After a year w/ my Airman, I want to report all is well! It's a great watch, still keeping precise time, holds wind power long, gets a lot of attention from non wis folks. It's one of the most comfortable watches I own, fits like a Saville Row suit! I am glad I bought it. Only thing I changed was the strap, I couldn't get comfy w/ the rivet type strap that came on it. I kept the German "vibe" by getting a Di Modell strap...Rallye model.
