Default Bertucci A-2T Vintage.

Today was a great day for timing! (Pun intended) I got two watches in and this Bertucci was one of them. This is going to be my everyday wear and field watch. I got a Citizen in also but, that will be more for dressier occasions as I put a nice leather band on it. Anyway, Bertucci A-2T Vintage series. No date and has 24hr. time. Titanium case and 200m WR.

I like that, I'm gonna have to go take a closer look at the brand. I may have just found my next watch.

SeikoLuvR:
Kinda looks like a Seiko 807 doesn't it?

Nice pick up! I've handled a number of Bertucci's in small mom & pop outdoor stores in Northern Michigan many times. Have never pulled the trigger though. Mostly because I'm just not an impulse buyer unless it is under $20! I believe they come with a good reputation, and, IMO, fine examples of tool field watches.

Hey cool SeikoLuvR, this seems like the ultimate field watch
to be honest, and love the classic, yet modern feel it has !

Just the case shape is unbelievable, and blends different
styles, along with eras, and then how about the dial design?!
Really is perfect, and both traditional, and eye-catching !!!

Huge dueling dual congratulations !!

Thanks for the comments gentlemen! I have been wearing the Bertucci since it came in yesterday. Even slept with it to test the lume. Sure enough, around 4:20am, I woke and looked at the dial and could see the hands very well to determine what time it was! I am super happy with this one and have ordered a couple of Nato style thin leather bands for it this morning. I got one coming from Barton and one coming from StrapsCo.

Thanks Lou! You are correct in that for the price, it really checks the boxes for me. I've made it my everyday wearer. So far, it is all I hoped it would be in a field watch and I've got plans for keeping this one for a good long time. Being ex-military, I love the features and ruggedness of the whole watch. Plus, I have an illness that has left me with nerve issues in both arms from the elbow down to the ring and pinky fingers in both hands. So, the Titanium case makes it much lighter than say, the Seiko Turtle. After a full day of wear, my arms and hands don't ache from the weight. Also, I did change out the band to a Strapsco green leather Nato. The brushed buckle and rings look like the were made for this watch! They are an exact match in color.

Definitely good. You almost can't go wrong with a nice leather strap.
