  • Not your grandfathers watch

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    -High contrast, allows for ease of reading

    -Unique design

    -Low price

    -Conversation starter / Icebreaker

    -still has traditional markings about the face so it could still be used as a makeshift compass should you get lost in the middle of nowhere.

    Cons:

    -strap is fairly "cheap" looking

    -strap is too small (to be fair I am a rather large guy and it is snug at the second notch)

    -kind of difficult to read at first, gives approximate time (5 second incriments for seconds and minutes, half-hour incriments for hours in 24hr format [01:00, 01:30, 02:00, 02:30...]

    -no light or "glow" printing, hard to read in the dark.

    OtherThoughts:

    -this watch gives decent time

    -I think the seconds dial would be more functional if it were hash-marked instead of numbered, i guess you can just count the ticks if you really need to time something.

    -battery life should be decent since there is no light.

    Bottomline:

    This watch really caught my attention when i saw it on the DealExtreme site. this watch will definately get you some questions. I have never seen a time piece with this style of movement, it is very unique indeed!
