The 40mm blue dial creates a fantastic appearance on this sleek, stylish watch. The (Band Color) band helps to bring the look together for something that is sure to catch the eye. The analog display features a high quality automatic movement which is backed by the full manufacturer warranty. This watch is made of stainless steel case and stainless steel band and is water resistant to 100m.
The Swiss Army Men's Ambassador Blue Dial Watch offers a refined, circular dial with large, luminous silver-toned hands and Arabic numeral hour indexes from two through five o'clock and seven through 10 o'clock. A sweeping day of the week display is placed over the 11 o'clock through one o'clock positions at the top of the dial while a date display is discreetly located at the six o'clock position. Outer minute tracks with silver-toned dots at each hour and a 24-hour index on the inner perimeter make it easy to tell time accurately. A durable stainless steel bezel and case surround the blue dial while an anti-reflective, sapphire crystal window provides excellent scratch resistance. The handsome, stainless steel bracelet is fastened by a secure deployment clasp. This watch is water resistant 330 feet (100 meters) and is equipped with precise Swiss automatic self-wind movement.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
As a time piece the watch is excellent; as are almost Swiss Army products. The dark blue dial contrasts well with the silver metal markings and numbers. Day and date are also very readable. The hands are well proportioned, and add to the over all functionality of the watch. Even the secondary GMT (24) markings are clearly laid out in black type.
The only weak spot in the watch is the Lume. Swiss Army is very stingy with the lume, making the watch unreadable in low light. The power reserve is adequate to the task, with the 32hour reserve somewhat optimistic. If the watch is not on the wrist, daily winding is required to keep accurate time.
With its sapphire crystal, the watch will survive the usual minor dings of typical use. Sapphire resists scratching and scrapping fairly well. Still, this is not the watch to take out rock climbing or even canoeing. Pay no attention to the 100m water resistant claim. The watch does not have a screw-down crown, and will not survive any kind of prolonged submersion in water.
Where the watch excels is in its classic, conservative, good looks. It exudes a casual, confident masculinity. It has a rugged, if restrained, look. Because of that, and the metal band, it looks good both with a business suite and with a t-shirt / jeans combo. The watch really grows on you, and you will find it becoming your go-to watch. It is the perfect gift for just about any member of male species, but especially the older subset of that group.
