COURG is a way-point, which is a guidance tool used by pilots to chart their flight across the world. Way points are composed of 5-letters and made to be spoken as a word so pilots can quickly transmit their location via radio. This specific way-point stands just outside Washington, DC and as you probably guessed is pronounced COURAGE. Redux & Co chose COURG because courage is a character attribute everybody could use more of choosing to make the right and often difficult decisions even when they know the going will get tough.

COURG Type A watch is for all of you with adventure in your blood, and missions to confront. It's inspired by mission critical pilot instruments, fused with diver tools, titanium. The German aircraft ministry developed designs for their WWII pilots, called B-Uhren short for Beobachtungs-uhren (“Observation Watch”). and is often referred to as a Type A or flieger. The Luftwaffe owned these watches, and the pilots were forced to return them after each mission.&
