This is the best value I have seen in a new larger military-style quartz date watch, and IMS-PLUS is the best vendor of it.

The photo doesn't do justice to the size -- there is no visual indication that it is larger than the traditional (rather small by today's standards) mil style. Also invisble is the slight doming of the outer crystal surface. I have not verified the movement, but if it truly uses the Miyota (Citizen) 2115 as suggested elsewhere, then it is not only highy reliable but also highly serviceable. Either way, the quick-set date and hacking features (the stem has 2 positions: the first to change the date without affecting the time, the second to set the time and freeze the second hand for precise synchronization) help make this watch the outstanding value that it is. My only wish is that there was lume (phosphorescence) on the dial, not just the hands. While it completely lacks manufacturer or origin markings and includes only a reduced photocopied sales blurb, it does come in a cool little cardboard box (made in Massachusetts!?) fully sealed with adhesive brown paper and stamped (see photo background).

IMS-PLUS supplied a low price, low shipping cost, fast service, and email notification at every phase of the process, leaving no room for improvement. I would absolutely do business with them again.

Bottom line: if you are looking for new larger military-style quartz date watch, better get while the gettin's good.
