If you’re in the market for a knock around watch that’ll serve double duty for both work and play, you might want to consider the 5.11 Tactical Sentinel Watch. Combining a reliable Swiss quartz movement and heavy-duty construction, the Sentinel feels right at home in the field or the office. We recently had the opportunity to test out 5.11′s Sentinel Watches on our recent trip to Moab.

如果你跑遍市场去寻找一块能够适应工作与休闲双重任务的手表,那么你应该考虑下这款5.11战术哨兵手表。混合了可靠的瑞士石英机芯和高强度构造,这块哨兵无论在家里、野外还是办公室都让人感觉良好。恰逢我们近期到莫阿布的旅途,有了个机会去户外测试下5.11战术哨兵手表。

When selecting a watch that’s going to serve a dual purpose of being used on adventures and around town, there are a couple of key elements to always look for. First and foremost, how is the watch constructed? Will it survive in the applications you intend to use in and can it take some abuse? The second thing to look for is look and feel. When you put the watch on your wrist, does it feel comfortable and how does it look? And finally, what about value? Are you getting a lot for your hard-earned dollars spent or just buying a name? Let’s walk through the Sentinel and look at each of these areas.

当选择一块将要在户外冒险和城镇日常双重用途中使用的手表时,有几个关键要素是通常要考虑的。首先最重要的是,这块手表的构造如何?它能够在你即将要应用的场合幸存下来并且能够承受一些使用上的恶习吗?第二件需要关注的是外观和佩戴的感觉。当你将手表佩戴在你的手腕上时,是否感觉舒适?外观如何?最后,它的价格如何?你花费大量来之不易的血汗钱买来的是否只是一个品牌名字而已?让我们在哨兵的测试中来关注以上这些区域。

Let’s face it. Timepieces can take a beating in the outdoors. Whether we’re hunting, hiking, or just spending some time on the trail, simply being active in the outdoors can expose a watch to any number of potential hazardous situations. The case can get banged up against the rocks, the crystal can get smashed against your gear as you’re going for something in your bag, or the strap can get caught on branches or shrubs. On top of all that, you have all the elements to contend with. Moisture can wreak havoc on any watch’s internals and be the death knell.

让我们面对它。钟表有可能在户外活动中遭受很大的冲击。无论我们在狩猎、徒步或仅仅是旅途中的消磨时间,任何户外的简单行动都可能将一块手表暴露在众多潜在的不利状况之中。例如手表可能和岩石发生碰撞,镜面有可能在你翻找背包里的物品时被碰碎,表带有可能被树枝或灌木挂住等等。除了这些之外,你还有更多的损害因素去面对。潮气能够严重损坏任何手表的内部构件甚至是为它敲响丧钟。

To combat the outdoors and the abuse, the Sentinel is constructed from a heavy-duty 316L stainless steel case. While it has some heft to it, the case isn’t over the top or big just for the sake of being big like many watches on the market today. The dial is protected by a scratch and chip resistant mineral glass that’s been treated with an anti-reflective coating to minimize glint. This makes the watch easier to read in direct sunlight or when the sun is on the horizon and right in your face. In order to protect the watch’s internals from moisture, 5.11 utilizes both a screw down crown and caseback on the Sentinel to keep water and sweat far away from the movement. A thick, 24mm heavy-duty silicon strap ensures the watch stays securely on your wrist and ready for duty in the elements.

为了与户外环境及使用恶习战斗,哨兵有一块由316L不锈钢制造而成的表壳。虽然这带给它一定的体积和重量,但这块表壳在同类产品中并不是最大或最重的,也没有因此像今天市场上多数手表那样变得很大。表盘被一块防刮防碎的无机玻璃所保护,玻璃上有防反射涂层以将反光减至最低。这使得手表即便在阳光直射或是阳光位于地平线正好冲着脸庞的情况下都能轻易地读取时间。为了保护手表内部不受潮气影响,5.11采用了螺旋把头和不锈钢表壳底盖的双重防护来保证活动中任何水分或是汗液都不能进入内部。一条厚实的24MM重装硅胶表带确保手表牢牢固定在你的手腕上并准备好应对任何任务需求。

In regards to comfort and looks, the Sentinel feels at right at home when you’re wearing it. It looks sharp and the design is both clean and functional. The color combinations used on the Black, Coyote, and Granite/Black models go nicely together and the phosphorescent hour and minute hands make the watch easy to read even in low light conditions. The overall size of the case sits nicely on the wrist without being bulky or heavy. While personally I’m not a fan of most silicon bands having lived in hot climates for most of my life, this strap is comfortable and doesn’t irritate skin. Even when the temperatures warmed up, I didn’t find myself fidgeting with the strap or wanting to taking the watch off. All in the all, the watch looks sharp whether you’re hiking in the woods or meeting some friends for a couple of beers at your favorite sports bar.

关于舒适度和外观,当你在家中佩戴着它的时候,哨兵让人感觉良好。它的外观简洁而锐利,设计上兼具了简洁性和功能性。色彩上混合使用了黑色、泥色、以及花岗岩/黑色模块,显得十分漂亮,分针和时针上都涂有磷光材料,使得即便是在低视度状况下也能轻易地读取时间。整个表盘的尺寸刚好能漂亮地坐落于手腕上,却也不显得笨重或过大。虽然个人由于大半辈子都生活在炎热的气候中从而对硅胶腕带并不感冒,却也不得不承认这条表带很舒服,并且对皮肤不产生刺激。即便是当温度升高时,我也没有发觉自己由于表带(的束缚)而觉得焦躁从而想要脱掉手表。总而言之,这块表的锐利外形无论你是在树林中徒步还是在自己最喜欢的体育酒吧里和几个朋友来几杯啤酒时都显得很适合。

When looking at the final consideration of value and what you’re getting for the money spent, the 5.11 Tactical Sentinel Watch is a solid buy. The watch retails for $209.99 on the 5.11 Tactical website. Given the heavy-duty construction and the quality of the materials used, the Sentinel watch should provide you with years of trouble-free use and enjoyment. I have to say that I’m a big fan of the screw down crown and caseback as these features aren’t always found on watches in this price point. I’ve seen my fair share of watches fail after moisture has seeped inside the case and rusted out the internals so this is always something I look for. You can tell that a lot of thought went into the Sentinel’s design and material selection. It’s been nicely executed as a production timepiece, especially from a company whose mainstay isn’t watches.

当专注于最后的价值考量以及花费钱财后你将得到什么的问题上时,5.11战术哨兵手表绝对是一个值得的买卖。在5.11的官网上手表零售价为209.99美元。考虑到重装设计的结构以及所使用材质的质量,哨兵手表应该能提供给你数年的无忧使用以及良好体验。我必须说我个人是螺旋把头和不锈钢表壳底盖的大粉丝,更何况在这个价格点上你很难找到同时拥有这些特征的同类产品。我有太多的手表由于潮气渗入内部后导致生锈而无法再使用,因此这就是我一直以来要找的。对于哨兵的设计及材质选择有太多可圈可点的地方。对于一块量产的钟表来说(哨兵)是相当漂亮的创作,更何况它是来自于一个主业并不是(造)手表的公司。
