The 25th anniversary of the establishment of the GROM Military Unit, which took place in 2016, was the inspiration for the birth of the idea of creating an occasional watch designed for current and former GROM operators.
In cooperation with soldiers of GROM Unit, the Auxilium Association, and the designer of the Design Department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw Dominik Głąb (he also works as a designer in the company - Janusz Kaniewski Design and is a co-designer of our watch Syrena Sport) we have developed a project of the watch - OPERATOR.
A watch characterized by military and technical design, the modular design allows for its adaptation to the different conditions. The color of the watch is kept in black tones, which brings it closer to the weaponry (this was one of the requirements set by soldiers of JW GROM).
The watch will be distributed in cooperation with the Auxilium Association and the Unit. It will be intended only for current and former soldiers of the GROM Military Unit and for persons indicated by the Unit and Association.
The watch will be produced in a limited number of 250 copies.

WATCH IN PRE-SALE. PLANNED FOR 2018
Considering a huge interest of people unrelated to the Unit, we also decided to release the "civil" version available to all interested parties. This version will differ only in a few details from the military version. This variation of the watch is also planned in a limited edition of 250 pieces.
Part of the revenue from the sale of watches will be allocated to the statutory activities of the Auxilium Association.
The specific design of the watch, the use of several non-standard solutions delayed the implementation of the project. However, we hope that soon it will see the daylight, and will be found on the wrists of soldiers and customers. Taking into account the appearance of prototypes, in our opinion, they are worth waiting for.
