TheÂ lastÂ time we looked at a watch from Momentum, it was a model that packed a lot of functionality into it’s titanium case. Â Today, we’re going in a different direction in their catalog, with a simpler women’s model, one of their newest – theÂ Alter Ego.
This is a sport watch, first and foremost. Â With the rubber strap (in black or white) and lightweight aluminum case, this is not a watch that would weight you down in any way. Â The dial itself (also in black or white) is legible, and nicely lumed (as are the hands), meaning that the piece should perform for you whatever the activity.
There’s a Â twist on this particular model, Â is a literal one – you can twist out and exchange the aluminum bezel. Â There are eight different colors available – and they can drastically change the look of the watch. Â If you recall, one of my favorite things on theÂ Model CÂ was the interchangeable bezel – and I find it a plus on this watch.
Of course, I’m not the target audience for this one. Â So, what did my lovely wife think of it?
The Alter Ego is a nice, Â and comfortable watch. The strap itself isn’t necessarily my taste, but it contributes a lot to the comfort.
I like the plain numerals / clean design of the dial, and I find the date really helpful to have.
I thought that the bezel was the easy to change, and the black/black combo ended up being my favorite.
Overall the watch is sportier than I’m used to – but I could see wearing this regularly.
Now, all told, $160 (AmazonÂ has some color combos at a lower price), plus an additional $25 for each additional bezel, you’re not going grab this on a whim. Â But, if you consider that you do get two bezels off the bat, and you’re getting an attractive package that can stand up to an active day, I think it’s worth considering when looking for a new watch for yourself (we do have women in our readership, I hope) or the woman in your life.
