I've been fond of field type watches for as long as I can remember. I own about a dozen, so when it was time to choose a birthday gift for a close friend of mine I decided to get her a field watch of her own. Yes, this is a man's watch but I think its small enough that it will look good on a woman too. Especially considering the currently ridiculous style of wearing HUGE watches. When I received this watch in the mail I carefully looked it over and was impressed by both the simplicity and the quality. The watch has solid end lugs so there are no pins to fail. This means you will always have to use one piece straps, but for a field watch this is a good thing. I was very impressed with the machined parts and the band was higher quality than I expected. The crown being at the 4 o'clock position is about one of the smartest things I've ever seen on a watch. The dial is very easy to read and uncomplicated. This watch has no complications and simply tells time...like a good field watch...
I ordered the Bertucci A1S because I was shopping around for a tough field watch with no date options. Unless it is a perpetual, I do not like the idea of wearing out the crown with date adjustments. My take on the watch is as follows;
Pros - Good price for the quality of the watch. The watch looks better than in photos. The stainless steel is of good quality, with no blemishes/stains. - Nylon band is of much higher quality than a nato or zulu strap. - High contrast black dial with white hands makes it very easy to read in low light conditions. - Recessed watch glass is surrounded by the stainless case which protects the glass effectectively. - Screw down crown for a non-diving watch is a rare and welcome feature. - Very light weight, even for a stainless steel watch head. - Quartz so it very acurate.
Cons - Only the hour/minute hands glow brightly, the dial however glows very dimly. - Case could be slightly larger, I...
If you are into simple and sturdy designs this watch is perfect. I think it looks great. I can see all then numbers clearly in low light. I have small wrists. This watch doesn't look gigantic compared to other men's watches I have seen. It is quite thick however. The only caution I would issue is that this watch will not work with regular bands. The canvas strap is basically threaded through the face. A little of a disappointment because I would love to see this watch with a leather band. But despite that this watch is quickly becoming like a trusty pair of sneakers--the "go to" clothes you wear...
