    Sector Watches?

    Does anyone have any opinions on the quality and so forth of Sector Watches? I bought this Sector ADV4500 NO LIMITS in '94 or so. I don't see many around and I don't wear mine very often as it's a bit too small for my wrist. I believe I heard someone refer to it once as a "unisex" watch and my sometimes fragile ego is afraid that someone will ask me why I'm wearing my sister's watch. I do get it on every once and awhile as I do like the general appearance and details of the watch.

    Re: Sector Watches?

    I bought a Sector watch back in '05, a quartz chronograph. It was my daily beater (and my only watch) for more than 4 years. I wore it everyday and everywhere, even swimming and snorkeling and it still keeps perfect time. After that the watch bug bit me really bad and I started collecting automatics, but I still put it on from time to time. I think Sector makes some decent watches for the money.

    I think they are a great looking watch. I almost bought the chronograph when I bought mine but at the time wanted more of a sport diver watch. I've always been surprised that they didn't have a larger following. Thanks for your reply.

    You will not find a lot of posts on WUS with regard to Sector Watches. There are some from 2006 and 2008, not much as I said. Very well known in Italy: Sector Group SpA

    Re: Sector Watches?

    I bought a quartz chrono/ pseudo diver Sector 5 years ago when my pre-Tag Heuer I had worn for 20 years was done. I didn't know much about watches then but have had it for a few years and actually like it. The build quality is actually very good and I've had no problems with it. It is actually much larger than the model you have, however, it is too blingy, large, and sport oriented to wear with a suit, so I now have an Omega SMP which has been on my wrist almost exclusively for the past year. I live on the ocean and have a boat for diving/fishing so I tend gravitate to dive oriented watches. But I have recently "rediscovered" the Sector and have been wearing it quite a bit more lately -especially on the boat.

    Re: Sector Watches?

    Sector, primarily a sports watch company, is under the same corporate umbrella with Philip Watch and Morellato, both Italian-based brands. I really liked Sector's 195 series from about five years ago. I've never heard of anyone complain of their quality once they've worn one; I know more than a few people who just adore the brand. I own one (a Winch Master), but I use it primarily for stuff like, well, the beach or light sports. As for their newer ones, I kind of preferred their older models in terms of styling, and it appears they have fewer Swiss movements than they did years ago. Yours looks just fine, honestly; looks like a pretty well-built diver style watch, it's not "feminine" at all. When you say mid-size, is it, say 34mm?

    I agree. I used to own one of their older models and it was a fine watch. The older models were much better.

    Re: Sector Watches?

    The older Sectors were pretty good watches, and I've had, and still have quite a few of 'em, and I liked almost all of them. Good quality cases an decent movements, even the japan made ones. BUT, the newer ones, from after 2006, I'm thinking the entire Dive, Mountain, Yacht and marathon Master series, are really crappy watches. Bad cases, and even worse designs, and the ana/digi versions are fittet with VERY low quality chineese movements, but the worst part of it is that they rarely keep their water resistance... I'm working on them almost every day, and 90% of 'em is water damaged. On top of that, Sector keeps changing little things like: crystal diameter, crowns and crown tubes even the bracelet/strap width... It's very frustrating and anoying, that nothing fits when you order parts, and they don't seem to care one bit about it from Sectors side...
    Sorry, but I just had to get it out of my system.
    In short: Old Sectors, lots of value for the money. New Sectors, quite the oposite...
