Adults' Katahdin 36mm Field Watch is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bring back the old watch version I purchased the Katahdin 36mm Field Watch with the blue face. I really like the face but that's about all. It's easy to see both day and night. Unfortunately, the case and band are disappointing. The case is a shiny chrome vs the subdued brushed look on the old version. It just doesn't have the quality look of the old watch. The band looks and feels cheap. Bring back the old version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp looking watch After ordering it online, I was a bit skeptical about its appeal, for it looks too bulky in the pictures here on LLB website. I received it today and as I opened the box, I gasped! It is a beauty. The finish is very fine and the watch looks very good and very well made. The strap, though thick is soft and supple and easily wraps around the wrist giving a snug fit. All in all, I'm very impressed with it. I hope LLB comes out with different colors -- dark green dial, dark blue straps, etc. I would buy another one if there was more variety in colors. The dial, at 36mm, is just rightly sized and looks proportionate to most writs -- and not hideously large like a wall clock that some premium brands do with their > 40mm dial diameters! Well done, LLB!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An enduring classic I have owned some version or other of the LL Bean field watch since I was in college in the 1980s; I wear it every day. These watches are no-frills/no-nonsense, affordable, durable, and backed by LL Bean's excellent service. I've always liked the understated design. I still have a long-serving black-faced model but also wanted one with a brown strap and white face. I'm extremely pleased with my purchase. Like others in its line it is flat, not bulky, and its face is elegantly simple and readable. The leather strap quickly wears in to fit your wrist comfortably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Katahdin Field Watch I owned my first Katahdin field watch for over ten years and lost it in a stream when the strap came undone. I couldn't find it at that time so I ordered another one the same day. Two weeks later I was fishing in the same spot and I saw my watch at the bottom of the stream. I reached down to pick it up and saw that it was still ticking ! Now I have two !! Great watch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size, good-looking This watch fits very well on my 6.5 inch wrist. It is a clean, simple look, and the black dial and polished stainless steel case give it a slightly dressier appearance than many other field watches, making it suitable for a variety of situations. The band is comfortable and works well with the watch style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this watch! I have looked at watches similar to this one in various stores for about 3 years. Never quite felt like I'd found "the right one". Then I spotted this one on the L L Bean website, ordered it, and love it, Since it's advertised as a man's watch, I was leery it would fit. But it fits great. I have a small wrist but the face is perfect, not too large. I love the band; it has enough "holes" in it that it fits nicely without being too loose. Very stylish looking watch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking watch Just got my watch today so I can only speak as to current status. Great looking watch, great price, fast shipping. I'm 56 and like simple things. This watch is a classic, simple watch. I've never had a leather band so this will take some getting used to. Overall very happy with my purchase. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from after a year, it lost time Initially satisfied, sad to say the watch is letting me down after a year of daily & gentle wear. I've been late to events as a result. The first time the discrepancy was noticed I corrected it – but found the error continued at an estimated rate of more than a minute per day.
