This is a serious piece of timekeeping machinery. Yeah, it’s quartz, but the Rambo factor of the watch earns the term “serious” in my book.
The PVD finish is well-executed and blacks out nicely. I was flipping channels the other day and came across a re-run of American Chopper on the Discovery channel and they were building the Commanche bike, based on military helicopter designs. This watch is like that bike – dark, foreboding, serious, and with a lot of attitude.
The face is busy, but is easy to read and the complications are easy to use. There is a screw-locked crown and pushers and screw-in back. The lume is good, although it’s not like a Luminox where you can mark out an LZ and signal Hueys in the middle of the night.
This watch is feature rich. There is a full chronograph with 1/10th second, 60 minutes, and 12 hour elapsed time with lap time. It runs on a ETA 251.262 quartz movement and is water resistant to 330m/1000 feet.
The buckle is expandable deployment and will pop out from your normal size to a larger size to accommodate a wetsuit.
The lumed hands are strong, sword-style with excellent visibility. The bezel is unidirectional, ratcheted 0-60 countdown and 360-degree compass heading marker bezel. I don’t have much experience with bezels, but I do have to say that the movement of this one feels a tad cheap. It feels “plastic-y” to me. This may be normal and I wouldn’t mark a lot off for it, but for the price they could have added a better bezel.
The weight is 6.2 ounces and you definitely know this watch is on your wrist, but in my opinion, that???s a good thing with a timepeice of this nature. I get a lot of queries about the watch and it???s perfect with a black cord sweater, dark blue jeans, pea coat, and black knit cap. With an outfit like that, and a watch like the UDT, you???ll feel like Mack Bolan, and you can pretend that the cellphone in your coat pocket is really a Colt Python as you stride amongst the bad guys.
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.
