Whilst in Brisbane doing armoury work on the Netflix series ‘Tidelands’, I stumbled across a series of articles about local small businesses in the in-flight magazine.
One of them was about Adina watches, a father-son business just like Warwick Firearms – which also started within a year or two of when Warwicks started.
It was clear from reading the article that Grant Menzies of Adina was extremely passionate about his business but even more so about his watches Australian content. Well, we feel exactly the same about our rifles, so after about 6 months of getting my website right and business in a good position, I sent an email off introducing myself, our business and my idea for a ‘milspec’ watch inspired by the Rolex ‘Milsub’.
The wish list for the watch were that it had to have their best swiss automatic movement, sapphire crystal glass, be waterproof for diving, have fixed pins for a nato band and be extremely strong for the harshest of work environments. I also mentioned that we were Cerakote, ceramic paint, applicators and that the new Elite series would be perfect for this application.
I could not have hoped for a more positive and enthusiastic reply. Anyone who knows Grant, would know that was a given, but I did not know him as I do now. He said yes, so on my next visit to Brisbane a week or so later I went in to meet face to face, see the state-of-the-art assembly area, meet Bob – Grants father – and discuss how it all works.
So 18 months later, we have a newly designed watch body, cerakoted in a range of the Elite series. The internals are second to none and the external finishes are beautiful. Many man hours go into each watch and we are all very happy with the result.
I am proud of having spent some time in the army reserve and I wanted a trade badge for the band so I had one made. We are now making other trade badges to order for other customers that have asked about them.
