I have had this watch for a couple months now. It has held up flawlessly through my wear of it everyday. NO paint scratches whatsoever, in fact it had a one on one incident with my car door. No lie the cannon left a small scratch on the paint, one of those times when you get pissed and happy. This watch may look classy and casual but is as tough as a viking. Not to mention I have gotten numerous complements on it, males and females. Sleek simple and classy.
Only downfall for me is since i got the all black color, after hours when the sun has gone down i have to reflect some sort of light off the face to see the time, otherwise best watch for the money you can get.
Props to the guys here at dogfunk and the nixon rep Jake Hobbs for quick response to help me with choosing color and shipped super fast.
