The Venator Watch Company as come out with the Reticle, a field watch with a design inspired by a hunting scope and aimed at a military audience. The line comes with a Seiko movement, excellent lume, and prices starting at: $462 for the Reticle Stainless, $525 for the Reticle Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) and $595 for the Reticle Titanium.
That's a good price for a watch of this caliber and there's a transferable limited lifetime warranty on all parts manufactured by Venator Watch Company LLC. The Seiko (SII) Caliber NH35A 24 Jewel automatic movement [21,600 bph] comes with 2-year factory warranty, and then transferred and warranted by VWC.
