Last year, Outdoor Edge unveiled its ParaClaw, a paracord survival bracelet with a small knife hidden in its sheath/buckle system. Now the Denver-based company is expanding the line by offering two new ParaClaw watches designed for close quarter defense (CQD).

ParaClaw CQD Watches

Available in stainless steel and zinc alloy models, these ParaClaw CQD watches boast Japanese quartz movements in water-resistant cases with paracord bands. The stainless steel variant boasts Miyota quartz movement; mineral glass; Titanium PVD coating; and a Lume indexed display. It’s also water-resistant up to 170 feet. The zinc alloy model also features mineral glass, along with Titanium PVD coating and a Lume indexed display, but it offers Seiko quartz movement and is water-resistant to 100 feet.

Both watches have the proprietary ParaClaw buckle that houses a 1.5-inch stainless steel hawksbill blade. The knife can be carried discreetly, but drawn quickly should you need to defend yourself.

In addition, each ParaClaw CQD watch is hand-tied from black 550 paracord. The bracelet has an adjustable loop to ensure a good fit, as well as a steel T-post for convenient attachment to your wrist. Two sizes are available. The medium fits wrist sizes 6.25 to seven inches, while the large is designed for wrists that are seven inches or larger.

MSRP on the stainless steel ParaClaw CQD watch is $134.95. The zinc alloy model is available for $79.95.
