Watch is bulky , strap too short , not a comfortable fit
wholly unsuited to purpose -
By: Pyewt from Moreland Hills, Ohio
Without regard to anything else, the strap is much too short for an adult male. I don't have a large wrist, but the strap barely circles it when fastened in the very last hole.. It will be necessary for most men to buy another watchband entirely. The luminous figures on the dial, and the luminous hands, are not luminous at all. It is necessary to turn on a light to see the watchface at any time after dusk. Providing real luminous markings is not difficult to do. It might cost an additional 2 cents per watch. This is inexcusable negligence in design at this price. There is no luminous paint at all on the sweep second hand, or the dials or hands of the other tiny gauges that are used in timing. Thus, the "chronograph" is usable only in broad daylight or bright indoor lighting. Use in an automobile after dusk is impossible. This is another basic design flaw. The main stem, which controls all adjustments, is much, much too loose in its socket. Rubbing the watch accidentally against something like, e.g., the cuff of a jacket, a napkin, or any sort of rag or towel will cause the stem to pop out. When that happens, of course, the watch stops keeping time and every further tap or joggle causes the main hands or the date to move. The stem of a chronometer should be difficult to pop out in order to make such problems impossible. Even better, it should screw down into the watch case to assure this protection, as well as to insure water resistance. I am very skeptical that the watch really has much real water resistance at all in view of this problem. No chronometer with this problem can be reliable for any purpose. This is a highly unsatisfactory product for Orvis to sell. Beware.
Beautiful Watch, Great Size -
By: RedDog1234 from Denver, CO
Couldn't be happier with the elegant look of this watch! Great color combo between the face and the band. NOTE: there is a tiny plastic "nib" between the crown and the body of the watch. The instructions tell you to pull out the crown to set the time and date. It's actually already out and can't be pushed back in till the "nib" is removed. The "nib" is almost invisible, but can be easily removed.
Stylish and Expensive Looking -
By: srstratt from Louisville, KY
This is a very attractive watch. Oversized and well-made with a thick leather strap. It looks much more expensive than it costs. It looks great with both casual and business attire.
don't buy this watch -
By: augangler from Augusta, Georgia
The watch is very handsome, but one of the little stems bent when it got caught on my pocket. i've also worn it fishing twice, and though I've not fallen in, it is has collected condensation. Also it stops for no reason at various times--and it began stopping long before I wore it fishing. I just would not recommend it.
Not a keeper -

Loved the look but the stem broke off after 4 months. The stem catches almost every time you reach into your pocket. As I now read the reviews I'm hoping Orvis will take this one back.
Great Christmas Surprise! -
By: HappyinChucktown123 from Charleston SC
Great fit with comfortable band that doesn't irritate my wrist...easily readable face...classic in style...
Looks Good but stem breaks off -
I took a chance on the watch after reading another review that warned about the stem breaking off. I should have listened to the review. The stem broke off after 3 months usage. If you put your hands in your pockets, the stem snags. Eventually, the stem will break off. I am now in the process of exchanging for another watch. Orvis wanted me to have it repaired with their services, but this will not change the fact that I put me hands in my pockets and this will happen again. They agreed to exchange after this discussion.
Great Chronograph -
By: JDII from Bedford Hills, NY
Loved the green face and bezel, was hoping it would look good in real life... and it does! Contrast between the green and silver across the whole - big - face is classic and classy. Adding the light-colored leather racing inspired strap adds to the overall aesthetic for me. Rugged but refined. Has the look and feel of a much more expensive watch - and the chronograph works just fine in my experience so far. I'm sure I'll be wearing this watch for years to come.
M16 Chronograph -
By: WatchFanToo from Chicago, IL
I love watches but all my previous watches seemed to be missing something. The M16 Chronograph is flawless, functional and comfortable. I particularly appreciate how the minute and hour hands jump out at you from the, perfect shade of green, face WatchFanToo
