This particular way point stands just outside Washington, DC and as you probably guessed -- is pronounced COURAGE.We chose COURG because courage is a character trait we could all use more of -- choosing to make the right and often difficult decisions even when we know the going will get tough."Built like a tank, it's robust and dependable, with movement that will run for twenty years without servicing. It's also automatic, minimal, functional and an excellent value for money. If you're after a premium timepiece with ultra-modern functionality, there's no better choice than the COURG watch by Redux. And because it's made from Titanium it is the lightest watch in it class. 20% lighter than comparable watches.For less than $300 you'd be hard pressed to find a better made or a better looking watch.
