David knows first-hand what it takes to push forward when times are tough and achieve anything he sets his mind to with a non-quitting mindset.

What Makes Dave Coleman a Nite Maverick?

Having joined the Marines aged only 16 and going on to pass Commando Training first time despite struggling through the entire process because of his young age and an uncontrollable stammer, David knows first-hand what it takes to push forward when times are tough and achieve anything he sets his mind to with a non-quitting mindset.

Based at 45 Commando throughout his military career, David served just shy of 8 years in the Corps embarking on exercises and operations all around the world including a 6-month tour of Afghanistan aged 18 where he was involved in a grenade explosion suffering multiple injuries and requiring 28 stitches to his neck, arms, legs and buttocks.

David is now the proud owner of Civvy 2 Commando, a company that both physically and mentally prepares civilians with aspirations of joining the Royal Marines to give them the best possible head start on basic training and increase their likelihood of becoming a Commando. Intent on practicing what he preaches about stepping out of your comfort zone and becoming comfortable being uncomfortable, David has now gone full circle in the recovery of his stammer by stepping into the public and motivational speaking sector.


We are thrilled to announce a new sponsorship partnership with Royal Marines training company, Civvy to Commando (C2C).  

NITE WATCHES will be the official sponsor of  C2C’s 1-2-1 Training Programmes and Royal Marines Experience Weekend Camps for the next two years. As part of this exciting new partnership, C2C recruits will receive branded kit, accessories and exclusive offers.

Matt Ralph, Nite Marketing Director, commented: “We have been working with Nite Maverick & C2C owner Dave Coleman over the last year, and it is clear that we share similar values and aspirations. Our military heritage and watch collection are a perfect fit with C2C's purpose and objectives.  Dave’s story is a real inspiration; he embodies Nite Watches, Proven through Passion ethos in everything he does. 

We look forward to working together and hope this partnership assists even more recruits in reaching their goal of joining the Royal Marines." 

Dave Coleman, C2C Founder and Chief Instructor, commented: "After working closely with Nite Watches over our first year in business and relying heavily on their kit when out on the hill in all weather conditions, it is incredibly humbling to have their continued support for 2023/24, and knowing that we can rely on them to have our back, and help us further our ambitions. 

We are incredibly proud and grateful to announce Nite Watches as our lead sponsor for 2023/24. They have welcomed us with open arms, and we are incredibly excited to strengthen this relationship and pass on the benefits to our recruits.

Nite Maverick

As Worn By Dave

There are times when life can be extra demanding on your watch, so we created a watch that was built extra tough and designed to handle anything.

The Hawk has a super lightweight polycarbonate case, ultra-scratch resistant sapphire crystal with triple anti-reflective coating and as with all our models, it has a Swiss-made movement and tritium illumination.

If you find yourself in some more challenging environments and you need a watch that can keep up, then this could be the watch for you. It has already been proven through passion.
