Firstly, the customer service from time lounge is superb, any questions and they are swift to help.
Next, this is neither a cheap watch or very expensive one. What is impressive is the quality of it and the ease of use. It has the usual day date, chronograph, and alarm functions then it gets really interesting. This watch is a dive computer, and as stated in the instructions in no way does it replace any safety gear on a dive, it is only as a back up. it logs up to the last four dives with depth, start time, end time, average depth and temperature, then, if you want you can set the dive depth and time to give of an alarm when either of these is reached. It does seem complicated but honestly, it is very easy after going through the well written instructions a few times. On top of that the dial for the time is very clear and luminous in the dark. It also comes with an extension strap if you wear a lot of bulk around your wrist on a dive. Even if you never go in the water with this it looks very impressive on the wrist and is very comfortable it also does not feel as if you have a lead weight on your wrist like say, the Rotary aquaspeed.
The watch arrived in an oblong box?!! but the reason was revealed when opened, the watch was encapsulated in a small version of an oxygen tank! (plastic) and as stated, really clear instructions and a brief synopsis of who Chris Benz is and why the range of watches came about. Not only impressed with it, really overjoyed and the service from the seller made parting with that amount of money a little easier! The one draw back for some may be that it is battery driven but then there are manual one's in the range, of course probably not as function laden. Last but not least, it did not leak at eighteen metres and did what was expected. Brill!
