The watch that refuses to die…
Received one of these as a gift approx 6 years ago and absolutely love it still. Since then I’ve purchased one for each of my two 20-something sons. If you are an active outdoors person, you will appreciate this sturdy, dependable, well-designed watch. Worn daily in all types of extreme weather and humidity conditions. Definitely 5-star construction and quality. Highly recommended.
Where have you been all my life?
If you are looking for some foo foo watch that looks like with your French cuffed shirt and match your cuff links… LEAVE THIS WATCH TO FOLKS THAT NEED THE TOOL THAT THIS WATCH IS. All joking aside, for the money you will not find a better timepiece. I recently purchased the LL Bean Classic Field watch, well two days later UPS was picking it up to be returned and delivering the new Bertucci A-2T Ti. NO REGRETS, for looks to fit and finish, this is a real winner.
Would I recommend this to a friend or family member… Hell yeah!!!!
Wife writes review as husband works all the time…
Shipping and receiving keeps his hands in constant motion, and means any bulk on his wrist just puts his hand at risk. He needs the date as well as seconds, and highly visible hands that won’t ‘fade’. He has lost too many expensive watches because the band ‘spring bars’ broke, or caused too much frustration trying to replace them. This Bertucci A-2T solves all these issues and is designed beautifully, for round-the-clock wearing. Thank you!
Bertucci wins over father in law
Clarity matters; especially for my active 97 year old father-in-law. He has worn a gold watch with gold hands for many years. Over the winter, I removed my Bertucci A2T and strapped it to his arm. He wore both watches ‘to decide’ if he likes it. He does. Thank you.
Non profit builder relies on his Bertucci
My name is Andrew. I am the director of a non-profit organization that builds schools and houses in third-world countries. I have been using a Bertucci watch as my number one way of keeping track of time and date during our trips abroad for the last 4 years, and I was wondering if Bertucci would be willing to donate another field watch for our projects.
If possible, I love the A-2T model in matte titanium, black face, and sapphire glass, as i feel it holds up superbly in the field and on job sites, and again, if possible, could you pair it with the DX3 nylon band in black. Please let me know if this is possible. I will gladly write a tax deductible donation receipt and would willingly submit a review of the watch. Again, you have a very happy customer, and I am thankful for any help you may offer.
Australian field validation guy… knows the good stuff
Australia, I have owned my Bertucci watch for five or six years now. It’s been knocked about in the field I am shocked that it has never had a problem. You guys are selling one hell of a product!
Durable watch for durable guy
In May of 2009, while visiting Dallas, I purchased a D-1T watch. I lived in Juneau, Alaska at the time. Similar to nature I abhor change (and jewelry) so I made this my only watch. I have worn it hiking; dunked it in saltwater; jarred while constructing bear-proof outbuildings, and battled harsh winter weather without this timepiece even losing minutes between required time changes. This has been the best watch I’ve owned, hands down. Now living in Oklahoma and operating a small farm, it keeps going–rather unblemished considering the mud and dust around here. I am so impressed by the quality and workmanship evident in my watch that I have recommended Bertucci to friends and colleagues. This note comes from someone who doesn’t normally write about such things but I just had to give the makers cudos for the great work.

Quality, durability and value for the money
Wanted to tell ya’ll how much I have enjoyed my watch! For the money, I have never had a better quality time piece that holds up to so much hard use. It’s just what I needed.
First response demands performance
Enzo, I wanted to let you know that as a firefighter paramedic in south Alabama I put my A-2T to the test daily. It has proven to be one of my most accurate and dependable pieces of equipment on a scene; especially medical ones. It has remained steadily consistent through extreme heat, copious amounts of water, grime and “stuff” of just about everything imaginable as well as extremely rough handling. I never take, my Bertucci off. Every watch prior to this one has had an average life span of a year: at best. My A-2T has been going strong since 2006! I won’t wear any other type of watch. Thank you for this fantastic product! Please keep up the good work.
Hi Enzo, I purchased my watch before pre-deployment training. It looked rugged, functional and capable. Now after being in theatre overseas, I have found that the watch has lived up to its looks. I am a bit of a watch collector, and I envision more Bertucci watches in my collection in the future. Cheers,
Motorcycle rider wrist is saved by Bertucci watch
Just wanted to write with a testimonial of your watch. I crashed my motorcycle today at 65 on the freeway and your watch saved my wrist and took a giant impact. I am amazed at how well the watch held up. I must admit of all my gear I was wearing including the motorcycle itself, the watch survived the impact the most intact. I am supremely impressed with your product and the extreme durability of it.
