Watch is fine, but the bracelet is not as good as the one I have on another Victorinox chrono quartz, feels more like a Seiko bracelet ( but with solid end links ), same for the clasp. Sadly lumes on numerals are weak.

Still a nice ( and small ) Victorinox auto.
PS: Price was $249.99.
How does this compare to Hamilton's Field Automatic Watch?
Is there any youtube review on this watch? I've found black/brown but no reviews on this particular silver model.
This exact watch is available with a two year warranty on Amazon for $299.99. The warranty is provided by a third party vendor.
Still no titanium watch. 😩
I'm in. 38mm + 2824 + Victorinox quality, that's a great combination ( and dial is really nice for a military ).
I am 6.75 wrist, my wife is 6... Try to buy unisex type watches that either can wear.
Some boxes that need to be checked... Under 40mm, check Lug 20mm, check allows for a variety of bands that can be interchanged without buying multiple sizes.
Reasonable priced, how does this compare to some others with similar size (37-38), lug (20)... Seiko SARB 017 Alpinist, Sapphire Seiko SARB 033 (black) or 035 (khaki), Sapphire Seiko SKX013, 37 mm diver, Hardlex Seiko SNE049 (blue) or 039 (black), 37 mm solar quartz, Hardlex Citizen BM8180, 37 mm Eco Drive, Mineral but has 18 mm lug. Great EDC value watch under $100 my opinion.
Would like this Victorinox more as quartz with lower price for a field watch but still price point is under the SARB lineup

I have a Sarb033 and am thinking of going for this drop...the blue dial and features are really tempting at this price.
Alora
Better grab a SARB quick--they're discontinuing the line.
I guess it's just me but I usually find victorinox designs very boring. Nothing that stands out as "wrong" about them, but at the same time nothing that stands out as "wow" either. As such, they leave me a little cold...
Aleskb
Agreed they are conservative. However I like that, because I don't want my colleagues focusing on my watch as much as what I am saying. I have found flashy designs can be hugely distracting.
This has to be the best looking Victorinox I have ever seen. That said, I am not buyng any more "affordable watches" until I sell some of my collecion. I need to stop buying so many watches in this price range and actually start pulling the trigger on more expensive pieces.

I have a 36mm DJ that I use as my daily watch. However, I have this watch and I use it at night (because my DJ doesn't have lume) and on the weekends (because it more casual looking).
Feel free to PM me pics. Also I suggest against getting a Datejust simply because they are overrated. Look into actually going to Switzerland and getting a timepiece there! Otherwise Seiko Spring Drive for amazing movements, or look into RGM's engine turned styles...
Does this watch have a screw down crown?
Synnyster
I am interested in that as well!
Synnyster
No screw-down crown.
Hello. I Received mine yesterday. This is a really beautiful watch and I would be really happy ... if only it worked... But the the visible semicircular rotor which winds the mainspring is blocked... I have no idea what caused this malfunction. Too many long time without any movement ? Big shock during transport ? Magnetization ? Anyway, I reported the DOA to MD. No luck for my first purchase...
Where is this item shipped from? do they ship to China?
Any idea of ref. number?
And what about warranty?

MD support pages state that unless a drop’s page explicitly states there is a warranty, then there is no warranty
Yes I got my watch replaced
I see that some of the other drops do mention about warranty on their description pages, but not this one. Does that mean that there will be no warranty at all for this drop?
This seems like a really good price though...
Veinlk
Correct, there isn't a warranty for this drop, it is covered only by Massdrop's 30-day return policy. As you noted in another of your posts in this thread, unless a manufacturer's warranty is explicitly stated in the drop page info then there isn't one. Caveat emptor.
How much is shipping to Belgium, any idea
Clone
to Poland about $4.50.
i have this watch in the black ice color. Its awesome. Totally worth it and far than the Seiko at this price.
Mine is from an AD so paid a lot more when this was part of the current line up.

Post a photo please. The crystal have AR coating?

There she is. Bit dirty since i did some drywall work today. The strap isn't stock its a single piece of horween latigo in navy.
I have some experience with photography and I would guess that the Sapphire is single coated. Actually for a watch with a sapphire crystal and an ETA movement its a steal, AR coated or not. Not a lot of reflections compared to my old citizen. Its definitely not multi-coated like a Fortis or something.
I wear this watch far more often than my Tags. Really like how solid it is and the smaller size is nicer for every day.
This is a nice looking watch. Its the perfect size too! If I had the money, I would get one.
Nice watch and great size at 38mm, but the price is a little off the mark - better than the Seiko 5 mess recently but still not exactly what I expect from massdrop
Does anyone know if this item can be shipped to Australia
jackyqkk
Jackyqkk I have one on order to Australia and this is my 3rd watch theough MD. So a resounding Yess to your question
finally a nice watch and not at 40mm+, super nice to see an simple attractive piece at that sweet spot of size (ie 34-39mm). i know they're trying to hit a price point but the white date window ruins it, they should have color matched it to the dial or the color of the numerals, ruins an otherwise great looking dial, and honestly, not sure it even needed that date complication, would have been even cooler w no date.
Amazon offered this watch for $350 and another website for $385.. You're not really saving. But the 28800vph for this price range is pretty neat. https://zabiva.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=189834&gclid=Cj0KCQjwub7NBRDJARIsAP7wlT9fc433fHfJSliFh7W8AA59Qj-M3NSyBWNr_sYrnvwfoBEK58C2UN8aAmd9EALw_wcB
ugh that's so nice... if only i had the 300 bucks to drop right now
Damn i'd have jumped on this if they were 40mm + :(
Awesome! 38mm. Deal maker.
Goddamnit, if I didn't own the same watch in gunmetal brown I'd be all over this drop...
Brickbats
Would you be so kind to tell me if the crown screws in?
nameless
No it does not.
Completely agree about the case diameter and I was confused by the power reserve being the same number so I'm glad you pointed it out.
Damn.. 38mm, deal breaker..
