Great every day watch, be prepared to switch the bands frequently
on July 21, 2016
My sister bought me this watch when I graduated college in 2011. I still have and love it.
Never had to get the watch serviced. The battery is still strong after 5 years! No chipping of gold tinted stainless steel. The metal looks the same as when I bought it.
Obviously when you buy a watch with leather straps, you have to be willing to change them out every year or so. I am on my 3rd set of straps and love it. I dislike heavy watches or the cold feel of metal straps. Amazon has the 20mm leather bands for only $10 with free amazon prime shipping, so it's not a huge deal to get them.
The face of the watch does have a ton of scratches, but I wear my watch all the time. Playing basketball, carrying heavy groceries in from the car, you name it, I do it with my watch on. The only exception is that I avoid getting the watch wet. Even though the watch can handle getting wet, the bands definitely can't and immediately start to smell.
