The model is the ECB-900.

There’s a bad photo of it with my aftermarket Williams Martini style nato strap. It’s advertised as having a 21mm band, but my 20mm nato straps fit perfectly.

I replaced the metal band because I like the variety of nato straps I have (which are very quick to swap) and I do not have the tools to remove links from the strap.

Here it is with a “Gucci” coloured nato strap, I’m not sure why the photos turned out so different since I took them in the same lighting conditions.

Features? Stopwatch, timer, alarm, world time, digital/analog hybrid, solar power, and bluetooth. 49mm case diameter and 13-14mm case thickness (as advertised, haven’t measured it personally).

I thought it’d be a big watch, and it is - while I think the diameter is nice, it is a thick watch. I’d seen advertised measurements of 13-14mm but it feels like it’s the 14mm side. Then again, I tend to wear slim automatics with minimal complications so maybe this is expected with this kind of watch.

It syncs with the time on your phone over a Bluetooth app. World time is easy to set with either preset settings in the watch or a city of your choice in the app. It’ll automatically update based on where you are in the world. This feature will only be useful to me a few weeks out of the year but I love it. You can even save stopwatch/lap data and shit like that, but I’m not interested in that.

It’s also available with blue accents, but I thought it stood out a bit too much since the tachymeter dial was also accented blue whereas mine has it in the same colour as the dial.

Would I recommend it? It’s not the style of watch I’d normally buy, but it feels like quality and I think it’ll last a long time. The bluetooth connectivity alone means that it’ll be obsolete at some point but until then I’m going to enjoy it.
