I like what I've seen so far, but I'll have to wait. The first watch I got had a loose minute hand that wobbled from side to side as the watch was rotated. I'm pretty sure that's not normal. Note: I'm not talking about the same phenomenon that affects the seconds hand on nearly every digital analog watch. Those are notoriously wobbly and misaligned even on very expensive marques.
This watch is a little bigger than I'm used to (don't know what the reviewer below means by "small") at 41 mm, but I think it'll grow on me. Rolex has a standard of 35mm for their dress watches and Victorinox is about ideal at 38mm. But, hey...bigger is better, right? It sure is easy to read.
Note that the watch pictured above is NOT the same watch that Amazon is shipping. You can see the actual model on Wenger's web site. The bezel is slightly bulkier and the numbers are larger and more blocky in appearance. The band is also different. I actually prefer the look of the one Amazon pictures, but that's not the one you're going to get.
My requirements are rather simple and "simple" leads the short list of my requirements. First, I do not like a lot of whistles and bells. I have no desire to know the time in each capitol of the world. I do not need a watch that is waterproof to 10,000 feet. I could care less as to the phases of the moon. I do not need an alarm system to remind me of appointments nor do I want something that takes an advanced degree en engineering or computer science to set date, time and what ever.
Secondly, I want a watch that is unobtrusive - clean looking - no glitter or bling. I want to be able to see the numbers and, both time and date. I do not want any funny little "sub-dials" cluttering up the face. If the watch appears even slightly pretentious I want nothing to do with it. But hey, that is just me.
Third, and this is probably one of the more important features I look for, is a watch that actually keep reasonable time consistently. I hate setting and resetting a watch. The numbers, both time and date, are easy to read and glow nicely in the dark.
Fifth - I absolutely hate paying more than one hundred dollars for a watch. I am hard on watches. I either break them, loose them or generally bang them up. To pay big buck for something that I am surly bound to destroy, for me, is a complete waste of money.
The watch being reviewed here meets all my requirements.
Now I grant you, like another reviewer here I would prefer that this watch was that of the original and well made Swiss Army watch by Victorinox. I had one at one time and loved it. I destroyed it...well, actually an ostrich I was attempting to load in a trailer destroyed it, (ripped the band off and ripped the winding stem off), but the ostrich was only being an ostrich and I probably would have fought just as hard if someone was trying to load me in some strange contraption - I hold no ranker against the bird...the emergency room bill was large, but I have good insurance. Anyway, I would have preferred to have the Victorinox but I was an am unwilling to pay the price. The watch being reviewed here, for me, was an excellent compromise.
This watch is a bit larger that watches I normally wear but I am getting use to that. It is clean looking, attractive and so far (about three months now) it has kept perfect time.
I must admit to have had some trepidation about the leather band. I spend a lot of time at the gym and biking, and truth be told, sweat like a pig. So far though the band has held up well and the staining is at a minimum. When and if the band gets to looking too funky (through no fault of the band itself), I will replace it with something more suited for my lifestyle.
I like this watch and am completely satisfied with it. If I can get two or three years use out of it without destroying it I will be happy...if it lasts longer, well that for me, is just extra gravy.
Only the hands glow at a visible strength for more than a few seconds - in fact it lasts several minutes, but the REST of the indices, numerals etc. do not and are only visible even in total darkness for maybe 60 seconds.
I recently learned that the only "glowing" type of watches that have strong and long-lasting visible glow are ones that use "Tritium tubes" for their glow illumination.
The watch itself is nice enough and has a good look, but it's not the MIL-SPEC watch Wengers' marketing materials make it out to be.
