Precision. Craftsmanship. Multi-functionality.
Many watches have quartz movements and stainless steel cases. But there is one feature only a few timepieces can claim – a pedigree. In 1988 Wenger turned its inimitable hand to that other icon of Swiss craftsmanship - the Swiss Watch. The exacting standards reflected in Wenger Swiss Army knives extend to a collection of multi-functional Swiss-made watches for men and women. It’s no wonder our timepieces are prized the world over for their accuracy, handsome design and authentic craftsmanship. Not to mention the heritage of Swiss innovation that makes all Wenger products legendary.

I'm 6'3" 240lbs, and enjoy a large watch, but don't like a heavy watch for everyday use, and this watch is perfect in that regard. It has a nice large casing, with very nice craftsmanship and finish, but is not heavy at all. The rubber strap is very comfortable and soft, and feels nice against my skin. The style is perfect for everyday use. This watch looks much better in person, and looks great on my wrist.
My only concern is how well the crystal will hold up to my abuse (I tend to be hard on watches). I'm my experience, sapphire and Seiko's "Hardlex" crystals resist scratching very well, and look great even after several years of everyday use. Mineral crystals on the other hand, tend to scratch easily and will have noticeably annoying scratches in a short time. With that said, I've never seen a watch that offers a saphire crystal at this price point, although you can find Seiko watches with Hardlex crystals in this price range.
*p.s., I found a pair of original Wenger black leather straps for $36 plus shipping, having options are great.
I for one am definitely one happycamper!
The watch arrives in a thin metal box and is well-protected. It is surprisingly lightweight, which makes the watch feel cheap in construction. I was expecting something that would have more heft to it. It wasn't immediately apparent in the photograph posted on Amazon, but the watch face has a chronograph style that looks very much like the Stuhrling Octane Concorso watch face. The numbers are large and easy to read, but the date window is very small and narrow and difficult to read. Unlike other watches this one does not have a little magnifier on the crystal to make it easier to read. The watch band is soft rubber. It's plenty large enough to fit a big man's wrist and is easy to fasten. The watch seems to keep good time.
Overall, this Wenger watch is an attractive, lightweight, basic watch. I do not think it is even remotely worth the MSRP of $225 or even the discounted $168 price on Amazon. I own several Invicta watches that I paid half that price for that look and feel much better made. Even at its Gold Box price of $85 I would say there are better ones to consider. Had I seen it in the flesh before purchase I do not think I would have paid more than $50 for this one.
After wearing this watch for a while longer I must confess I like it much better than I originally did and feel compelled to add a star to my review. It's light weight still makes it feel somewhat cheap, but it has kept very good time, and I like the soft rubber band. The hands and numbers illuminate very well in the dark which is a real plus.Read more ›
Its a month old. I have a Tag Heuer with a silicone strap as this one does. That watch has been my "go to" watch for 10 years. I never have had one issue with wearing it every day, even in 120 degree Phoenix summers. HOWEVER---this watch, also Silicone strap. I get a very itchy, ugly skin patch or patches under this watch. Have you ever broke a bone and had a cast on for 2 months? WHen its cut off that smell, and the green skin, and nastiness? Thats what this reminds me of after wearing it for a day or day/night. I dont' know why, and I don't know why it does it but the Tag doesn't, but its a big enough issue that I might have to stop wearing it.
IT keeps PERFECT TIME and date--as most quartz watches do, ---I wanted to add that now that I've used it for a month or so. Thanks

Its a nice watch so far, and I hope it lasts. The band is a bit loose, and I'm not sure what to do about that. I'll have to update later with details.Published 7 months ago by Transatlantique
