Superb Piece of Kit

I have to admit that I wasn't really a fan of white dial watches, but I saw this piece many times on social media and decided to buy one to add some variety to my collection. I already have several CWC watches, including the black dial version of this model, so I knew the quality I was buying.

This is a super little watch and like all G10 models, wears beautifully, even on my 8in wrist. The contrast of the red seconds hand on the white dial is fantastic, and again, like all G10 models, a quick change of strap gives the watch a whole new look.

The movement is super accurate, literally only a couple of seconds per week which is more than good enough for my needs. The lume is also excellent and lasts throughout the night.

Despite owning other watches costing many times the price of the GS Sapphire, this is one of my favourite watches in my collection and gets plenty of wrist time - especially since my wife commandeered my black dial GS Sapphire Date version.

My advice would be to pick one of these up, stick it on your wrist and enjoy it!

CWC GS Sapphire Subhunter Watch, Stainless Steel Case with White Dial

Dylan Epp
The Standard

I've always liked simple, clean, crisp, and functional tools since I can remember. After all, what is the point of a fancy and or expensive tool if it doesn't perform the job it was designed for.
So, what criteria should a field watch have? What is this tool designed for? Obviously telling accurate time, but for a field watch I feel there are two sub categories; Military and general outdoors use (camping, hiking etc). Both require virtually the same functions, with the military requiring three additional specifications.
Based on my ten year career in the US military, eight as a Ranger with 3rd Ranger battalion and an avid outdoorsman, a field watch needs to be; accurate, durable, easily readable, water resistant 100m, relatively affordable and, easily serviceable.
The Ronda 715 lithium movement is very accurate (mine hasn't change a second over a month). The sapphire crystal and stainless steel case are more that durable enough for all types of military training and outdoor activity. The simple bold roman numerals ensure it is easily readable at a quick glance. The screw down crown enabling 200m of water resistance ensure the watch will continue to work in all but the hardest military dive training. A smart private (US military pay) would be able to afford this if they saved for a month or two while still having a social life. The quartz movement and long battery life ensure that this piece is very easily serviceable.
Now for the military specific things a watch should have. It should be easily readable at night, thin enough to not get caught on anything, and lastly not really anything to do with the watch. But the strap should be able to remain on all day in all conditions for multiple days. These are the only area this watch doesn't meet the criteria. The Lum is fine for everything except night operations, you really need tritium gas tubes, I know that would take away from the vintage look of the watch but I can bet with it this would be on the radar for unit issue. The watch wears surprising thin which is a hug plus cause this isn't getting caught on anything. Lastly the nato strap is nice and perfect for all outdoor activities, but for a military watch this strap wouldn't last weeks in the field with wet mud/ sand without irritating the wrist. A nice rubber strap would solve this as simply pouring water over the strap would clean and remove any debris.
All in all this is, for me, the standard all other field watches should aspire to meet. I prefer it to the watch I was issued and would've happily wore it all the time except for night ops. This watch punches way above it's price point, Y'all really did a bang up job with this piece!

This is really a great watch! I have a large wrist and was concerned about the size, but it looks just fine. The case is beautiful; finish and shape are striking, and the slightly domed crystal adds a nice touch. I really like the shape of the hands and way the minute hand extends all the way to the markers, and the lume lasts all through the night. The long battery life and 20 atm rating make it a truly utilitarian time piece. I really love this watch!
