Rated 5 out of 5 by lcarothers Best watch ever!
As a middle aged female I need a watch that was easy to see. This watch is perfect. It comes with 2 nylon straps - I am going to try to find a leather strap. They also send a 3pk of extra nylon straps if you like. Oh and the illuminating is amazing. The hands and the hour triangles glow all night. I was at a jewelers with another item for repair and I got a compliment from the staff there on what a nice watch it is - and it is! It is listed as a mans watch but I must say it is perfect for even my smaller wrist. The waterproof feature is perfect, no having to take it off every time you are into dishes or the like. The strap dries quickly. I am allergic to many of the metal watch bands even on expensive watches as I am allergic to nickel. This watch back and the strap latch are not causing me any problem, so I am very happy all around with this watch.

The watch is comfortable although the strap was a bit large. I was looking for a watch that is easy for me to read since I need reading glasses. This watch fills the bill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LETSGOREDSOX Great Watch!!!!
Mine was a gift. It is awesome and love the look and feel. Its classic design and its light weight. The interchangeable straps are nice as well. Only wish they still carried the watch replacement straps in Black/Olive. They sell a three pack now. I wear this watch everyday and its simple and classic design made it my favorite. I appreciate how light weight it is. I would recommend this watch to anyone looking for a new time piece.

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!

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.
