Best Watch I've Ever Owned
on September 19, 2011
I had this watch for about four years, and I have to say that it's the best watch I ever owned. In fact, the only reason that I've ordered it again is because my old one fell into the black hole that is my house and unfortunately I don't think it's going to reappear any time soon. I still mourn its loss and hope that some day it will find its way back.
This watch stood up to everything I could throw at it and was especially resistant to water. It stood up to swimming in lakes, swimming at the beach, snorkeling at Discovery Cove (with depths down to about 25 feet), rapids rides at theme parks, getting knocked around on rocks while hiking, ultimate frisbee, painting and any other activity I wanted to do. It's also been stolen by my cat who, although an accomplished gnawer and destroyer of my things, couldn't manage to do much damage. I'm not sure I could have destroyed it if I had tried, short of repeatedly smashing it under a heavy rock.
The only time I ever saw a little bit of water get into the casing was when I raised my hands upward on Kali River Rapids and managed to get my wrist caught square in a particularly powerful water jet shooting out of the wall; even so, there was no damage to the watch and the droplet in the watch face disappeared within a day. Water never got into the watch face again, and everything still worked perfectly (and as of roughly a month ago, still does).
Even scratched, banged, filthy, and gnawed on I loved my old watch... and now, I have a feeling that I'm going to love my new one just as much.
