I liked this watch straight out of the box. Military style, reminds me of my Traser, or a Nite, CWC stuff. Looks good on the Zulu. I got seven and a half inch wrists and this beast wears big. Not too heavy but its not shy in coming forward.

I found the Zulu not that comfy so on with some rubber and the perfect fit. Colors wont suit everyone................:laugh:

The date window is quite small. The bezel rotates to the left (counter clockwise) with a good firm click. Sounds lovely too.

Lets see how it compares size wise to a Vostok 420 case below.

Looks like it has been dropped or knocked at some stage as the crown guard and crown is dinged.

Below I think my 67 Vostok Amphibia gives it a run for its money.

The screw down crown is knurled and feels just right. First click out is a quick set date. Nice.

2nd click out are the hands but no hack only a poor mans hack. Military watch in this price range should hack. IMO.

I love T tubes and these are constant all night. The 12 is picked out in orange so you can easily read the time in pitch darkness. Its not mega bright like say a Divex but constant and easy to read.

Overall feels good quality and well put together with a tough sapphire crystal. Not sure how hard it was knocked for it to get the ding.  Keeping good time as well, that always helps. I plan to wear it to the office all next week then report back on the time keeping.

That looks a beast of a watch, much bigger than in the promo pics. Like the look with the red rubber strap. Suits it I think. It's had one hell of a clonk on that crown guard though. Did you take a pic on the red zulu?

No the red Zulu is what I would buy for it if it was mine....................:thumbsup:
