I really like this watch. It has a classy yet understated look and works well as a smart casual watch. I really really like this watch. I've had it four months and it's been great. The face is pretty scratch resistant, the bracelet and clasp haven't failed, the metal still looks good, it's still looking pretty much new after constant use.
I have to agree with Baris' earlier review. It is NOT water proof. It is rated at 50m, which effectively means resistant to regular total immersion in water at surface level (Surface swimming, Boating, Fishing etc), and for the past four months - until today - it hasn't leaked. It's been worn in brief rain showers, while washing my hands frequently, it even went into a pool once very briefly to help haul a panicking kid out. Today however I needed to use it working out side, as I'd lost my work watch. A few hours in the rain and it's got water in the face. I can't see that the back has come loose at all, and I've lost my faith in it's 'waterproofness'. I'm not sure whether to try and dry it out by leaving it next to the radiator for a while, to take it to a watchsmith to have it cleaned and serviced, or to send it back.
And about the metal. It is titanium plated copper, and fairly thin plating at that. I don't think it'll wear well in the long run.
So yes, I really really like this watch - but I am disappointed.
