The Two-Minute Sandoz Sub Review
This review is specifically for the blue-faced Sandoz Submariner, but most of the points hold true for the other Sandoz Subs.
The face is a stunning sapphire blue. It is dark and rich and reflects light in a majestic fashion. Markers and writing are accurately placed and flawless.
The movement is the ETA 2824. Keeps good time, automatic, hackable, and smooth sweeping second hand.
Brushed with inset black lettering. Turns very nicely and doesn't have much play.
Accurately placed and has good magnification.
It's very green looking and doesn't last long.
Scratches easily, as is typical for this sort of glass.
Too small and hard to manipulate because of the massive crown guards.
Too thin for the size of the watch, and the clasp is so short that I have to contort my hand to get it in.
Dot on Bezel
Tiny and dirty brown. Doesn't look very nice.
Only 100m. Not very useful as a dive watch.
Although the Cons outnumber the Pros, I like the watch. I bought it for its blue face and its ETA engine and it delivers on both.
