The solid titanium A-2T Original Classics strike the right balance between tradition and innovation. The rugged U.S. patented 40 mm case design is manufactured from solid titanium. a high performance alloy we believe to be the best material for a watch case. The A-2T Original Classics feature a clean classic dial that is easy to read. A watch that is ready for the rigors of the day.
This watch kills the Timex in several areas: -The Timex is NOISY and this watch is silent. Seriously - I couldn't concentrate and neither could my co-worker in the cubicle farm. -The Timex strap pulled on my arm hair; this design doesn't have that problem -The Timex requires battery-consuming Indiglo; the feature stopped working when I tried to smooth out all the rough edges of the watch (which were cutting into my skin) with sandpaper - I think a grit of sand got in and blocked the crown from going all the way in. -I mentioned that the entire Timex has sharp edges.
-The SUPER Luminous watch face is AMAZING! I can read the...
... and so far this one is fairing well. Digging as small a hole in the yard to install a pressure relief valve this past weekend marked the case a little, but the crystal is unmarked while my arm has plenty of scratches from the rocks we grow around here. Also, I accidentally dropped it face first onto a concrete floor from about four feet up and it never missed a tick. So, one week into owning it and I'm happy. Hope I stay that way.
If I could make changes, here is what I would change: 1) I wish it had tritium gas hands because I miss being able to see what time it is in the wee hours of the morning. [EDIT] Uhm, turns out that the hands do keep glowing, but my vision without glasses means that I can't see the hands. So, when barely awake, my not being able to read the hands was translated by my sleep deprived brain as their not glowing. If you can see fine up close, this will not be a problem for you - those hands glow.
Great watch. I like the fact it has a screw down crown so it can't accidentally get popped open and then you go sticking your hand the water and it gets wet. I had a Hamilton field watch and it didn't have a screw down crown. Well the crown popped open and moisture got inside it.
The watch is light in weight. The band seems to be made rugged however, there was some rough spots on the band which was irritating my wrist. I switched it out with a different NATO strap. Problem solved. I might eventually switch out to a leather NATO in the future. The watch face looks nice, clean and easy to read. It's not a blingy watch that grabs attention. It's a plain classic watch that looks clean and masculine.
No watch pin springs on this baby. It has a permanent bar that the watch band goes through. This watch won't fall off your wrist. A great watch to add to your collection.
