Product Description
The Ingersoll Bateman automatic strikes a balance between stylish and subdued, durable and elegant. The case, though made of stainless steel, has a copper-toned look to it that calls to mind an heirloom piece—but thanks to its water-resistance rating of 100 meters, it’s built for modern-day adventures Read More

I bought this exact watch from Shop HQ (thanks, @hruskap!) for $60 to give it a try. I thought that the dimensions were a bit large for my 6 1/2 inches wrist, but liked the looks of this timepiece. I was wrong about the size, since the curved lugs give it a nice fit, even on a smaller wrist like mine, with a total of 52 mm lug to lug dimension for a 45 mm across without the crown. The domed crystal is a nice plus, creating those cool visual effects when looking at it from the sides and the visibility is superb, with a clean dial, large hands and the iconic triangle pointing upwards at 12, which we came to expect from flieger type watches. Also the PVD brush finish with the bronze color on the case is quite nice. But there are two things that detract from the value of this watch. One is the lume, only applied on the hands, which is mostly fine initially, but fades quite quickly and is mostly invisible after an hour or so (but, hey, a $60 watch with no good lume doesn't make the news, does it?). The other one is the height of the case: at 15 mm, this case is tall and, for whatever reason, it seems even taller than it really is. I'm not sure why the manufacturer went with this look since the Miyota 8215 movement would have easily fitted in a far shallower case, which would have apppeared better proportioned. The leather strap is thick, but it has a signed bronze PVD finished buckle to match the case and even an additionally bronze finished pass through loop, which is a nice detail. All in all, if you can get this watch for $60, give it a try, it shouldn't disappoint. At $100, it may be hit or miss. At MSRP, forget it! (but everyone knows that none of these clocks ever sell at MSRP)

I found this watch on Shop HQ for $57.99. Good looking watch but this is too low of a reach for me. Here is the link. https://www.shophq.com/Product/ingersoll-men-s-bateman-45mm-automatic-black-dial-leather-strap-watch/686-485

There is nothing subdued about a 45mm case.

Is this watch named after actor Jason Bateman?

Pretty sure that's from Ben-Hur, not The Ten Commandments. Unmistakably Charlton Heston, anyway.

I've been waiting for someone to tie this together, so to speak.

Usually a Miyota (Citizen) 820A series, with a 40 hour power reserve. I have had this auto in about ten or so watches; I don't mind it ,usually runs about a minute or so fast every ten days. Personally apart from the usual non hacking; which doesn't concern me ; I think it is up to Seiko NH35 quality. But, ssh don't tell the Seiko boys!! For $99 if you like the size ;which is okay because of the pilot theme, then this is good value. After owning four Ingersoll watches , I would say quite good value. There are not many retailers where I live,but I found a boutique shop last week with a handful of Ingersoll and the prices asked were about 70% of what Drop say is RRP . so this one around $385 or so in the shop; then $99 quite good.

Looks like a nice watch for the price, except for the 45mm case size. Too big for my wrist!

Does this watch mean it doesn’t need a battery when it says automatic?
