    I just pulled mine out of the box and started wearing it again. Forget when I bought it, but survived several years in the infantry. Forgot how much I liked it. Also don't have to worry about banging up my Citizen Nighthawk.

    ...but first impression is otherwise less than stellar.

    More on that later

    Yes, it sure is.
    The lume seems very well done. I have one other watch with C3 X1, so I new approximately what I was getting.
    I knew from the spec there could be pitfalls, which there seems to be, but a field watch with a combination of C3 X1 lumed numbers, a titanium mid sized case, sapphire crystal and 100m WR was just too rare and too interesting to not give it a try.
    I'll write more about it when I have some more wrist time. And here I touch on the first problem I identified already when reading the specs. 18mm lug width is both more narrow than I prefer and something I don't have on any other watch, hence no selection of straps. The included strap seems pretty useless, and I forgot to add alternative 18mm straps to my order, so I have to get some new straps before I start wearing it.

    That was the main reason why I looked at it once when I got the email that they released a new watch...and immediately said “nope”. That and I wasn’t too crazy about the dial design.

    Yeah, I totally agree. Probably a wise decision on your end. Maratac is on to something that seems to be overlooked by most brands, but I fear they have made too many weird design choices to really pull it off. At least in this iteration.
