Golden color wears off - not for everyday use
on November 15, 2012
I also bought the SNA413 at the same time (silver with white dial). I used to like the golden one better because it looked more classy and white hands on a black dial are easier to see than white hands on a white dial (SNA413).
However, the golden color rubs off and as a result, after only a couple of years, the watch is no longer very presentable. I hardly wear it anymore.
On a positive note, I shower and swim and dive with my watches and in about 5 years of use I have not had any water in either.
Mechanically, this watch is on the lower end of the quality spectrum.
Overall, I don't recommend gold tone stainless steel for a watch that is worn daily, because once the gold wears off it makes you look like you wanted a golden watch but couldn't afford one.
