I don't really hate it--I like these watches, but it is the third Casio of this type whose casing broke in the same manner. I repaired a plastic one with epoxy cement. I bought this metal one, hoping that this assures me against breakage--didn't work. I live abroad, and a return is too much of a hassle.
Nice casio classic. Nice engineering ,- 70 % metal 30 durable resin. 5-year battery life , well you can sing and laugh in the porin rain , and it wont stop ticking. not quite sure how long. but its still a gigle and a winner,with a nice price. gd admin, nic timin n engineering.
