The watch is advertised as a diver .. OK, it's got the water resistance of a diver. Does it have the desired durability? Some on this discussion have said "no". I happen to like the size and look of it (Does that make me warped? .. Probably.) .. And to add to the controversy, I ordered the gold one! .. Please, don't everyone throw tomatoes at me all at once! .. Anyway, I have always believed that if you like something that happens to cut against the grain, follow your own instincts because at the end of the day, you only have to answer to yourself. The worst that can happen is I'm out 72 bucks on a beater.
