this watch is AMAZING! i never wore a watch for longer than a couple weeks until i bought the vega. the back says "love the hotness" & i totally do! i have gotten tons of compliments on it. i wore it EVERY day for over a year, & eventually the elastic cord broke from wear & tear... sad; yes, but i sent it to nixon & within 2 weeks they had sent me a brand new watch at no cost!!! great customer service & they stand behind their product. i would definitely recommend a nixon to anyone!
