Obviously when you treat a watch like that it's going to get some nicks and scratches, but the face was buffed for free by my local swatch store and it still looks great. The build quality of this watch
Obviously it would have been great if the watch had a real tachy, but I can forgive it for the functions that it does have.
The watch looks much better in person and it has held up style wise through the five years. I can wear it with with a suit or jeans and a t-shirt and still get compliments on the watch.
I've been looking for a second watch to wear for what has been 2 years so I can mix up my watches a bit. Nothing came close to until I bought a Casio gw7900b-1, but even that doesn't have the versatility to be worn in a formal setting like this does.
I can't recommend this model enough. If you can somehow find it in stock, buy it.
