For those not remembering their physics class, that’s one of the rules of momentum. Why dredge up those dusty memories? As in intro to today’s watch, of course. I want to focus your attention on the Aeromax by Momentum. Now, if you’re familiar with Momentum at all, you’re likely aware that most of their line consists of quartz models – and this one is no exception. So, mechanical watch purists may shy away, but I think this watch is worthy of your attention.
For starters, you’ve got a bold, 45mm case that’s made of titanium, so it’s not going to weigh your wrist down (not to mention be extremely durable). Adding to that durability is a sapphire crystal, 200m water resistance, and a lithium power cell. In other words, this watch is going to go through your daily routine with aplomb.
Taking a closer look at the dial, you’ll notice a second hand making its way around and an oversized date display, which should keep things nice and easy to read. Should you want to track things in 24-hour time, this watch has you covered as well. You’ve got a 24 hour subdial (I believe tied to the main time shown), as well as a retrograde GMT indicator at the bottom of the dial, which can show a second time zone.
While quartz may not have the appeal these days that mechanical watches do, I would hazard a guess that this would be a solid travelling companion if you find yourself out and about across the country, or other countries. It’s not cheap for a quartz (hovering around $320 on Amazon), but I believe that’s mostly due to the titanium case. If the price isn’t a hindrance for you, though, I feel that this is an eminently readable and functional watch that would serve you well.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
