This review is from: AVI-8 Hawker Hurricane Men's Watch AV-4011-04 (Watch)
I've had a Hawker Hurricane for several months now, and it's still one of my go-to watches. The cream dial looks very sharp, and the brightly colored details on the inner chronograph dials help to accentuate the retro aesthetic that the AVI-8 brand is after. It's a very elegant design, but it still stands out enough to land you a few compliments from onlookers. I was also impressed by how soft the leather band was out of the box, you won't have to 'break it in' much for it to feel comfortable.

Now for the (slight) issues. The internals used in the HH are not from the 'top shelf' of quartz movements, so keen ears will notice a ticking sound from this watch. It's not as loud as a Timex Weekender, but you will notice it occasionally. Also, the chronograph function on mine has been a bit dodgy...it will run for about 15 minutes or so and then just stop. And when I press the reset button the top and bottom dials don't quite line up to the 12 o'clock position. This was not a huge concern for me though as I rarely need to use the chronograph function. So to sum up this is a very handsome timepiece with some shortcuts taken under the surface to keep things affordable. I was able to get mine right before the price jumped up from $125, so I am very pleased with this watch!
