This is a very light watch. Carbon reiforced polycarbonate case and bezel. The strap is some comination of rubber, silicone, and polyurethane according to the specs, all I know is that it's pretty comfortable. It has a 60 click bezel that clicks with authority and no play. The best part of course is the tritium. I was pleasantly surprised by the brightness and am convinced that this would pass the conjurer quick glance in a dark car test. In complete darkness this thing is very bright. I usually hate waking up in the middle of the night, but when this is on the dresser, I get a little pleasure looking at the tritium glowing. The tritium tubes are green, except for the 12 O'clock marker which is orange.
Here's a close up of the pip which also has a tritium tube on it. The fact that its 200M WR is nice and I was surprised that it doesn't have a screw down crown.
I like the color combination, and it's a nice size, definitely doesn't look like 45mm. I'm sure the weight and the fact that the bezel is big play a role in it feeling/looking smaller. I only wish the mineral crystal on this one had a little more AR on it, but it isn't bad.
Get to the point
Pros: It's Swiss Made, Light, Tough, Tritium, Price
Cons: I'll try to come up with some
I haven't been able to take a pick of the tritium with my phone, as soon
as I get a good one, I'll post her up. All in all, I think it's a great deal. Thanks for looking.
