Justin T.wrote a review of Vestal Utilitarian Watch on January 2, 2014
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
This watch has held-up well in everyday use and SCUBA diving to 45" for extended periods. The watch face is very resistant to scratching: No scratches in 2 months, though I usually scratch-up the glass pretty quickly, even on more expensive watches. I did scuff the bezel, but it is not very noticeable. The time can be a bit hard to read since it has black hands on the black watch face. Also, it does not glow in the dark or have a light, so it it hard to see at night. The quirks: the band is a bit thin compared to the bulk of the watch face and it has a unidirectional bezel (rotates only counter-clockwise), but no mark on the bezel to indicate the start time! I still give it high marks for its durability and good looks. I have tried paying more for marked bezels and back-lights only to have the watches scratch and fail. I guess that the trade-off I had to make.
