This is my second Men's Classic Field watch by Wenger. The First one lasted eight + years. A few months ago the first one started losing time, I immediately started searching for an exact replacement. The first one kept accurate time down to the seconds for months at a time. The simple design; from the leather band to the illuminated dial were more than just adaquate. The new model has an improvement especially for guys like me that are nearsighted, a magnified date window. A month after I put the old one away I happened to look at it, and it showed the exact time as the new one.
