If you’re looking for an old-school military style watch, Lum-Tec has prepared a brand new model for 2016, and it’s called Combat B33 GMT. It’s a reliable quartz wristwatch for everyday use that combines the elements of other military style watches, but it all works together pretty well. The watch is made of 315L stainless steel with a bead blasted finish and a hard coat from a Gunmetal PVD titanium Carbide. The old radium tone luminescence provides an easy reading at night.
The handset of the Combat B33 GMT resembles that of pilot watches and the raised luminescent numerals have the same font as some divers. The two included straps provide you to opt for black nylon or old world style brown leather. The Swiss Ronda R515.24 quartz movement guarantees precision while the GMT scale is in a darker grey color and remains in the background so it won’t distract you when you don’t need it. The second time zone also has its own skeletonized hand that circles around the inner track.
This design of the Combat B33 GMT pushes the 24-hour GMT scale in second place. This is a good timepiece for military style watch lovers as it combines the elements of classic military watches. It’s also waterproof to the depth of 200 meters and it comes with a two-year limited warranty. This watch will be available as a limited series and there will be only 200 pieces sold. If you like this watch, be prepared to order it as soon as it becomes available in July 2016. If you want to pre-order now, you’ll get a 15% discount.
