Not what I expected -
This watch quality does not mhave the quality that I would expect of Orvis..
Best watch ever -
This watch looked great online and even better in person! I have not had any problems with it yet and it was very easy to set up. It is an everyday watch; I find myself wearing to work and on the weekends. When I opened the package, the watch came in a very nice leather case that can be used for storage. Also, the shipping said 5-7 days but it actually came in 2! I highly recommend getting this watch!

I recently purchased the vintage chronograph for my fiancé. He was beyond pleased. The watch came in a beautiful leather box he was just as excited about. The Italian leather bands looked as good as they smelled. The metal is tarnished a bit to give the watch a vintage feel. Also the text and hands are not as bright as they appear in the photo, again to give the piece that worn old appeal. The size is perfect and the leather has already worn in nicely. The chronograph feature is pretty cool and my fiancé keeps looking for reasons to use it. This watch is classic, exactly what I'd been looking for and an amazing quality for the price. He's worn it everyday since it arrived, able to dress it up and down.
Great piece! -

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
