First off, you can't go wrong with NIXON. Secondly, despite what the manufacturer's warranty says in the "Tech Specs" this watch has a limited lifetime warranty. I have the white and black ceramic players. The white ceramic turns more heads. This watch DOES NOT SCRATCH and ALWAYS keeps it's shine. However, the watch can crack. Make sure you read the precautions on what temperatures you can wear it in. Also, be weary of over-winding. If you care about your Ceramic Player like I do, It will last a lifetime and still look as good as the day you bought it!
