This gold watch is handsome and as you would expect from Seiko, accurate. I imagine that it will tick for a very long time. The gold color on the stainless band is a very nice shade of gold, however I am concerned with how well it will wear. There are already a few parts of the band where the gold coloring has worn off. Theses are the areas that rub against my desk when I am typing. They showed up after only a week of wearing the watch and so I stopped wearing it while I type.These areas are quite small, but I don't want for them to get bigger. Overall, I am happy with this watch as an $80 watch. The band is "rolled" but still has a good feel to it. If you keep your expectations reasonable for $80, I can recommend this watch.
