The applied polished chrome markers against the gloss black dial almost look like diamonds in certain light, which even though it’s a divers watch, gives it a little bling factor. And like many female watches I have seen, Momentum did not leave the date off the M1 Mini. One of the things I noticed, is that for as small of a watch it is, (especially compared to the size of watches I wear); both the crown and bezel are easy to manipulate, even with my larger hands.
The case back is no nonsense, as it is with most Momentum Watches, just the name brand and model number and other pertinent info. Momentum is mostly known for outdoor, rugged tool watches, and this one is no different.
The solid link bracelet is not your standard oyster link, but a more modern and edgy “H” link and uses friction pins to hold it together, and is equipped with a diver clasp with flip-lock safety. For its size, it is solid and has a nice weight unto itself. If you prefer a rubber strap, Momentum offers that as well, and the price is about $50 cheaper than the stainless model.
On my girlfriend’s 6-¼ inch wrist it looks very good and she says it is very comfortable and gets many compliments on it. About 3 links were removed to fit her wrist.
Even with its small dial and markers, the lume on the Momentum M1 Mini is surprisingly good and glows for about a good 3 hours or so before fading out. For someone like my girlfriend who never had a decent watch, the lume was something she really enjoyed, not having to push a button or anything to see the time in the dark.
Now, this watch is not a high-end fashion piece like a Chanel or ladies Rolex, but if you are a woman who wants to get a nicer piece that you can wear and dish out whatever, while still having a solid classic look, this would be a very good choice. And if you are someone like a boyfriend, husband, son, etc looking to get your special woman a nice gift, this is a great option. It has the basic look of a Rolex or Tag Heuer, without being a homage and not breaking the bank.
And if your lady likes a bigger size, this is also available in a 39mm, with the Momentum M1 and M1 twist.
