For an automatic watch in this price point, the Kent is decently finished. The brushing is uniform. The dial is slick and well laid out. But the lume shoots for the moon. On wrist, just passing through a dim room, the watch will light up. There are also a lot of Easter eggs in the design which will delight military buffs.
The OPUS 39 V2 is a well-built timepiece. It has heft and weight to it. It is a simple, yet elegant sports watch. The crystal is absolutely gorgeous and easily the first thing you notice out of the box. It is proof that more is not always better in terms of design.
In the end, I can't decide if the Intrepid X is a luxury timepiece in the guise of a toolwatch, or a toolwatch hiding in a luxury timepiece. I suppose it's both.
