Rated 5 out of 5 by bcsc Easy to read
Love the watch. Looks Great! I needed a new watch (my $20 Timex started to lose time) so I decided to buy a nice watch. This watch was exactly what I was looking for. It is nice looking and is not too large or small. The dial is easy to see. I looked at the 42 mm watch with the leather band but it was backordered so I chose this one. I did not like the bands that came with the watch so I ordered a leather band. This really "dressed up" the watch! FYI the lugs are 20mm so I ordered a 20mm band.

Rated 5 out of 5 by onebulletbill classic styling excellent performance
I purchased my watch about 10 years ago. It has been flawless. I like the classic style that goes back to world war two. The watch is reminiscent of the military watches that were supplied to the American and British troops by such makers as Hamilton, Omega and others. The watch has gotten wet many times and has not been babied at all.
It is a rugged little watch and is compact and light in weight. The styling is classic and understated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kaibab Own three of them
I own one with the interchangeable bands and two others to go with silver and turquoise bands purchased in Arizona. All three work great and if I get another designer band, I will get another LLBean watch to go with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by watchme14 I love this watch!
I bought this watch about 25 years ago and wore it everywhere.. Some how I lost it over the years with moves and all. When I saw it again in the store I knew I had to have it! Love the ability to switch bands although the green is my favorite. The only complaint I have is that this time the small medal band holder came lose and my watch was only being held by one side. I fortunately found it right away and replaced it. If it falls out again, I will then have to have sent back.

Clean clear face, and a date display that is actually easy to change. Reliable in wet weather. A nice watch.
The strap is not wonderful. Works, but is a bit flimsy

Rated 4 out of 5 by technomage1 Classic Field Watch Holds Up Well Even Today
I bought this watch for a deployment to Afghanistan. I wanted something simple and rugged and was curious to see how well a classic design from WWII would hold up in today's military. This watch has held up well, despite being put through some tough conditions. I do like the luminary hands, which enable easy telling of time for a long time after dark. It aslo looks good, simple and clean, and doesn't get hung up when taking gear and armor off like some bulkier watches. I have two main criticisms that prevent it from getting 5 stars. First, the band is huge. I have a smaller wrist so I have to fold the band in over itself through the fabric loop. Also, as others have noted the holes tend to wear over time, making the fit looser.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Freshup Not quite
I thought this watch would be a bit smaller and lighter, but the trend is now toward these sort of exaggerated watches.This is the second watch I bought on "looks" in a catalog or online.The drawback of not being able to physically wear it before buying it makes it a guessing game. However, LLB has great customer service (English speaking American reps) so making a return is really easy. But I am keeping this watch because it is beautiful and I can live with the size and weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 Quick Service
I took my broken LL Bean watch into the local LL Bean store here in New York. They said they would mail me a replacement. To my surprise, the watch showed up 2 days later just ahead of my out of town travel. It's nice to deal with a company that can deliver excellent service.
