    I'm not really much of a chrono guy, but I like the look of the olive.

    I guess the price is right.

    They should work a little bit more on the design, imo all of the hands are too big, the same with the surround of the subdials.
    Cheapens the look.
    The geen one is pleasing to the eye!

    I don't like the hands. Other than that they aren't too bad.

    Love them. They've made some other recent mechanical chrono additions as well. This is the Mach 8.

    I guess made for the US market in mind!

    TK 421! Oh yes, surely a good beater, but for the size. Unless you have a large wrist.

    Swiss Army 45 mm wear quite large too. Seems like the lugs are rather straight although I don't know the distance. I love a lot of their watches but I need something smaller.
