REVIEW: Gavox Curtiss P-40 Military Time
Today brings us to the second sample that Gavox sent over for us to review, which is also part of their Curtiss P-40 lineup. While yesterday’s example had a more simple presentation, today’s watch has the addition of one of my favorite complications.
That, of course, is a 24-hour indicator (not a true GMT, as this is synched to the main time display) which is plain handy to have when setting the time on a watch, or if you’re travelling internationally.
The other design change you’ll notice on the dial is that the Arabic numerals have been removed, which cleans things up a nice bit considering the addition of the second dial. This presents as a very clean and balance dial – I do think I prefer it over the example from yesterday.
Here, we do keep the same case (40mm by 8mm thick) that we saw yesterday, housing the Seiko VD77 movement, which is how the 24-hour subdial gets added into the mix.
If I were to choose between the two watches (as they are very similar), I’d likely opt for this model, as the dial is a bit more balanced, and I simply like the 24-hour indicator. Pricing starts at just over $230, and opting for the limited edition PVD case is only a small increase.
