Summary: I love the watch, but when I received it the band was defective- the silicone was torn out at the buckle- and Amazon would not exchange it because the price had gone up $70 between the day I purchased and the watch and the day I received it, so refund was my only option with them. Wenger does not warranty the band, so I had yo purchase another band from their website. With shipping it cost over $45, turning a great deal into a marginal one.
Summary: Very high quality watch. LED are brighter than pictures show. I thought a previous review stating the blue covers on the buttons was odd until I tried to remove them. Wow, it was a pain, he was correct. Beautiful watch that easily catches eyes and gets compliments. I own many high quality watches and this is both utilitarian, and has a classic look for using at work. I recommend this watch, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Summary: This is a nice watch. It looks good, feels good on your wrist and has a good price. I do not know whey they bother illuminating the number and not the hands as well. The illumination is not very strong either. The LED compass, date, time and day light up very brightly. I am not sure about the compass. You have to calibrate it constantly to get an accurate reading. It is easy to do but still a pain.
Summary: Overall, this watch is great. Everything on it works wonderfully; and it has taken a pretty good beating and it is still working perfectly. The only little "nit-pick" I have, is that the little blue plastic protective sheets on the function buttons, that are supposed to be removed after purchase, are a REAL pain to remove.
Summary: The watch is good-looking and solidly built. Two things keep me from rating it 5 stars. One, I am beginning to question the accuracy of the compass. However, I'll give Wenger the benefit of the doubt (for the time being) to see if it is something I am doing; but something is awry. Two, I agree with over reviewers; the watch band is pretty ridiculous - too short and too thick.
Summary: This is a great watch for all types of people. The digital compass is very accurate and good for the outdoors men. Four stars because the watch is quite thick but not too thick and the band is silicone, I will be replacing with a nylon band. Over all great buy and very good quality like aways from Wenger.
Summary: Pros: -It is heavy, durable, and has a quality feel to it. It's a Wenger of course -The compass feature is awesome and it works fairly accurately. -Easy to follow instructions for setting time and compass -Accuracy is excellent Cons: -Very weak illumination on the numbers even when charged by external light sources. -No illumination on the hands at all, then why would you illuminate the numbers? -No way to tell time in the dark aside from pressing the digital time.
Summary: This one has intrigued me for a while. I have not been disappointed. Very good looking and serious watch. The LED displays pop out in the dark as visibly as could be wished. I note others have had complaints with the strap. I replaced my strap with a 22m/m nylon NATO type immediately upon receipt, so I have nothing useful to add there. I opted for the free shipping, and it stated that this shipping is not fast-and it wasn't.
Summary: The Wenger Nomad is the most stealthy ana/digi watch I own or have seen. Except for the four pushers, 2 on each side, you would never guess it has digital capabilities. The sun ray black face is beautiful, with stylish, easy to read hands. A push and any button reveals a large easy to read, red digital display, with all expected functions, time, day, and date.

Summary: This is probably the best watch I have owned to date. It's extremely accurate, looks good, and the LED is great in dark conditions. The only slight drawback is the silicone band. Remember to wash it with soap and water. I experienced some skin rash on my wrist after using it a few days. This rash, however went away after I cleaned the band. I purchased my watch at [...
