Storm Transit

Today is number 27 in my Storm watch collection, and is a relatively simple design, so I expect this to be a short post.

This model is called Transit, and is a quartz analogue watch. It has a 3 hand dial design, with a design for the face and hands which is very recognisable as a Storm (but it's difficult to explain exactly why).

The face is surrounded by a blue, semi-transparent bezel which has been moulded with the minutes numbers (in 5's) with the Storm name instead of zero. The bezel actually rotates, which is a surprise as it looks purely decorative. The case is stainless steel, with a screw-on back, and has a water resistance rating of 50m.

The strap is unusual for a Storm watch, being a more solid bracelet design. It has metal sections (metal plate wrapped around the plastic core) with blue plastic wedges inbetween each segment. This makes the bracelet quite stiff, but also it means it needs to be cut to size (so make sure it's large enough if you buy one second hand).

I haven't found a date for the watch, but from its design I'd guess that it's a newer model from the late 2000s or early 10s.
