WATCH REVIEW:

INFANTRY Night Vision Military Quartz Sport Mens Wrist Watch with Black Nylon Band

Review Date: October, 30, 2012

Why I ordered this watch

After years of going without a watch I felt the need to return to using a simple wrist time keeper. I was tired of pulling out my smartphone everytime I just wanted to quickly check the time.

After researching watches for a few weeks I decided to hit ebay where I found an ultra-affordable analog display, military style wrist watch by a company named Infantry which their watches bear the same name.

Won ebay bid on Oct. 24th and recieved Infantry watch five days later on Oct. 29th via USPS, really quick shipping. (Click image for large view)

Ordering
The ebay auction for this watch was for around $9.00 with free shipping, can't go wrong with a price that low. There ware actually multiple dozens of styles and designs to choose from the Infantry family of watches but I decided to go with one of their simple basic designs, at least at first.

It took five days to recieve the watch after winning the ebay bid, pretty fast shipping.

Appearance
The watch has a very basic simple analog design with 12/24 hour markers. The case 40mm size looks fairly well on a mans wrist.

Lume Display - Does it glow?
I wounldn't buy this watch for its lume feature alone. While the watch does have a geen lume on the hour and minute hand I could not get a good representation of what it looks like in a photo. The hour markers on the dial have green paint "ticks" but are not lumed.

The hour and minute hand have a faint lume on them which work but is not the watches strong point. (Click image for large view)

Performance
Even though I haven't spent copious amounts of time with the Infantry watch so far it seems to keep time fairly well. The Japanese quartz movement should be reliable and Infantry backs their watches with a 12-month guarantee from date of purchase.

The back of the watch is a stainless steel cover with laser etched logo. (Click image for large view)

Fit and finish
The watch looks and feels pretty good as an entry level watch. For its low price you really can't find a better deal elsewhere.

The only area where I personally think this watch could be improved upon is the lume on the hands. It's fairly weak to say the least. The watch band is smallish for my wrist. I have approximately 7 3/4 inch wrist, average size I believe, and the band barely fits me having to using the last strap hole, so for larger wrists you may want to consider purchasing a watch band with this as well. The band is black canvas material and is fairly supple and comfortable to wear.

Final core-reaction

The Infantry Night Vision Military Quartz Sport Men's watch with black canvas band is a great buy if you're looking to get an extremely affordablw watch. The "Night Vision" part is where I think it falls a little short.
