Ridge Field watch opinions

Hi, new here and just wanted to see if anyone has this watch.

It's sold by Ridge. They sell all kinds of different things so I'm pretty sure that they don't make it themselves. It has great specs and an even better price.

It's based on the Miyota 9039 movement and comes in a titanium case with a screw down crown and AR coated sapphire crystal. All of this for $275. Plus if you're new to them and sign up for their emails you'll get either 20% cashback or 30% towards your next purchase from them. I don't need anything else they offer so I would opt for the cashback, bring the cost down to $220.

What do you guys think?

I鈥檓 assuming US market only? These don鈥檛 appear for me.

No watch here for me either. Key chains, wallets, but no watches.

I don't know. I just added a picture so you can at least see what I'm talking about.

Not on the UK website - seems US only

Can't remember which pen/wallet/EDC company it is, but one of them uses RZE.

There is a Timex that looks almost the same and is only $160, if you are interested. It is the field post-solar; there are different looks to it. It also has a date which I like.

Clean design and good specs for money. Really depends on what's in your collection already :)

Just a small collection, just got started. But I like the field watch category. Hamilton Officers mechanical and a black and orange Seiko field watch.

I don鈥檛 have any experience with the brand, but $220 for titanium and Miyota 9039 is a very good price. Ridge are known for making over-engineered solutions to problems that may or may not exist. Perhaps something as simple as this field watch simply did not sell well for them and they are closing out the model. Don鈥檛 buy it just because it鈥檚 inexpensive. If you genuinely like it, then go for it.
