The foundations for intelligence operations built by true Spy Master Sir William Stephenson (Codename Intrepid) and Camp X in Whitby Ontario, was a small piece of an international effort to swing victory in WWII. Winston Churchill’s secret arm of covert and clandestine operators known as the Special Operations Executive were so secretive even MI6 were unaware of who they were.
Often solitary, the nature of their hidden operations, serving with resistance fighters, may have never had reports and few had recognition past confidential archives.

There once was a "Man Called Intrepid"
But he was not alone...
At Whitby Watch Co., X holds significant meaning.
Not only does it represent the SOE Camp X Special Training School in our home town of
Whitby Ontario, but X also represents the heroic charge by men and women willing to sacrifice everything for the
freedom of others and their courage, that may never be truly recognized, for shaping the world we live in today.
X was the light in the darkness.
The Limited Edition Intrepid X honours the
Men, Women and Missions of the Special Operations Executive
from 1940 - 1946, that can only be identified as X

1940, London, England. In search of a light in the darkness, British forces assemble a secret arm of covert and clandestine operators to take the fight to the Nazis. They were the Special Operations Executive (SOE). Sir William Stephenson was charged to train Canadian and American operatives at one of the SOE establishments, the Special Training School 103 known as Camp X in Whitby, Ontario. These men and women joined an international X force: a network of spies trained in the art of sabotage, propaganda and illicit warfare with a mission to intercept and infiltrate the enemy.
TheIntrepid X pays tribute the unknown victories of the agents, their confidants and informants, by bringing to light their incredible sacrifices and triumphs for today's free world.
Are You Intrepid?
The Intelligence foundations built by Sir William Stephenson and the Canadian contribution at Camp X and to the SOE have continued with descendant intelligence and military organizations in Canada. They are:
Communications Security Establishment (CSE); Canadian Special Operations Forces Command (CANSOFCOM); Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS); Canadian Forces Intelligence Command (CFINTCOM); Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP)
The Intrepid X pays tribute to the Canadian Intelligence branches with subtle design details including E Tenebris Lux, a Compass Rose with daggers added to recognize the covert operations of the SOE and Action From Knowledge the motto of the Canadian Intelligence Corps.
