I personally believe far to many watch companies over brand. In this particular instance, I would have much preferred a simple logo on the crown to go along with the rest of the branding found on the dial.

The fixed bezel on the Forza is rather unique looking with four riders surrounding the crystal that do rest over the crystal edge in their respective locations. The riders will provide an added layer of protection against scratches and dings to the crystal. A large sapphire glass coated mineral crystal measuring a whopping 41mm in diameter provides are great view of the large stealth dial. The dial is so stealthy that with my poor eyesight I found it quite difficult at first to distinguish between the various complications. The numbers painted on the chapter ring, however, do allow for easily distinguishing the time. The Forza is a no date watch model with power reserve, month of the year, day of the week and 24 hour indicator complications. While I like the provided complications I have always found it a bit odd to have day of the week complication without a numerical date to go along with it which is probably just a personal preference. However, due to the stealth nature of this model a numerical date window would be counterproductive to the overall design. I prefer the choice of the gray enamel handset as it provides a perfect color contrast against the rest of the dial. The Detomaso crest as usual is present as the counter balance on the sweep second hand that is a nice added detail. No lume on this model as expected since it is a stealth/combat edition.

The case back is screwed down to the upper part of the case. The case back has general specification information etched around the perimeter about the watch model that is typical of many case backs and also includes an logo and the brand name at its center. Beneath the case back is a modern Japanese Miyota 9100 series automatic movement providing all the great complications found on this model. The movement has been as accurate as one may expect from the newer Miyota automatics.

Finishing off the Forza is fantastic leather strap, which reminds me of straps found on U-Boat models since the lug edge of the strap is covered by metal end cap. The strap edges at the lug appear to be held in place by screws on the underside of the end cap. I have to admit that I am concerned about the longevity of strap design. I’m not going to disassemble the strap but will make the assumption that the screws go through the strap and rest up against the other side of the metal end cap. If the screws are only resting up against the underside of the leather strap itself then obviously over time the strap will most certainly slip out of the end caps. The strap measures 22mm at the lug with no taper through to the tail end of the strap.  The strap is a substantial 4mm in overall thickness and is rather soft and pliable that will allow for a comfortable fit on the wrist. Two keepers are provided, one fixed and one floating, which are an important part of any quality strap in my humble opinion. The strap is finished off with a sturdy signed thumbnail style PVD buckle.

As I mentioned previously, Detomaso produces much more than budget friendly dive style watches and the Forza is a prime example. The Forza provides quality specifications such as the oversized sturdy case design, which is quite stealthy, large sapphire coated crystal, substantial strap and a reliable Miyota 9100 series automatic movement. If you are looking for a cool looking stealth watch with a modern design and some quality specifications then definitely check out the Forza.
