On the wrist, the Reactor Fallout 2 is extremely comfortable. I don’t know what it is, but Reactor has a way of balancing the weight between the case and bracelet. While this is a thick, solid case and bracelet, it does not feel that way on the wrist. Again, for reference purposes, my wrist is 7.5 inches, so you can see how the lug to lug fares on me. It is pretty much end to end across my wrist, so if you have a smaller wrist than 7.5 inches, it might have some overhang, just another thing to keep in mind.
Ah, the Reactor Lume. The lume on this Fallout 2 can easily be equated to the Seiko Monster lume, which as many know, Seiko is the bar that most will compare lume to. I will say Reactor is no slouch in this department, and it is on par if not surpassing the Monster lume.
At the price of $399, I would say the Reactor Fallout 2 is a decent value. I know some out there have issues with quartz, but these are meant to be hard use watches, and with the way they construct and machine their watches, they do seem to live up to that hype. The styling is attractive and rugged, it feels great on the wrist, has great lume and a reliable Miyota movement. This is my third or forth hands on review with a Reactor watch, and I look forward to reviewing more. Reactor Watches do not sell directly online, only through dealers and retailers, so look them up if you are interested. I do know Princeton Watches offers the full line of Reactor watches and currently are throwing in a $60 Reactor Stainless pen with the purchase of this watch.
Thank you to Reactor for providing this sample for Review.
