• ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I love this watch!

    I couldn't find the facebook post where people were trashing the clip watch idea or I would comment there. I work in construction and I have to wear gloves that would cover a wrist watch. This one hangs on a clip that also holds my glove clip and a couple of keys. This clips in my belt. If you prefer a wrist watch they sell those too. -Kristin Clark N.

  • ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Definitely Got My Money's Worth

    I don't particularly enjoy wearing watches but need to carry one for my job, this has been a great solution. the microlight is brighter than I expected and the overall build is/feels very sturdy, I definitely got my money's worth with this product. - Lachlan B.

  • ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Just awesome...

    Just a beautiful watch - very rugged, very practical and it looks epic. Couldn't be happier with it. - Kevin C.

  • ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Excellent! I Wear It Everyday!

    I have used the discontinued Angler Clip watch for 20 years -went through 2 of them- and finally replaced the last one with the Ana Digi Miniclip a month or so ago. It is smaller and lighter and looks more discreet but very handsome. I wear it on a belt loop on my pants every day and use it many times a day and fully expect to continue to receive excellent heavy duty service for years to come. It is almost as essential as my eyeglasses or my shoes, that is how much I value it. -Steve Manning
