Pilot. Entrepreneur. Hero. Spy... Canadian
Sir William Stephenson was considered as the real life James Bond by Ian Fleming
He was the leader of the "Camp X" Special Training School 103 and the Canadian Special Forces Intelligence Branch.
When King George VI quoted the 1908 Minnie Haskins’ poem in his 1939 Christmas broadcast, he recognized that men of faith and soldiers of freedom were desperately needed to overcome the darkness engulfing wartime Europe.
Sir William Stephenson, a Canadian patriot who headed the British Security Coordination task force, established and trained as many as 2000 Allied spies at Camp X, and carried out clandestine operations throughout WWII, answered this call. Stephenson, whose intelligence code name was Intrepid, represents the courageous, resolute, and often untold effort of Canadians who worked in the shadows to make way for the light of freedom.
A quick story, I took my new Intrepid watch in to a jeweller to get the band adjusted and the jewellers couldn't get over how high quality the watch was. They thought it was at least $2,500 watch! When I told them what I paid, they were blown away."
Our story begins recognizing Canada’s rich heritage and trials, tribulations and triumphs through history that have shaped this great free country.
WWCo honors our light in the darkness, The Man Called Intrepid, and pays tribute to the modern day contributions of the CFIB through the inclusion of the inspiring motto on the case back of every Intrepid diver watch.
At WWCo, the compass rose reflects the connection all Canadians have; to each other and to the exceptional contributions Canada has made to the free world . Wear your history.
Each limited edition Intrepid diver comes with a commemorative challenge coin featuring the official Camp X emblem, and its alternative designation as STS 103 (Special Training School No. 103)
