Well, got the long awaited GLTS Tritium MWC in today. All in all for the money, not a bad watch. There is definately evidence of short cutting, but other than mostly small refinements, not a bad watch, especially at 1/4th the cost of a very similar looking Marathon SAR. The watch measures in at a fairly large 48mm including the crown with 24mm lugs, 15mm thick and 50mm end to end.
The watch has a nice weighted presence on the wrist, very large 24mm lugs which I like, has mb-microtech H3 Tritium lume. Also, I really like the bezel, 96 clicks and the bezel numbers actually line up with the dial numbers. Comes on a very nice oyster styled bracelet with solid endlinks. Has Swiss Ronda Quartz movement, although I don't believe it is a real Ronda movement upon opening the case for further inspection. Next,...
First of all and what truly aggrevated me the most, was how the spring bars are right against the side of the case not allowing for any other strap option except for the bracelet provided with the watch, which immediately came off, not a bracelet guy. I actually milled the edges very delicately by hand with a detail file to allow the use of a 24mm Nato strap, appears factory. Next would be the smeary smudges on the underside of the crystal, a quick glance out in the sunlight nearly made me sick Upon arriving home from work, I immediately started with the disassembly process, when looking at the movement it states, Ronda 1 Jewel and "Swiss Parts" just over to one side, not sure, but all Ronda movements I have had previous to this were all gold colored. The bezel moves way easier then it should, if your shirt sleeve rubs against it, it will move. I would definately say the H3 Tritium lume is way over exadurated, no where near as bright as it has been made out to be. There were also metal shavings all around the inner edge, just beside the case back seal, after all necessary cleaning, lubing and re-assemling, I am satisfied with the watch for the money. I would only recommend this watch to someone who is mechanically inclined and fairly comfortable with pulling there watch apart, or simply comfortable with the unrefinements.
