So, how green is this dial? It reminds me of metallic green foil wrapping paper that people used to use during Christmas holidays. It is as green as a grasshopper sitting on a frog on lime jello in a field of clover. That is VERY green. The watch looks great with its OEM titanium deployment band or on a Crown & Buckle Sheffield strap.

The case design is reminiscent of Swiss Army's Dive Master 500 watches that incorporate a crown guard right into the case. This bulk gives the watch a stocky bull dog look. A screw down crown is included for extra protection from the elements, though the Ground Forces watches are only rated for 100 meters water resistance. This is no Navy Seal watch.
This is probably the only Swiss Army model that has this exact metallic "fly green" sunburst dial. I have searched the Internet to find other Swiss Army models that uses this eye-popping color and did not find a single example. I did find a few runner-ups though.
