Great piece! -
By: Patrick1836 from Midland, TX
I buy a lot of items from Orvis because it's great quality gear. It always shows up on time (Closest store is about a 5 hour drive, so I order online or direct form the store to save the shipping cost) and as advertised! Most watches these days are big, heavy bulky. This item is a little thicker than some but not so thick that it won't fit under a dress shirt. It has a great band that is nice enough to wear to a business formal occasion and remains functional for most every day wear. The only down side to this watch is that the dark face hides the subdued numerals. This makes it a little difficult to see all the numbers in low light but fine in full day light. I would've given it 4-1/2 stars but could only do hole numbers. I would recommend this item. If you want a little more sportier watch check out the MI6.

I have waited to get this watch for a very long time, it is very impressive.
Excellent Watch -
By: WellsL from Portland, Maine
Excellent craftsmanship, refined details, simply a remarkable piece. Easy to adjust and the chronograph works perfectly.
Gave it another try -
I had purchased one of these a while ago and didn't like how the pushers on the actual watch are recessed vs. how they are shown in the catalog photo where they are shown extended. Anyway, got another one and I really like it overall. Works perfectly, nice large size and the great vintage look. I even found the stories about the POW connection during WWII. Very cool. They call them the Great Escape chronographs. And got my initial engraved on it. Highly recommended!
As some of the post have stated, the second hand did not properly return to the start position. This is a very simple fix if they would simply read the instructions that came with their watch. This has been a great watch!
Great purchase -
Great watch for any occasion and everyday wear. Very comfortable
Beautiful Watch -
As the title of this review states, it is a beautiful product--on the page and on my wrist. Unfortunately, it does not work properly. The second hand in the stopwatch function does not return to the proper 12 O'clock starting position upon reset. I just sent the second one back and have requested a refund. Both units had the same problem.

This is a very nice vintage looking chronograph watch. It's a nice size, not too large. It's the perfect, sporty, classic accessory.

Looks good and feels good. Keeping accurate time so far. Many people have commented on the watch - all positive.
