Here is my week old baby. Isn't he cute? Seriously, this is a TX Flyback Chronograph blackout watch. I wanted a black on black and am very pleased with the watch, after initially needing 2-3 wears to get used to it. A, it's super big, 47-48 mm, so that was a little intimidating, but wise for a tool watch I guess. B, it is incredibly easy to read in daylight, to put some people's minds at ease. At night, the lume is subdued, not super strong from what I have seen, but that's cool. It has a leather strap thats just average it appears, black PVD throughout, dual time zone / chrono, and blue AR on the sapphire crystal. Retails $575, so not sure about where to put it, but considering it is one of my least costly watches, I put it in affordable. (Also, I dont see a Timex/TX foru, unless I am missing it.) Without further ado, let me know what you think...

I'm still not sure how I feel about the "phantom" thing. Guess I'll have to get one for myself to find out. Does it have lume?

Wow, a tough audience in some cases. ;-) Its very easy to read the time. I was actually pretty pleased with those photos. I only took those and they came out well I thought. Oh well, yes, I am happy with the watch....yes, the size initially is alarming/intimidating (and I have a small wrist, though the wrist shot is distorted in that regard) and one drawback is it does make other watches of more normal size 40-42mm feel smaller. But I think in the case of a phantom watch, larger seems better, in order to tell the time (a primary watch function I would guess), and I like having the variety. Just hope I don't put away my other watches now that I have this, but I don't suspect that will be an issue.
