TOUGH AND SMART
on 5 September 2011
This watch is big and chunky. It is a mat black metal case and the metal strap is black but slightly shiny. The number are a turquoise blue the hour and minute hands have a blue tip and white (slightly yellow) body. The second hand is blue. The hour and minute hands and the numbers on the face are all very luminous. I have used this at work (emergency services) and it has been comfy to wear, undamaged and most importantly easy to read at a glance. The model with an LED is, to me, useless. I often need to know the time while both hands are on a steering wheel, weapon or subject so I don't have a spare hand to operate a watch light. This makes the glow in the dark essential to me. Tritium lit watches are brighter but I have heard these little gas filled tubes can break and they have a limited lifespan. To be honest all the other functions are nice to have but i probably wont use them much. The only down side is the small size of the little dials which you cant read easily in good light and not at all in the dark.
I require a reliable, tough easy to read watch with a smart appearance and this is it. I would highly recommend this watch to anyone in the forces or emergency services or anyone who wants a tough good looking reliable watch. As soon as you open the tin and feel the weight and see the quality you wont be disappointed.
