I like that the 10 calendar year battery will likely outlast the watch, and the 10 bar water resistance is holding up well up to now to daily immersions in a triple sink and some swims in the sea.I saw some of the other feedback that described the band as a weak point.For what it’s value, the watch has an 18mm lug width which means you can simply replace it with any inexpensive NATO or ZULU strap (though the band may cost a lot more than the watch :).See my attached pics with the view on a Maratac 18mm MI-6 Regimental colors (Bond) ZULU strap.
As a wrist watch collector I have maybe five digital watches in my collection, but this and the iconic F-91W are the only ones that get regular wrist period.Many people don’t wear watches any more because they use their phones, but you still can’t beat a watch for convenience.This would be a good choice for people who simply want that convenience. Just glance down at your wrist, and there is the date, day and amount of time in large readable characters.
I am happy to report that after six dives and being taken to below 90 ft…it works fine just.Note: I did not try pushing buttons under drinking water.The piece is simple to setup, instructions are understandable (which is a big deal nowdays), and gets the basic functionality adequate for a casual use.
Unless you like beefy watches then I suggest you buy a less beefier view.
I was looking for a digital view with with a huge display.This one fits the bill.It is a simple watch, a requirement also.It tells enough time both in standard and military time(you select one or the other), day, date and seconds. It also has a stop watch, and an alarm, neither which I use.The good reason behind the big display, is that I’m old.I needed a watch that I could appearance at without my reading eyeglasses and see what period it is.
It has time, day of week, month, and day time of month, stopwatch, alarm, and a signal for each top of the full hour. It can standard and military period.That’s about it.Everything else on the watch encounter is a waste materials of LEDs, IMO.The LED color options for the trunk light were a surprised (red and purple?!).It’s still jogging on the same batteries after more than a season.Gets wet frequently (don’t really go free of charge diving, so I can’t say about how good it submerges) and continues to be fine.It actually works fast – I must set it back again every few weeks (I value seconds, though).
