+ beveled lugs
+ bezel looks great
+ some have said the dial is cluttered and of course there’s a lot going on, it’s a diver chrono with pano date and it’s still easier to read than many straight Chronos
+ pano date!
+ overall weight
+ bracelet build
+ crown works really well
+ lug ends line up perfectly with the bracelet edge
+ thickness appropriate to the overall size
+ bezel play is reasonable
+ bezel movement is very good
+ Chrono second hand lines up
⁃ I don’t know how I feel about the date wheel, it looks plastic and I know it’s all plastic but
⁃ bombe lugs
⁃ Basic machine beveling
⁃ micro adjustment & pins
⁃ but it does feel like the threading is quite fine which I always worry a little bit about at in this price range
⁃ if you for get to screw down your chrono plungers the use at your own risk as this is no Seamaster
⁃ warranty card only available online
3 o’clock sub register tracks 24 hour Time?
Comparatively – compared to watch’s in the say sub $2k CAD range the feel of this $300 spinnaker is excellent, it feels and looks like a quality watch on the wrist.
Overall – if I were to recommend an inexpensive watch or gifting a watch to a non enthusiast friend this would rank highly. It deports itself highly and unless you know and care about all the enthusiast nuances then I’d say it’s a great choice for your wrist; and even fir an enthusiast as a “beater” or daily or traveler or whatever you want to call it I feel like this is a stand out choice.
Enjoy my trash photos, just couldn’t get the lighting to go my way.
