Not as Good as I Hoped!
on July 8, 2013
I bought this watch because of the technology described above and touted finish, but became very disappointed in less than a year with the finish of the watch and band. The "titanium carbide nitride and gold-tone stainless steel" finish does not last. Within a year, with normal wear, the finish has become quite worn and looks like a cheap watch. With the good reviews I read prior to buying, and the heavy marketing Seiko performed concerning the watch/band finish, I thought I had a real keeper for years to come. Unfortunately, I quit wearing the watch after about 14 months because it no longer had the professional look I wanted. Color me disappointed.
