Here's Forum Member Stan's Review of the "6"
Well, here it is! The all new RLT 6 quartz military style watch.
The first thing that will happen is people trying to compare this watch with the redoubtable CWC G10. That would be unfair on all levels apart from appearance.
The G10 was made to fulfil the needs of the Armed Forces and would, no doubt, have cost the MOD a small fortune when procured.
The RLT6 is a military style quartz watch for public consumption and should be judged as such, so I will.
The dial is very similar to other mil style watches, easy to read with clean numerals and hands. The hands are a little wider than the CWC’s and so are easier to see. The date aperture is at 3 o’clock. A flat mineral crystal is fitted to the watch as standard.
The case is stainless steel with a brushed finish to add to the military appearance of the watch, the crown is heavily protected by the case as the photographs show. The watch back is screw on, also in steel.
My sample came fitted with a USA oiled leather strap.
Quartz will cause different emotions in different people. I don’t have a problem with quartz and this movement will have come from a major manufacturer and will be as accurate as is expected of such a movement. I don’t know if it is jewelled or if that is really significant.
So what is it like, you ask.
Worth every sodding penny of £45! It looks really well on my wrist and is a perfect size for me. I can make out the hands even with my specs off, that’s a bonus for me. If the lume stays bright all night I will be able to see the hands in bed ( I don’t wear specs in bed which is a good thing these days).
The RLT6 is a very practical, good value for money wristwatch that many companies would sell at twice this price.
It looks well made and attractive on the leather strap but would also look equally good on a Nato.
Not an expensive watch, not a large or imposing watch but one that will find many friends amongst the watch loving public (us).
The manufacturer should be proud of this one too.
