I love the actual watch, it's feels very solid and has been faultless even after a few knocks. The shame of it is the poor design of the metal strap. The last link which the pin goes through to connect the strap to the watch is only about 10mm wide, where as the whole gap is 22mm, the gap on either side is covered up by the flimsy metal half polished plate you see in the photos. It looks great out of the box but in practice if you catch the watch on anything it takes very little pressure to lever the pin out of the watch. In the 5 months I've owned mine I've bent 4 pins, only one of those occasion I feel it should have happened. Watch pins aren't designed to have transverse load strength in the middle of the pin so why would you design a strap for a sports watch that relies on it? I'll be putting a leather strap on mine asap and recommend the leather strap version over this one.
