Today I’m doing a Swiss Military Hanowa 6-4224.30.002 review, I’ve reviewed a couple of their watches previously and have always been impressed with the quality and affordability of their watches, I’m sure this one is going to be similar.

My Initial Thoughts On This Watch
I’ve been quite the fan of this brand for a while as they honestly offer great prices for these high quality watches. You can view a lot of their watches here, so if this one isn’t for you make sure you check out their other options. The watch utilizes a Swiss precision quartz movement meaning it will be highly accurate with very little time loss. It also has a nice oversize style to it with a casing of 46mm, I like watches that are larger with a 42mm+ case size so it’s very noticeable on your wrist.
With some solid construction and quality parts you can see why I’m in favour of getting this watch, I’ll look at the parts close in the sections below.
Type of glass
Normally in this price range you would find a hardened mineral glass however like with most the Swiss Military watches they’ve gone for a sapphire crystal. Sapphire crystal is much better at resisting scratches compared to mineral glass, it’s more expensive which is why you don’t often find it on watches in this price bracket.
Sapphire glass has a Mohs hardness rating of 9, so you’ll find you’d actually struggle to scratch it, it is however susceptible to breaking if dropped etc so do avoid doing that.
I mentioned earlier that this is a larger style watch with a casing diameter of 46mm and a thickness of 12mm. These give the watch a larger display and make it somewhat easier to read. A lot of people are into the larger style watches at the moment so if that’s something you like, I suspect you’ll like it on this watch as well
The Swiss Army watch has a simple date display as part of the chronograph, I’ll admit it’s not the easiest date function to read but I don’t think it’s the make or break of watch decisions these days.
Watch strap and clasp
The strap of the watch is made of a soft genuine leather with a standard buckle clasp. It’s in a tan colour and has a width of 22mm that sits perfectly with the larger size casing of the watch.

Swiss Military offer a wide variety of watches that offer great value for money, if you’re after something durable that would be ideal for outdoors use then definitely do consider this one. When you take into consideration the sapphire glass, Swiss quartz movement and the overall design of the watch, it’s hard not to like it to be honest, that’s why I’d be happy to recommend it.
