Summary: I have buyers remorse. I have owned the watch for less than two months now. While it is a profoundly attractive and masculine watch with a slight retro appeal, my troubles started as soon as I opened the box... When I set the time, the crown felt loose and wobbly like it had a cheap plastic stem and the metal clasp on the band popped right off as soon as I tried to fasten it to my wrist.
Summary: This watch is much nicer than pictures suggest. Stainless steel case is high quality, and khaki face looks great. The leather watch band is thick, sturdy and very comfortable. However, mine came with the wrong manual. I received the manual for the chronograph, not the alarm chronograph. I could not for the life of me figure out how to make it work, and was prepared to send it back as malfunctioning.
Summary: That's good stuff for vintage watch lovers and for life of course. I like the period of 50th and 60th and it looks like that. But never the less suitable as modern fashion things. I like that.
Summary: -My own measurements- 41.12mm - Bezel diameter 42.16mm - Case diameter 46.50mm - Case with crown 23.00mm - Lug/strap width 14.22mm - Case Thickness 2.05" - Case length w/lugs, tip to tip -Backstory- It's surprising how few (affordable) casual/dress styles tritium watches are available. Military and diving styles are abundant but just don't appeal to me for every day wear.
Summary: I received this watch a day earlier than expected and was very pleased with the quality of the product. The watch itself is very noticeable - it's quite thick yet very comfortable. The leather strap is of a very high quality and very thick - it takes some time for it to break in and soften, but that's to be expected with a leather band of this quality.

Summary: I gave this watch a four becuase the instruction guide that came with the watch is completely useless. They waste pages in the guide on how the Navy Seals love this watch. I would also like to love this watch if I knew how to use it! All I could figure out from the instructions is how to set the proper current date and time. I have no idea what the other three dials can do. I have heard it has an alarm, chronograph, etc. but I have no idea how to work the other features.
Summary: First off the watch looks much better in person than it does in the few (lousy) photos online. It's pretty beefy at 42mm. There is also a 48mm version of the same watch which is simply gigantic, but that seems to be the trend these days. It keeps accurate time. I just bought mine a week ago so I haven't slammed it around much but it feels really strong so far.

Summary: Bought this product as a gift for Dad. The picture shows a black leather band, but the watch that arrived has a brown leather band. Did I miss the section to change the band color? I wanted the black band...
