The Momentum M1 Mini is the updated of the original M1 model. The new ladies M1 moel dive watch has been completely redesigned to look even better but remains just as durable and functional as the last generation of a dive watch.

This watch is a perfect size watch for women, without being overly heavy or too large. The watch is also easy to read with a uniquely shaped date window with oversized numbers is immediately something your eyes are drawn to. The black dial and black bezel are matched perfectly, making the watch look more elegant and sophisticated even with any outfit.

The Momentum M1 Mini bezel, dial, and hands

The hands have a beefy hour and minute hands, both are LUM’d hands, which is very great under low-light condition, Second-hand is like an arrow with Lume as well.  This hand looks great against the black dial.

The dial is black and very easy to read with hour markers in white making it readable even from afar or low-light. You will also notice the pattern that is on the dial, wave pattern makes the dial readable even when it is broad daylight, it is an anti-reflective design, along with anti-reflective glass.

The date window is placed at 3 o’clock, a common position for most dive watches, this is one large date window and actual date numbers. It is very easy to read even in a quick glance at the watch. The numbers on the date window have been adjusted or stretched, when it shows 2 numbers one or both numbers are again stretched to fit the large end of the date window opening. Some people may find this unique and like this, personally I would prefer a uniform size font used for the date window.

The font used on the number 12 on the dial is a different font that what we are used for the number on the ring and bezel, which makes it a bit cartoony, the other font used on the bezel and inner ring seems to be a standard Arial font. The font used on the 12 has a large curvature of the number. It would have been nice if they used the same fonts.

The bezel is very easy to manipulate and grab a hold of and turn. It has deeply grooved teeth all the way around and 6 larger areas that your fingers naturally grab when turning the bezel. The bezel is black, it has a silver number printed on it. There is a large LUM dot on the 12-position. One issue on the bezel is that it is kind of loose, the bezel does not solidly and firmly lock into place with each click, this bezel spins very very easily and never really locks into place.

The Momentum M1 Mini strap

Initially, the Momentum M1 Mini comes with a rubber strap, perfect for water activities. Luckily, the Momentum M1 Mini strap is easy to change, if you should choose to wear it with other strap materials such as NATO or mesh.
