BUYER BEWARE: This is a fine, handsome, attractive watch and can be read in the dark easily. However, I believe it has a design flaw that makes it NOT resistant to water, as advertised: "•Water resistant to 330 feet (100 M): suitable for snorkeling, as well as swimming, but not diving".
I purchased this in 8/2014 and enjoyed it for 4 months until I wore it in a shallow pool for about 30 mins. Shortly after, there was moisture droplets on the inside of the crystal and some fogging, which has not gone away some 1.5 weeks later. I tried to obtain refund/ repair costs from the seller, but no go since this discovery was beyond the 30 day return policy and their statement that "water damage is never covered under a watch guarantee". They did identify the likely cause-- that the crown was not shut down tight enough. But, unlike many other watches that really can claim water resistance, this one does not have a clicking sound feedback when the crown is pushed in and it is not screw in. The user is left to wonder if it is tightly closed or not. So I then tried to get compensation under Amazon's A to Z Guarantee Program, but struck out there since they rejected my common sense argument that I purchased something that was not as advertised. There is no mention of this apparent design flaw on the seller's page. No matter-- So I am stuck with having paid >$100./month for use of a nice watch. Bummer!!
