The AVI-8 Chronograph brings the instrument panel and cockpit of the Hawker Hunter to the wrist of the wearer. The angled-off squared shape emulates the key pieces of the Hunters instrumentation, an homage to the famed military jet that first flew in service for the RAF in the early 1950s. A sturdy yet precisely finished marine grade stainless steel 45mm dia. x 12mm thick case houses a Japanese quartz movement with retrograde chronograph with date display that sits under the dial. The dial itself is a perfectly designed assembly of indentations, tension rings and carefully positioned sub-dial frames that continue the look and feel of this watch as a piece of military instrumentation. Outlined hands are bold to offer clarity and visibility of all sub-dials on the multi-layered dial that offers depth and detail for the wearer. Featuring piston like pushers and level upon level of Hunter inspired aesthetic touches. Snugly strapped to the wrist with an adjustable hand stitched vintage genuine leather 22mm strap with buckle band closure. Water resistant up to 5 ATM. Includes a 2-year limited manufacturer warranty.

Pros: I ordered two screen protectors, one for my Garmin GPS and the other I trimmed down to cover the screen of my digital SLR camera screen. It was easy to work with a pair of scissors and I would rather srcatch the protector and replace it than scratch the screen. It's a no brainer on which is cheaper or easier to replace.

Pros: Works as advertised. Just a plastic protector that applies to the screen similar to other protectors that are applied to PDAs. Cons: Very expensive piece of plastic. Other than having the correct shape and size, it is not clear to me what drove the cost up.

Pros: Should help protect my expensive 496 from future sratches. Cons: Makes the screen image look a little fuzzy now. Way over priced. I only bought it because I don't want any more scratches to my 496. My real overal rating is a 3.5, really due to the price. I would be more inclined to recommend this product if it were priced between $10-$12, but how much is the screen protection worth? One of those Gotchas!

Pros: Protects screen. Cons: Cost to benefit ratio. Cover did not cover screen completely. A 1/8 inch gap was exposed all the way around.

Pros: Seems like it'll be durable. Doesn't detract from the screen quality on my 496 at all. Was very easy to apply, and you don't have to get it perfect on the first try, as it's easy to lift back up and re-align if you're not happy the first time. Cons: I thought it could have been fractionally larger, but certainly big enough to cover all but the very edges of the screen. I would definitely recommend this as an effective way of keeping a very expensive device scratch-free. I have always been ultra-careful with my 496, but quickly accumulated some tiny, almost invisible scratches. I decided to buy this to preempt the accumulation of enough of them that they would become noticeable.
