 watch in the store, with more arriving weekly or so.  Come by and check them out or visit for more info and images.

2009 here we come!!! How can this year be over so quick? I had a huge list of things to accomplish in 2008 and I don’t think I made a dint in it. Clean the attic, clean under the house, get caught up with appraisals at work, get rid of the clutter in the vault (5 year plan) and many more things that only depress me to mention. Some days I think, there are too many hours in a day. Other days I think, there are not enough hour in a day. Life goes on and the new year approaches with all the opportunities it has to offer. This year the #1 item on my list is not to make any more list. The #2 item on the list that I’m not gonna make, is to spend more time with my family and friends. Hopefully spending more time with these people will keep them from things on their to-do-list then I won’t feel so bad. Confused? ME TOO! Happy New Year.
