I wanted this particular watch as it needs no battery change (hopefully) and self adjust's the time via radio signal. To put it bluntly it looks great and it's very low maintainence. Take it out of the box and the date and time are set, all you need to do is adjust the strap. with a little help from a video on Youtube this was soon done and 5 links shorter the watch fits like a dream.
However after waring the watch for 4 days a real problem came to light. I work in an office all day and believe me when I say I dont come into contact with anything more abrasive than a wooden desktop. Despite this by Friday my beauiful black watchstrap is showing definate signs of wear and is now my silver and black watchstrap. FOR A TIMEPEACE THAT THAT COST'S OVER £300 AND HAS A RECOMMENDED RETAIL PRICE OF ALMOST £400.00 THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE.
MY ADVISE TO YOU IS SIMPLE, IF YOU WANT A WATCH LIKE THIS GO FOR THE METALLIC FINISH AND NOT THIS SHODDY FINISH.
Firstly, this is a really well put-together watch. I have a number of other watches from Rolexes to Omegas to Breitlings and it is as well made as any of them. It is solid and well built and looks utterly stunning in black (IMHO better than the titanium and ss versions). You know the specs, solar powered, radio controlled, stopwatch, timer, the VERY useful TWO world alarms (which allows you to set two independent alarms in two independent timeszones - ie you may want an alarm to go off at 9am in London and another to go off at 9am in New York) etc.
As a pilot (commercial not a fighter pilot like the other reviewer) I do question the usability of the small LCD screens during turbulence and low light (I'll come on to this in a mo). I have a Breitling aerospace and the digital displays are as clear as anything but the small ones on this are not the easiest to read on the job and I would hate to have to read them on board a fast jet. The slide rule is great for quick calculations and I use it surprisingly often.
Well, as I said, the lcd screens aren't the clearest and are easily obscured by the hands.
The backlight does not work if you are in stopwatch or timer mode - pretty essential for flying at night and imho a stupid omission.
The date is slaved to the SECOND time zone and not the primary one. So, if you are in the UK and have the hands set for UK time, the date will be the date in Hong Kong and will be wrong for a large chunk of the day. Not the end of the world but again, a bit daft.
The '24 hour dial' is really pretty pointless and the 'Home Zone LCD Display' would be better served by being a date window (the date disappears if you are in any mode other than 'Calender')
And the biggie for me: The different functions are selected by pulling out the crown and twiddling it. It takes a bit of getting used to but even when you've 'mastered it' is still quite fiddly. Also, if you pull it out two clicks rather than one (which is EASILY done) it has a totally different function and can often be a pain to undo. Why they just didn't put an extra button on I have no idea.
The niggles aside, it's a great value watch and is hugely functional. It looks good and I think you'll enjoy wearing it.
FIDDLY: The different functions are selected by pulling out the crown then turning it. You have to get your nail underneath because a recess stops you getting at it from the front. Either take off the watch or jam your finger under it to pull out the crown. Then, it's too easy to pull it out to the second position, which can invoke completely different action (example: resets the watch to "reference position" if you were on stopwatch mode). If only this worked the same way as the Pro Masters do, with the mode selected by a button at the 8 o-clock position.
WORST OF ALL: The radio reception did not work (I'm in North-West England). Tried all the advice given in the manual, but no good, yet my £10 plastic desktop clock gets the same German radio signal indoors and without any problem.
I returned the watch.
Now if there was a black Pro Master ...
