Hey guys I just got married 3 months ago. My husband really wanted the evolution for our wedding but it was too expensive for me to get at the time. Now I saw the avenger skyland that just came out. It has the same size face just a little bulkier. I know it's a new model does anyone have any reviews on it ? Should I buy it for him and surprise him on
Valentines Day?

hi, this really is a no brainer...yes! what a lucky man he is to have his wife suprising him with gifts like that! The skyland is a brilliant watch which he will no doubt love and don't think you have anything to worry about!
Good luck with the purchase.

Patrick

:yeahthat as paddymac said, yes it'd be a great buy.

In terms of reviews of the skyland, then the simplest thing to say is that it has an identical movement to the Chronomat Evolution, and the case is based on the Avenger platform that has been around for a reasonable amount of time now, so it should be a pretty bullet-proof timepiece.

(Hmmmmm, note to self - must try to drop a few hints to the girlfriend on the run up to Valentines Day! :wink: )

That would be a great suprise on Valentine's Day......Wear some lingerie and the watch and present both to him.

You're very welcome. I expect pictures for my trouble.

I'm sure your husband will appreciate your creativity!

Good luck, and keep us posted on how it went. Maybe he'll return the favor and get you a fine timepiece too.

:thumbsup:
