Love the interchangeable bands and locking stem. Easy to change date. Easy to see. Looks good with classic styling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by houser52 Great watch so far
Keep in mind that I have only had the watch for a week but have worn it everyday since.
I have been wearing a wrist watch for over 50 years from a lot of different brand names. None of those watches were ever the huge or fancy watches that are popular nowadays but just normal sized, everyday watches.
In my opinion this regular size Vintage Field Watch is the perfect size and look for any occasion. With a simple band change it looks great wearing a suit, jeans or shorts.
The brushed stainless finish looks great. The watch face is clean and not too cluttered. I don't need to check my heart rate, temperature, time laps, stopwatch or nothing else. I just need to see what time it is. It's very easy to see the hands and date against the bright white face.
The illumination is good and still visible the next morning after sleeping all night. I can actually see the time when I wake before daylight.
I set the time when I first received it and it hasn't gained or lost a second. So, it's keeping good time.
As time passes I'll see how it holds up. So far, I'm well satisfied.

Bought this watch for my husbands at Christmas, as he's been wanting it for a while. The crown (the piece you turn to change the time) came off and Ll Bean immediately replaced it, no questions asked. The watch is very beautiful and classic looking. The re have been no problems with the replacement!!

I like the watch. The bands that come with it are significant and I expect them to last a long time. I like that the crown screws down into place. Sturdy and very easy to read. Four stars because I had expectations that the second hand land precisely on the tick marks. I had a Seiko 25 years ago that did and I just loved that. This watch face says Swiss made and for what they charge and 25 years to perfect the technology I'm a little disappointed about not landing on the tick marks. If I'd gone to store I may have looked at the other stock to see if they were all like this or it's limited to this one. It's hard being a perfectionist sometimes!

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.
