I've had this watch in black for six years. The construction is amazing, the band is incredibly comfortable and has lasted the entire time. I've only had to replace the battery twice, and the construction of the watch itself is rock solid. I've put this watch through hell - whether camping, hiking, torrential downpour, concert, etc... and its always up to the challenge. I would absolutely recommend this watch to everyone and will probably only ever own Nixon watches. Total props.