Rough guy breaks all others… but not his Bertucci
I have been wearing a Bertucci watch for a long time. My A-1S is the most comfortable watch I have ever owned. The band lets my skin breath easily which is great when you have skin problems like I do. The band doesn’t get caught on my arm hairs either, this adds to the comfort. It keeps great time; I check it against the atomic clock at my desk every day, in the last 5-6 months it has gained only 2 seconds. That is amazing. I am very hard on watches; I have broken and ruined many. With other watches I have snagged them on things and lost them altogether due to the pin design so common today. Bertucci’s solid pin design is smart. I have broken the crown off other field watches by getting it caught on clothing. I have completely smashed the crystal on many; mineral glass, sapphire, glass and plastic are no match for my clumsiness. They got the design on this watch right when they raised the rim of the bezel around the crystal high enough to protect it. Seems like common sense but I have never seen another watch like it. The quality of the band surpasses any other watch band. If I happen to get my hands on another band it won’t be because my watch needs a replacement it will just be out of vanity so that I can have another color. So, after over a year of wear, no scratches on the crystal, no sweaty rash under the band, no damage to the bezel, crown or anything else. I even took a photo of my watch just to prove how great this thing is holding up. My other watches are actually gathering dust. I’d recommend Bertucci watches to all of my friends; in fact if you ask them, you would find that with many of them I already have. Sincerely,
Matthew in Colorado
Incredible doctor without borders
I currently own the Black A-2T Vintage Bertucci. To give you a bit of history about your product that I have, I purchased it days prior before going overseas. I am a member of the medical humanitarian organization Medecins Sans Frontieres, aka Doctors Without Borders. I recently returned from a surgical project in Northern Sri Lanka for the last 9 months. Having read strong reports on your watch’s durability (and your testimonials), and already quite fond of the traditional field watch look, I purchased your watch last minute before going overseas. In all honesty, I also brought along a Brand X watch. Your watch quickly lived up to its reputation of ruggedness when the conditions we were exposed to and made short work of my Brand X’s band, and the Bertucci was my sole watch for my project’s duration. On one particular occasion, I had the infrequent opportunity to take holiday at a local beach and go SCUBA diving. While I’m aware of the watch’s 100 m WR, I refuse to dive without a watch and risked it (despite the fact that this is exactly what killed another watch I owned years ago). Like everything else that this watch was exposed to, be it sun, sweat, heat, dirt, insect repellent, scrapes and bangs, it performed flawlessly on the dive.
Since completion of my assignment in Sri Lanka, this watch has accompanied me throughout Europe (3 times), the Maldives, and Africa. If I so choose to bring an additional watch along on lengthy excursions, I have learned to also bring this one, as backup. If you work in developing and/or unstable locations, you learn quickly that the last thing you need is a shiny watch to stand out even more then you already do. However, being a watch enthusiast, I can appreciate the craftsmanship and vintage design that show through the subtle black coating. Originally I looked forward to returning home and purchasing a new watch to mark the occasion (after all, it was a bit hard to choose the black over your stainless models, lol.) However, I have grown quite fond of this reliable workhorse. The minor scratches the bezel acquired over this last year are reminders of my experience. To me, these imperfections have added to the watch’s character, the way I hope this last year’s have added to its owner’s.
Greetings from Australia.
I was looking at your website and found the section asking for a report on how the watch is performing (chaired by Enzo your sexy looking fox terrier). I work as a National Park ranger in far north Queensland, Australia. It a hot tropical environment, and all my past watches have become quickly damaged because of the nature of my work activities. I bought this watch over 2 x years ago now, it is on its second battery and it has not been damaged in any way at all. It is quite simply the best watch I have owned to date, and I’ve been through a whole string of work watches over the years. The robust design of this A-2T is an absolute winner, because of the recessed and flat glass surface there are NO scratches on it at all (this is something that had always quickly got damaged on all my precious watches). Also the solid shoulders on the watch is something that always eventually gave way on other watches as well. Even the design and construction of the nylon watch-band is really impressive. The band is durable and also comfortable and is easily washed when it gets dirty.
Apart from the durable design of this watch, it also looks great with the bold numbering and black face. It’s also easy to read at a glance, without needing to dig out the reading glasses. Anyhow I have to let you know that I really enjoy owning this watch. I find it is a rare thing to feel a pride of ownership towards a consumer item now-a-days, but this watch is one of my most valued possessions. I wear it everywhere. Even to weddings and formal social events. When (or if) it eventually wears out, I’ll be back to buy another one for sure. (I have even chosen my next Bertucci watch from your great website). Anyhow, I hope you stay in Business for years to come, and that you make truck-loads of money from selling your great product. You deserve it. Cheers for now,
Multi purpose American guy in Idaho…
Hey Enzo! I am George! I am writing to thank you for the great Bertucci watch that i have. I have it for over 2 years. I can say that this is for sure the watch that lasted me the longest. I never had a watch that lasted me longer that 6 months. I do a lot of hunting, fishing, hiking, rafting and construction work. The watch works great for me even after 2 years. I had to change the battery a couple of weeks ago. That is all. I am thinking of buying a new one. While i was working today I looked at my watch and decided to thank you for what I got from you.
Have a great day and good luck with the sales!
George S, Idaho
