Watch is beautiful and looks good in an adventurous or casual environment with it's gold face. It is a bit heavier than many sport watches (i.e. Casio, Suunto, etc.) with resin bands. As far as the resin band, it tends to split after months of use necessitating replacement. I've owned two of these watches in five years and have cycled through 6 watchbands.
Overall, the watch is a good value, and even after battery replacements waterproof integrity has not been compromised.
Give us a more durable band Casio. If you did this, the AMW320D-9EV Analog/Digital Watch would be a superlative watch.

The watch has a nice weight to it, which gives it some substantiality. I didn't have a problem with the band tearing after much use, but even if so, the watch is quite fine, considering the price. So a watch band replacement shouldn't knock it down 2 stars - should still stay at 5 stars!

Apparently band durability is more important to him than it might be to you & i. That's okay though, because he presented his points objectively enough so that prospective buyers can make their own conclusion in that regard.
22mm seiko urethane dive straps are very durable. Just 1/2 the cost of the watch per current pricing.

Can't agree. The reviewer has a point. If you have to replace the watch band often, it could easily exceed the original price of the watch.
