Doubt it all you want I know atleast 3 fighter pilots that wear them and loads a bus drivers / comercial pilots !! and if you have a problem with a finish they will redo the finish and refurb it for little or nothing ! just my 2 cents and personal opinion .. There is gona be MORE wearing them soon because of the new lumi there just starting to use ! It a make a orange monster look like a dead battery almost as good as tubes ... :gold The license is up for a really HI end companys LUMI and Chase has latched on to it .. as have few other companys ! check out Chase Durer site and how many flight groups have there patch made on to models for them you will be surprised !!I doubt it, I really doubt it......and I doubt there´s any proof.
I bet he never bothered to wash it off when he got out of salt water SS has to be TT don't and the crown got open some how IMO but its just IMHO ... Iam sure IF it was a failure of the watch they would a fixed it !FREE...But then I think Omega stinks so come se coome sa ...A co-worker/friend of mine bought an CD "Abyss" in 2001. From a MIL catalogue. It looked real flash (impressive). He used to wear it in the surf, but after owning it for just a few months, the bracelet started to corrode and the watch case leaked.
His next watch was an ORIS TT1 which he has worn daily for almost 5 years and it's still going strong.
Just no comparison.
But Ken, how on earth can we judge from your input? I mean really, you are so Polyanna about things;-)I recently bought a yellow dial Chase-Durer Combat Command (Valjoux 7750). I was very reticent to get it, but it was part of a package deal that held a Glycine Airman 2000 that I dearly wanted. My hesitation was based solely on comments I had read on WUS a few years ago. At any rate, the price was more than right just for the Glycine, so I made the deal.
While waiting arrival, I asked several people who had owned C-D and found that most of the problems had been with quartz models. When I got the Combat Command, I was stunned at the high quality of F & F in comparison to what I had heard. With the exception of poor lume, it is a very high quality, very accurate timepiece that I enjoy very much.
I bought a Chase-Durer women's quartz chronograph for my wife about two years ago. We both think it is very nice looking, and there haven't been any problems.Guys, I need your educated opinions and I haven't been able to find any comments on Chase Durer in the forum. Are they good wathches? Prices seem to be ok, but I'm concerned about quality. In particular the Special Forces model 146.4BB4-NYLB.
