Good watch -
By: JCPb4u from Kingston, RI
The watch works well although the date is a little tricky to set. The band is much too long and will have to be replaced.
Running a Little Slow -
I love the style of my new field watch, especially since I replaced the original band at a local watch band store. After a week of using it tho, I'm disappointed to see that the watch loses about 30 seconds every 24 Hrs. I've owned a watch for nearly all of the last 35 years, and I've never had one lose time. I'll be taking it back to the store for a replacement to see if another one will do any better.
Worst Customer Service -
By: WillMSC from Charleston, SC
Great watch, however the customer service I was provided by Orvis and their third party vendor Parsec Enterprises Inc. when trying to get my watch repaired has probably been the worst I have ever experienced. If you plan on ever replacing the watch band with the orignal one once it wears out (which it will) then I would highly suggest against purchasing this product.
I love this watch -
I own several "high end" watches. However this is a favorite of mine. This is the third time I've purchased this watch from Orvis. The first time was seven years ago. I lost it. The second time was five years ago. I recently broke it (long story). The third one hasn't arrived as yet. Watch aficionados always assume that it is an expensive Swiss made time piece.
Changed Watch Band -
By: Nous6020 from Sacramento, CA
So, I actually received my original field chronograph 4-5 years as a gift. The watch was sturdy and quite handsome. However, after years of regular use, the band wore out and the battery needed to be replaced. I sent the watch into Orvis for service. Around that same time, I bought four field chronographs as groomsman gifts. What I found with the newer field chronographs is that Orvis has changed the band from a handsome, high quality leather, and now uses a lower quality, less attractive leather for the band. I also noticed, both on with my replacement band and the new watches, that the band is much longer than it used to be, so that even in its tightest position, the watch strap is much too large, leaving the watch to slide up and down my wrist. Because this is annoying, I find myself either removing the watch frequently, such as when I am typing on the computer, or choosing to wear a different watch that fits my writs better. That said, my only issue is with the newer leather band. The main case has not changed significantly between my older watch, and the newer ones that I purchased as gifts. I would like to request that if at all possible, Orvis return to using the older, higher quality leather bands, which provided a better fit, and made for a more handsome wristwatch.
Just the right size! -
I received this watch for Christmas. The face is just the right size and it looks good with casual or dress clothes.

This watch is stylish and dependable. I have owned one for many years- got it as a holiday gift from my grandparents and have liked it so much over the years that I decided to by one for my brother in law. It is comfortable and the leather band has withstood the test of time. It is easy to read- even at night thanks to indiglo dials.
