Subtly unique May 9, 2018
Reviewer: Tom Anstead from Alexandria, KY United States  
To me, this watch looks gorgeous in its YouTube video. But in person, it's merely excellent. I think the reason is because so much light reflects off its domed crystal.  It distracts from the beauty of the face.  Also the strap, which is almost a cognac color on video, is a dull dry brown in person.   Now on to the good points.  What a great looking dial!  Techne has indeed reinterpreted the aviator watch, instead of just slavishly producing their own model.  And they did it by just making a few subtle changes, such as leaving out most of the numerals and including the absolutely sharp Small Seconds dial.  I never considered an aviator/pilot watch until I saw this.  The brushed steel case and onion-shaped crown look great as well.  Also, 39.5mm is the exact right size.  Lume is decent.  Good price, easy ordering and fast shipping from Marc at Island Watch.  If you don't like aviator watches or even (especially?) if you do, you should definitely check this model out. 4.5 stars. -T.A.
