Good watch for the money
on February 17, 2007
What made me give this 5 stars was the price comparison. For the money this watch is good quality & carries the tritium dial which is a nice if not essential touch. It's far brighter than the now extinct radium dials.
The case and strap give every impression of being durable although I'm not about to bash it around to find out. The general finish is good and the watch is comfortable to wear.
The white face against the black moulded case looks very good in my opinion. I mention this only because it's difficult to tell from the pictures on the web whether it'll look good in real life, but I think that it does.
I agree with the opinion of the other reviewer about the strap not being worth the money they were asking for replacement. The strap is good enough but not exactly special unless you're fanatical about having the Luminox stamp on the buckle. The practice of limiting the warranty to exclude the strap is a little poor, but I suspect widespread and not specific to Luminox.
One final niggle. If you examine the dial really (and I mean really) closely then you see that the second hand isn't absolutely and perfectly aligned with every second marker on the face. But you'd need to have a serious OCD problem to worry about this on a watch of this price.
Altogether very happy. Good price. Nice watch. Attractive tritium dial.
