HEMEL 24 Automatic Military-Styled Watch Bead Blasted Case and Sapphire Crystal #HM1B

This new HEMEL 24 watch has both 12 and 24 hour markings on the matte black dial. The domed sapphire crystal provides an elegant look while at the same time providing scratch resistance so your watch stays looking new. And, the exhibition window on the back of the watch is also sapphire (most companies use a mineral crystal in this price range).

This 316L bead blasted stainless steel case is 40mm in diameter and 13mm thick making very wearable for just about anyone. Inside is a quality Citizen-Miyota 9015 automatic movement that is self-winding, hand windable, and hackable. C3 SuperLuminova is used on the hands and hour makers for reading time in the dark. C3 glows with a bright greenish hue when charged by a strong light. A heavy duty nylon strap is included that features metal grommets and both black and orange keepers for a unique look. Lug width is 20mm. The watch is water resistant to 100 meters or 330 feet and has a screw-down crown.

NOTE: The lugs on the case are curved slightly to better hug your wrist.

Lovely interpretation of the classic field watch. June 23, 2018
Reviewer: Big Moustache from Switzerland  
Based on classic post-WWII US military watches, but updated with an excellent Miyota 9015 movement (running at +6 s./day out of the box), sapphire cristal, 10atm water resistance, very decent lume and a pretty original curvy kettle-style case very much along 1930s-40s streamlined design lignes. The case and lugs curves fit quite snug on my 8-inch wrist.
Only minus points are that the thick and stiff nylon strap is a tad short for and 8 inches wrist and has holes that are too far apart from one another for perfect fit on my wrist, and the somewhat rough operation of the screwdown crown. (The former was easily swapped with a decent NATO with matching bead blasted hardware and the latter was largely cured by sparingl applying silicone grease.)
