"The Swamp" is a nickname coined by Heisman Trophy Winner and National Championship Florida Head Coach Steve Spurrier in the early 1990s to describe the Florida Gators home stadium. In describing Florida's home-field advantage, Spurrier noted that "a swamp is where Gators live, where we feel comfortable, but we our opponents feel tentative. A swamp is hot and sticky and is dangerous. Only Gators get out alive." It helps that the playing surface is actually constructed below ground level giving the feeling that one is stepping "down into a swamp" when the stadium is entered. The nickname quickly became popular and has been commonly used ever since.

The iconic Nato watch is inspired by military field watches from the 1940’s. The matte white dial features a school logo at the 12 hour and a school color second hand. The stainless steel watch case and strap hardware features a rich brushed finish. The nylon watch strap shows off school pride with multi-color webbing.
