Came with dead battery. Otherwise perfect.


From Carson


Despite being on sale, I paid over 100 dollars for this, for it to arrive DOA because of the battery. Looking online, it's about 50 dollars to get it sent to a SPECIFIC Precision Time in Utah that 5.11 approves of to have it replaced and sealed and all that.
Welp. I just walked into my mall here, paid 52 dollars but didn't have to worry about shipping. It's a Precision Time store too, but because it's not 5.11's of course it will void the warranty. But here's the good part about it. I don't think I will need the warranty. This seals perfectly, keeps time well, as it should being a watch. The glass, or sapphire whatever has resisted scratches perfectly, not a single mark on it. Only wish the dive bezel part would rotate both ways so I don't have to rotate it all the way around to use it as a stopwatch type thing.

Great watch


From Classified


I have had this watch for 3 years and doesn't have a scratch. If always wanted a watch that looks casual but strong.

Watch band smells funny


From MadMax


I bought the black version of the watch (019 black). Great watch that's got a comfortable band, rotating compass feels great but the 511 brand mark deviates slightly from the 12 o'clock position (maybe I'm just being picky). The funny part was that the plastic watch band smells exactly like playdoh (maybe it's because of that particular plastic used). Other than that the watch is great.

Not happy.


From Dunnsguns


I bought this watch NEW for myself for christmas 2014 a few days later it was completely dead and had been for several hours. I noticed as I was showing it off to to a few people. I slapped it a couple times with my hand and it started again. The distributor I got it from stop carrying the 5.11 brand shortly after that but for a year now it starts and stops whenver it feels like. Hopefully I get the chance to send it back. It sounds like I just got a dud but it's been frustrating.

Not for Lefties


From Hockey Man

from Reno, Nevada

Date window is tilted forty five degrees below horizontal. Easy to read if you are right handed and wear watch on your left wrist. But if you wear a watch on your RIGHT wrist, then you are basically looking at the date upside down, and are constantly reminded of being a lefty in world where most products are designed for right-handed people.

Tough Tactical Torch


From Tropical-Thunder

from Africa

Very strong tactical flashlight, compact enough for carrying in pockets, but large enough to be used as a weapon (last resort!). For the lighting itself, it has a very bright beam on high and really good features. Strap is not for me, but can see how some would use it (breakable lanyard). Really happy with the clip, can be attached to pockets, shirts and smaller belts for waist-carry. Overall, it's solid value for money.

I love this watch!


From chris

from Chicago,IL

This watch is one of the best things I've ever purchased from 5.11
Its great for everyday wear weather it be with a suit or just jeans.

I have one complaint about it though, if your going to wear it everyday I suggest you wash it ever so often, other wise a lot of dirt will build up underneath and may cause a rash.

Great watch


From orthoman

from Modesto CA

The watch keeps excellent time. I usually do not like watches that don't have a metal band. Although, the Sentinel's band is very comfortable.

Good Light Duty Watch with a GREAT band.


From TechScott

from Camp Arifjan, Kuwait

This is not a Tactical grade watch which is not a bad thing unless you were expecting a ruggedized timepiece and for the price I was. The included band is by far the most comfortable I've ever worn. I only wonder if replacements are available? For light duty use this watch looks good, is comfortable and appears to be of good quality.

Great Watch!


From Link Up

from Northeast

Great watch. Bought in on a whim because the PX had only one in stock. Have not been sorry.For a large watch it is fairly light and wears good.
