    Great Watch - Until the band needs replacement - 2/22/2014

    Orvis insists that you mail the entire watch to a company in Illinois, just to get the watch band replaced. They won't just send a wrist band. Ridiculous, lousy excuse for servicing the customer.

    Zambezi watch-Great value - 1/14/2013
    By: from Houston, TX

    I'm surprised by a previous customer's comment saying the watch was cheap and scratches easily. I have had this watch for 12 years now and wear it 90% of the time. It's has had at least 3 batteries changed and 3 replacement straps. I wear this to work, hunting & fishing and get it wet often. There are absolutely no scratches on the crystal. It's simple & easy to read. I would highly recommend it.

    2nd try Failed too! - 2/11/2012
    By: from Sarasota

    The first Zambezi Watch ( a gift) lasted approx 1.5 years, then the stem and crown fell off. The luminous hands had failed at about 6 months. The original gift giver decided to replace it and took the broken watch to a local Orvis Store. ( A WATCH SHOP HAD ESTIMATED $65 TO REPAIR IT) The store had no Zambezis in stock and so issued a gift card and ordered a a new one from HQ on line. Since it was to be sent to my winter home, there was addittional tax required above the Gift Card retrurn amount.The watch was on back order and took almost 2 weeks to receive. The packaging was great, but the watch hands would not glow in the dark after repeated direct sunlight exposures to activate. I plan to return it to my local Orvis store for a refund when I return in the spring! There won't be a third try for me.

    Very happy with this simple elegant watch. Accurate and durable. Wear it playing tennis and out fishing. Reliable performance with a good match to all my tan clothing.

    disappointing - 2/6/2010

    I bought a Zambezi watch a few years ago and loved it. It had a calmer face layout, and had a glow button that would light the entire face. Sadly, it died, and Orvis sent this version of the Zambesi to replace it. The only thing the same was the watchband. This one does not have the glow button, and the watchface looks much cheesier to me. I hope that Orvis will bring back the original model sometime. THAT one I'll buy; THIS one I sent back.

    Looks good but bad quality - 12/14/2007

    I loved the look of this watch and was eager to purchase it but was disappointed when I received it. It feels cheap and has not worn well. I'm not sure about the sapphire crystal being "the most durable available." It scratched very easily. I don't even wear it anymore because it has deteriorated so badly in the 2 months or so I wore it. So, this is a great looking watch in the pictures but I wasn't impressed once I received the product. I love everything from Orvis but I think this product should be discontinued. I would try purchasing a more popular model like the field chrono.

    Basic, Goodlooking Watch - 10/5/2007

    Received this watch as a gift and enjoy wearing it. Downside is cannot read the time in low light. Upside is that it is a handsome watch, size is suitable for a man or a woman.
