Bertucci has now released a super limited-edition A-1S field exclusively in Japan. Fret not, however. If you want your hands on one, it’s fairly easy to nab even if it’s locked to the country on paper.
Just make sure to do so before stock runs out. This variant of the watch reverts to a classic field watch dial complete with luminous clock hands and markers. It comes in a black PVD 36mm stainless steel unibody case. Make no mistake — this thing screams luxury. Yes, even if its strap isn’t as fancy as those found on other options on the market right now. Selling for approximately $130, it’s also very, very inexpensive for a noteworthy watch.
You’ll find Japanese quartz movement, unsurprisingly. The watch boasts a four-year battery life and a black NATO strap with PVD black hardware. More specifically, it’s a long-lasting U.S. Patented B-TYPE Heavy-Duty Zulu nylon webbing band. Whether you’ll enjoy the understated design depends on your taste on accessories. This one, you should note, leans more toward the subtly sublime, replete with clean lines and minimalist aesthetics.
Other things of note are hardened mineral glass crystal, 100M water resistance. Bertucci, in case you didn’t know, is considered one of the world’s leading field watch makers. Nearly all of their offerings come in titanium, boasting one of the most impressive strength to weight ratios of any material. Not only that, the watches themselves are robust and highly reliable, and they feature all-original metal hardware.
