This watch took about a month of steady wearing to bring out its subtle virtues. The Swiss have a well deserved reputation for watches and for precision engineering in general. This model of an Infantry Swiss Army Officer's watch will not harm that reputation. At first it seemed a little bulky and heavy but that soon passed. I realized it was due to my regular habit of wearing a somewhat lighter Omega Constellation Automatic everyday for years. This watch is a marvel of meticulous craftsmanship. Every feature from front to back is hand turned to tolerances of 1/10,000th. of an inch as opposed to the normal 1/1,000th. inch standards commonly used in even high end watches. Even the winding crown & stem functionality is impressive. The sapphire crystal front reveals an olive drab dial w/ yellow accents that are beautiful to the information-seeking eye and flawlessly constructed. The classy Arabic numerals around the face are aligned perfectly. The seconds' hash marks are perfect too. A narrow, northerly window gently arcs to frame the weekday full-name display that is...well...plain flawless. The back bezel is graced with a round crystal center-window that displays the working innards of this 25 jewel, 2834-Swiss automatic movement as it ticks away in all its glory. **
And, of course, it tells the time just fine and looks & feels comfortable with a supple brown leather wrist strap that breaks-in nicely. On the whole, if you want "bling" this isn't the watch for you considering its moderately pricey cost at about $500, but if you want the kind of uncompromising, understated technical accomplishment that has kept "Made in Switzerland" an coveted labeling subtext, then the Victorinox Swiss Army #241396 Infantry Vintage Day/Date (Mechanical) Watch is for you. I guarantee that you'll grow to appreciate it like a good folding knife or a favorite flyrod.
**(The one thing I don't understand is the reference "Swiss-quartz mechanical movement" in the Amazon product description---it can't be both a mechanical, jeweled movent and a quartz movement simultaneously. I called Amazon watch FAQs and the lady gave some "baloney-filled" explanation like she knew all about it but it made no technical sense at all...and I know watches. If anyone knows the answer, leave a comment. Lary9)
[THIS HAS SINCE BEEN RESOLVED. AMAZON'S DESCRIPTION IS INCORRECT AND CONFUSED IN REFERRING TO IT AS A QUARTZ MOVEMENT.]
Fit and finish are top-notch and I couldn't be any happier, a very solid piece. The genuine Swiss movement is exactly what you'd expect, durable and accurate (as automatic watches go), with a beautiful sweeping seconds hand that really adds to the elegance. I can't stop watching the movement, it's mesmerizing! The brown leather strap is very nicely made and goes very well with the olive green dial. I have ordered a butter-fly deployant for it to help keep the strap from getting worn out, but that's really just a personal preference. The lum is bright and long lasting and the full date window is a real highlight! I have pretty small wrists but the 44mm case does not look too bulky or awkward, it almost gives it a pilot watch feel, and I mean that in a good way!
You wont be disappointed with this great watch, it's great price for this top quality construction and Swiss ETA 2834-2 movement that you might easily pay 10x for!
Now, that said, know what you're buying: a MECHANICAL watch.
Springs and gears will never keep time like a quartz crystal. Even a $20k rolex will not be as accurate as a $40 casio, but that's not the reason to get a mechanical watch. You get a mechanical watch because you want the engineering involved in a fine swiss movement, and this watch delivers. Give it a few months to break in and she's plenty accurate. After 5 years, mechanical watches should be taken in to get a tuneup, kind of like a car. So, understand what you're buying when you get a watch with this sort of movement. Mine is very consistent. I've never had to wind it since I move around enough to keep it wound, and I have an office job, so it doesn't take much. I set it every two weeks or so to time.gov and she stays on track better than most mech watches double the price. Runs a weee bit fast, but still pretty darn good, especially for a mech. Highly recommended.
