The first thing that I noticed about this watch was its weight and its sturdiness. The watch is built solid and tough. The bezel has no play in it and makes a smooth and satisfying movement as you turn it counter-clockwise with discernible clicks. The band is sturdy and holds the watch in place nicely. The markers are nicely lit in the dark; they are not too bright and provide enough contrast to tell the time.
-Solid bezel that unilaterally turns in the right direction and holds its place.
-The watch is built like a tank and has a heft to it.
-The crown screws down and enables no water intrusion.
-The sapphire crystal lays even with the bezel and doesn't catch on anything.
-I would have like to see just a bit larger face/bezel. The numbers are a bit small for old, tired eyes.
-The numbers are gray, not off-white, so the numerals blend in and sometimes requires a second glance to tell the time.
-I would have preferred the night vision tubes to lay aligned with the numbers instead of perpendicular. Each tube is 3 seconds wide.
-My biggest gripe is the date window. It is too small; you can't really see the date. Make it bigger or get rid of it.
