Axcent Stealth X5910

Today's watch is back to a Scandinavian brand, so is from close-to-home, even though I bought it in Japan.

The watch is by Axcent of Scandinavia, and this model is called Stealth (although, as it is large and white, I don't find it too stealthy). The Axcent brand aims to bring Nordic design into the world of watches, and they started this in the late 90s. This particular model was designed by Daniel Jakobsson who was their head designer from 2002 to 2009. Most of the Axcent watches I have were designed by him, so it seems that he was a very prolific designer for the brand.

The Stealth is an LED watch with a large bright 4 digit LCD display. The digits are hidden behind a semi-transparent window and only can be seen when lit (which must be where the Stealth name comes from). The case is square with a white front under the glass, inset into a silver steel frame. There are two buttons on the right side, one for showing time, and the other for date, with the time setting button being inset on the left side. The design is completed by the strap which is wide and leather with a matching white colour..

The back has the Axcent logo, model number (X5910), designers name and signature, and the technical info (stainless steel, and 5 atm water resistant).
