Momentum 4 Titanium
on September 16, 2013
I made an extensive search to try to find an analog/digital watch that had some of the quality of the Brietling Aerospace without the $4000 price.
There are few choices once you leave the G Shock versions, and all the metal choices were so inferior at least in appearance that I decided there was just no market for a quality looking watch with dual functions.
The Momentum Format 4 is the only high quality choice I could find. It is more expensive than other brands, but it has much more substance.
- Pretty light weight. The titanium case is thicker than I wished for but consistent with contemporary styles.
- The dial is high quality so the watch has a fine timepiece look which includes the numbers, the minute and hour hands and the sweep orange and white second hand.
- The LCD windows are refined meaning they do not look like they were cheaply punched out, and they nearly disappear when using the energy saving feature. It gives the dial a fine watch analog look.
- It's a little hard to set. The instructions were written by someone who really didn't care if they made any sense. Among other discoveries I made while messing around with the functions, I found that if I simply changed the date, the watch knew what the new day of the week would be, Monday, Tuesday, etc. I'm not sure how far down the calendar that would work however.
It's not a Brietling. It's much thicker, does not have as many functions, digital and analog are not automatically in sync, but it's almost as good looking, works very well so far, and it's less than 10% of the cost. Not bad. The only discount I could find was at Amazon.
That's my story. I recommend the watch enthusiastically.
