Hey guys!

Almost a year ago I tried on a few of the new Waltham Watches, the XA, CDI and the ETC.

After thinking about it for awhile I decided to pull the trigger!

A brand new Waltham XA Black Matter is now on my wrist.

I wanted something completely different, something that would define this era for my collection, a larger modern sports watch.

The last two high end watches that I had in my collection were a Rolex Datejust and an Omega Speedmaster.

These watches had metal bracelets and I wanted something this time that was more of a sports watch, I'm done with the metal bracelet watches.

I absolutely LOVE the fact that this Waltham XA Black Matter has a vulcanized VulCarbone rubber strap with deployment buckle.

It literally fits my wrist like a glove, it is extremely comfortable!

The case measures 47mm going across, about 3mm smaller than a G-Shock.

Dubois-Depraz automatic caliber 14060 movement featuring 29 jewels, reference W.DB-001, 28,800bpm, 44 hour power reserve.

Black Titanium case, ceramic bezel, embossed black dial, Super-LumiNova, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, screw down crown, waterproof.

I could not be happier with this purchase!

Antonio DiBenedetto the owner of Waltham Watches and his design team knocked this one out of the park in my opinion!

Good looking Stan. Nice to have another "yard watch."
