Summary: Granted, I've only had this watch a few days now, but I'm impressed. Bought this watch to replace my 15+ yo Swiss Army that's probably on it's last legs. Extremely light, but feels like a very solid, quality time piece. Can't offer much on durability at this point, but it will be put through it's paces on hiking/camping/kayaking trips this coming summer. By the way, as far as the 'cool' factor goes, this watch is off the charts... it's a real eye catcher.
Summary: I wanted to write a short review on this watch because I literally searched for a year for a reliable good looking watch. I settled on this watch due to its looks. I bought it locally because I wanted to see it on my arm. It is light weight, don't even know its there. Looks classy. I am a cop and it looks great on me in my uniform, as well as my casual clothes. I'm so scared I'll scratch it, but so far, it has handled the abuse. Looks great. Can see it great in the dark.
Summary: This watch looks great and it is not too big like many of the other watches out there. The subdued black out is light, comfortable and wears well. The glow upon the dial and hands is easily read and the darker your environment the easier it is to read.
Summary: I got this watch for my husband. He and others like the black face with glow-in-the-dark hands. The rubber wristband is very masculine and fits an athletic style of dress. Overall, a great watch for a great guy!
Summary: The watch functions, but it's not nearly so tough and durable as one may think. It's a dive watch, but everything's blacked out, which really makes it the most impractical dive watch of which I can think. The timing slips a couple seconds per couple weeks; I've had more accurate $10 Casio's from corner stores in third world countries than this. I broke the band in half in less than a year of wear.
Summary: I have been buying Timex watches for years, mainly because the bands fit my wrist. As Timex watches have gotten more expensive, they have gotten more cheaply made. And the bands are connected to the watch so when the band breaks, the watch is in effect broken. When my last Timex, a solar powered watch, died after a little more than a year, I decided to buy a real watch. So far I believe The Blackout Watch is it. It keeps great time. It fits my wrist.
Summary: I purchased this watch mainly for a multi-day sailing transit in the open ocean and have enjoyed wearing it for everyday occasions. While out on the ocean, the watch performed flawlessly in all aspects of time telling. The numbers are easy to see under direct sunlight or artificial lighting. If for some reason the numbers blended into the background, then the white tritium capsules on the hands and numbers contrasted to determine the time.
Summary: I bought the watch and used it for five weeks before the movement failed and it had to be sent in for repair which cost only $10. Soon after I received the repaired item the pin holding the watchband onto the watch popped out when i reached down to retrieve something stuck between my carseat and console. This pin was extremely thin and cheap like in a $35 dollar watch. If I had been in the woods or mountains I certainly would have lost the watch.All this in two months.
