Why it's cool:  Very simple, very strong - the handle is (thick) solid titanium
and the locking mechanism is simply another function of the handle.
Top quality work.

Watches
Luminox Titanium Dive watch w/Titanium Bracelet, model 3604

Why it's cool:  The illumination is provided via Tritium gas in glass vial which
is much
brighter than the normal glow in the dark tritium "paint".  Add saphire crystal
and titanium case and band.

This watch is interesting in that it is filled with fluid to allow it to be used to insane depths.
We may never use this feature, bit it is cool.
