Aesthetics & Functionality
The black dial with white and red hands gives it an almost sporty look, and the Japanese quartz movement which powers this one certainly isn’t a feature you would have seen years ago. The design within the dial itself features carbon fibre fabric giving it a leather look, very appealing to the eye.
The sporty feel continues with the chronograph functions inside the 41mm case, showing off 60 seconds, 60 minutes and 1/10 of a second sub-dials with a smaller date window added in for extra measure. The accuracy within the 98B245 watch is second to none and is reported to be as good as 1/1,000-second precision over twelve hours. The positioning of these dials works well, sitting in a triangular pattern making it easier to distinguish each individual dial.
This watch combines style, comfort, and affordability and although I feel that it clashes between classical and sporty, it does look and work great.
The stylish face gives a stark contrast between the black dial and white luminous sweeping hands, making it even easier to see in different lighting. The Japanese- Quartz movement which works out to be three times more accurate than the standard Quartz, provides excellent timekeeping and with the addition of the three subdials within the face, there is no reason to ever be late again.
