I'm going to be very brief with this review because @sriracha did a fantastic review of the same model I have for review. It can be found here.
And @jguitron did a review of the serif dial with aluminum bezel and that can be found here
I can't take pictures as good as @sriracha (and I tend to agree with his commentary) and I have no where near the knowledge of @jguitron so I will minimize my review to showing the watch on a variety of straps and a short executive summary of my thoughts. Seriously check out their reviews.
Summary of my thoughts:
This is a great watch. The build quality is better than Steinhart. Probably on par with the Squale 30 Atmos I used to have. There will be no qualms about the value for $. The integration of the glass, bezel, and case is spectacular. The one thing that is hard to see from pics is that the glass IS NOT a boxed crystal that so many micros use for their vintage designs. I'll be honest and say that I'm not a huge fan of that style of glass on most watches. I prefer the gently domed look of vintage acrylic. The good news here is that the glass on the Silver A1 is a hybrid of the 2. It has an abruptly curved edge that continues to a gently domed center. It does a good job of mimicking the old acrylic look. To me the watch wears slightly smaller than specs indicate. I'll take a picture next to a Hamilton Hack and an SKX to give you a sense of scale. If you are planning on using thick leather or canvas I would reccommend getting some curved spring bars. The lugs holes are a bit close to the case. Natos fit no problem but my canvas strap took a little work. The true no-date movement is a nice touch. Also from pics I have seen and handling the prototype, I think the Ceramic bezel is the way to go! Now on to the pics! I may add some more thoughts here as I think if it.
This is THE milsub homage to have!
