    Cons:
    - Thermal path from the led to the aluminum reflector is good, but maybe is not too great from the reflector to the exterior. I...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Cons:
    Pretty much anything else. Watch case and legs are NOT stainless steel, but a soft alloy with not enough chrome plating to full...
