Here's a few thoughts comparing my three field watches. The pic shows them all lined up out back on the chopping block. The $25 Timex is the lightest of the three, just about like not having one on at all, but then it is battery and not mechanical. Keeps good time. The lume is the worst of the three, but the indiglo is amazing and more than makes up for it. Cool watch, though absolutely a direct rip off from the Hamilton, imitation, flattery, you know the drill. For the money, a nice looking and functioning watch. Next is the beige Seiko 5 I had on here before. Ordered it off the computer for Just under $100, and that included the brown leather strap. Keeps good time too, but is twice the weight of the Timex. Best lume of the three, by far. Neat that it has the day of the week showing, although I can't quite seem to get it set so it changes at the right time, and often I look down and it has gone to the French rather than the English, which I don't mind so much, but it is funky. The smallest of the three, which I think looks more proportional with my scrawny wrist. I really like the beige dial better than the black too. The Hamilton and the Timex both come as the same models but with beige faces, but for some reason the H is $200 more expensive than the black one, and the T is currently unavailable. The Hamilton I recently got used, and it no longer had the original strap, but this green cordura thing. I'll probably order a leather strap for it. Lume is better than the T but not as good as the S5. About the same weight as the S5 too. It is the 38mm version of the Khaki, which is about as big as I would want to wear, that Citizen Skyhawk I had was neat, but just too dang klunky on me, and too complicated too, more suited to a multi effects unit person than Boss and TS on the pedalboard. I like being able to see the guts of the watch in through the glass on the back, see the moving spring and the gears, and the S5 shows it's guts too. The Hamilton seems to have the most reflective glass, and combined with the highest gloss dial, despite costing three times more than the Seiko, is the hardest to read. But dang, it's just a cool looking watch, and is Swiss, though just the base model ETA movement. Seems to keep good time too. Seems like if it was being made as a watch to actually be used in a military setting, it would have flat paint and not so reflective glass. I like them all, but think of the three, the Seiko is the best value. For under $100 you get a great working automatic mechanical watch, and in your choice of four colors too. The small crown tucked down at he 4:00 position is smart, and makes it more comfy on the wrist. Oh well, turns out I like looking at the Hamilton better than I like wearing it. Turns out watches are like guitars, nice to have more than one, some are better to look at than play, the more you have the more you want.
