Android USA Interceptor AD449

It's been almost 3 years since I blogged my last Android USA watch, so it was about time I blogged another.

The Android USA watch brand was started in 1991 by the now CEO and lead (only) designer Wing Liang. The brand has the philosophy "high-quality production of cutting-edge designs with forward-looking technology and the support of excellent service.". The brand started with fashion watches, and now has a global reach from their base in Florida. The watches have a mix of materials to suit the design, and the movements are sourced from around the world.

This watch is a called the Interceptor (which may have been a range rather than just this watch). It is an analogue chronograph with a 3 jewel ISA Swiss quartz movement inside (based on information on the back). The design has a 3 hand design with two small dials. The small dials are at the 2 and 10 o'clock positions (which is unusual), and there is also a window showing the date running between the 3 and 5 o'clock positions. The seconds hand on the main dial is the one for the chronograph (and has the Android USA logo on the back end), along with the top left dial, with the clock seconds on the top right dial. Other information on the back is just the material (solid stainless steel), the serial number, the water resistance (100m/330ft), and that it was designed in the USA.

This model has the model number AD 449 (or more correctly AD449BBU with this colour combination), and came out in 2013.
