The design does limit you slightly in terms of band replacements, the movement isn't specified, and the printing on the face isn't as sharp as some high end watches - but this has become a regularly worn watch for me, and I really think it's a great option.
Design and Case
The 4:00 position the crown is located at goes a long way to ensuring it doesn't dig into your wrist, especially while working or doing any sort of physical activity.
No spring bars here - these are machined as a single piece with the case. This should make it nearly impossible to pop these out, but it will of course limit your band options.
The case also projects a fair bit above the sapphire crystal, which should help protect it from some bumps.
Face and Lume
True to the field watch tradition, the face is simple and easily readable, with large Arabic numerals for the hour markers, and smaller 24 hour markings inside those. I find the inclusion of the brand, model number, case material, movement, crystal material, and water resistance add up to make the center of the face a bit busy, but not so much that it hinders visibility.
Printing on the face is very clear, but you can see some very slight roughness around the edges if you get close enough. This is in no way visible at arm's length.
Movement and Complications
- Deep-set sapphire crystal, screw down crown and case back, all-titanium construction, and solid bars all combine for a package that seems incredibly durable
- Versatile design
- 4:00 crown position is much more comfortable than the usual 3:00
- I appreciate the lume, date, and 24 hour markings
- Fixed lugs limit band options
- Movement isn't specified
