Sometimes, only a digital watch will do. But we were tired of inexpensive digital watches that fell apart after a year. So we built one with Smith & Bradley construction. A polycarbon shell that can take a beating. Precision Japanese timing that won't let you don't. And a bright LCD display that shows up when you need it.
In the fields of conflict and competition, the LOCKDOWN digital watch delivers hardcore watch durability with a precision LCD Display for maximum readout visibility. Featuring best in class EL Chip backlighting and advanced Japanese timing, the LOCKDOWN watch is engineered to perform optimally in any environment, friendly or hostile.
An end-to-end original Jerommie Smith design, the Skyline has a traditional mid-century aesthetic married with modern high-style elements. Nowhere is this more evident than the matching handcrafted sandwich dial and classic recessed numbering with modern tones. Available in stainless steel, or special order solid 18 karat gold, the Skyline is an all original throwback timepiece that will take over a room.
Perfectly balanced for the wrist, we oversee all stages of the Skyline build and quality control process. The Skyline is a hybrid of old and new. It's combination of sleek lines, simplicity and boldness without being overstated make it the pride of the S&B™ brand.

I own 4 other S&B watches and this is the second Lockdown (The first was in OD green and I wanted one in black that was not available then). For the price, I don't believe that there's a better watch available anywhere. I've owned my first Lockdown for 2 years with zero issues. It keeps near perfect time and any adjustments are simple and easy to remember. It's easy to read and the light is as bright as you could ask for. I don't dive or go swimming with this watch, but rinsing it off to clean is no issue as far as water resistance is concerned. You can't go wrong with this or any other Smith and Bradley in my opinion. Jerommie Smith and his crew just do things right.
I am giving them as gifts. Very well made.
Watch seems tough, only had it a week. Harder to read in sunlight compared to other watches I've had. A light colored background to numbers would help. Watch is huge for what it offers. Layout of display could fit, and be easier to use in a smaller package. I'm always catching it on things because of size. Countdown timer has no memory, have to reset for each use, not helpful to me. I miss everything about my digital Timex Expedition this watch replaced. But I plan to keep using it anyway, fast shipping, good price. Only American made at price point that I could find. That is the main reason I bought it.
a better review if I had received the proper written instructions that should have come with this model. The watch itself will serve my purpose: waterproof, 1 button to illuminate the dial and it seems fairly rough for my rough job. Just wish the proper instructions were packed in with the watch and that someone with common sense would have wrote them. The KISS Principle would definitely be the way to go with the instructions-Keep It Simple ******!
Clean and with no frills. Easy to use and looks great
