The ground trembles and shakes as an enemy’s armored vehicle approaches. The soldier's chest tightens as he holds his breath. It’s not time! Don’t let them see us. It’s World War I and he is on the front lines. By glancing at the watch firmly strapped around his wrist, he knows it’s nearly time to attack… nearly, but not yet. On the hour, his backup arrives and the upper hand is theirs.
Military use of the wristwatch moved timepieces from pockets to arms worldwide in the beginning of the 20th century during WWI. They were essential to synchronize military movement. When popularized, all models were round. It wasn’t until one day in 1917 that the rectangular design was created by Louis Cartier-- His inspiration? The Renault Tank.
Even when we squint a little, we can’t see the resemblance either, BUT we like the idea that a tank and a watch can be related. Creating a square watch became a mission! After all, an armored artillery vehicle is as tough as gears can get. It had to be done. Unlike most square watches that don’t look like a tank or act like a tank, ours can withstand a lot of punishment (and it looks damn good too).
When you get ready to battle your day, don’t forget to wear a timepiece that you can rely on.

When you spend your hard-earned money on our products, you can do so with confidence knowing that your gear will always be fully-functional and defect-free. You can also rest assured that we will do everything in our power to keep your product in use and out of a landfill.
If any part of your Gear’d Hardware product becomes non-functioning or defective, we will repair or replace it with a fully-functioning item in the same or better condition.
Note the "non-functioning or defective" part. This means that the warranty does not cover cosmetic wear that does not affect the safety or function of your product. In our opinion, a little scratch or knick here and there is nothing more than bragging rights that you've been having some fun with your gear. If something breaks due to manufacturer defect under normal use, don’t worry one bit. We’re behind you all the way.
Thought my favorites were the big bold faces like the Juggernaut, Stealth, or Rambo....don’t get me wrong the McQueen is a great color
combo (OK, I have a few Gear’d watches)....but the Tank quickly became my favorite!
