As a child my first watch was a digital watch - I've never owned or wore anything other than digital watches.
I prefer the exactness of a digital display vs analogue hands.
But it is very hard to find a quality digital watch that just tells the time and maybe a stopwatch and alarm.
Suunto make very good watches but they are the size of small plates and include a whole host of functionality I just don't need.
Do I really need to know on a day by day basis the current air pressure? My exact GPS location? Etc
The Ventura Delta is a watch and that's it. It includes a timer, countdown time and alarms but none of the fancy stuff I don't need daily.
Which means its also much more compact than those more fully featured watches. Which suits my smaller ( 6.5 inch ) wrists.
The hardened steal body and the sapphire crystal glass mean this watch will stay looking good when other watches are all scratched and beaten up!
Its waterproof to 30m - essentially its showerproof but don't go swimming in it! 30m depth is static depth and doesn't include the extra pressure of moving water.
I'm very happy with the design and fit. Looks fine and is comfortable on my 6.5 inch wrist.
Easy to use with the wheel - previous watches were devils to work out how to do something as simple as time something. This one is very easy to use.
Its also made in Switzerland rather than China - making it quite a rarity!
I've had it 2 weeks and so far its lost about half a second. So pretty accurate!
The description says "Maroon Leather Strap" but really its more a dark brown - thankfully! I was concerned it might be a bit too red.
The strap is quite stiff at first - took about 10 days to become comfortable. I suspect its because its a quality genuine leather strap.
All in all its very expensive but also very good quality.
In many ways its similar to the Braun Men's Prestige Digital Watch BN0106SLBKG With Rubber Strap
The difference is the design of the Ventura Delta - to me - looks nicer. The Ventura Delta is also slightly smaller and has sapphire crystal glass and a hardened steal case. The Ventura Delta is also Swiss made and I guess more exclusive if that's important to you.
