Yes, friends, it’s that time once again to dive into the MTM catalog to see what we can come up with. Â Today, we’ll be having a look at the Air Stryk.
This particular model shares a lot of similarities with the Silencer model we look at a while ago. Â While the Silencer hid it’s digital display, the Air Stryk makes it quite visible – meaning you could easily track two time zones with the digital and analog readouts.
This also means you’ve got a plethora of alarms, timers, and counters. Â Hold on tight, because here’s a quick rundown of all this piece has on tap:
- Time Display: am / pm, hour, minute, second.
- Date Display: month-day or day-month, alarm, timer.
- Preset Time Zones: 58 cities
- User Defined Time Zones: 2 cities.
- Alarms:Â Â 5 daily alarms, 1 schedule alarm (date alarm)
- Chrono range:Â 23 hours 59 minutes 59.99 seconds, 10 + 1 lap records
Given all this, it’s not surprising to see that you’ve got a quartz movement hiding in the 45mm stainless steel case (12.5mm thick). Â While the analog hands (and indices) are lumed, you also have an EL backlight for the digital displays.
Along with the steel case, you’ve got a screw-down crown and sapphire crystal that can help the watch take a beating, as well as go to water depths of 200 meters. Â And though the crown screws down, the pushers do not screw down, like we saw on the Silencer. Â On one hand, it makes it easy to start timing something while the watch is on your wrist (or silence an alarm); on the other, you couldÂ accidentallyÂ flip modes.
And that’s where we’ll leave things for today. Â Tomorrow, we’ll take a closer look at the strap that came along with the watch, and give my overall conclusion.
