Bought it as a High School graduation gift to myself. Been wearing it every day of my life for 8 almost 9 years now. Still has absolutely 0 scratches on the sapphire crystal face (would take a diamond drill bit to scratch it), but at around 1600.00 bucks a pop, it isn't for the faint at heart. This watch has been beat to hell and back and has been absolutely flawless. As my grandmother taught me growing up, buy the best and you'll never be disappointed. That's why I'm also a S&W customer.
A long time ago I bought an expensive Omega Chronometer, beautiful watch, but the worst I ever had for keeping time, it would gain about 5 minutes a week, it was supposedly "regulated" several times, they never could get that thing to keep accurate time. I finally got rid of it and got a Seiko, I've had real good luck with Seiko's.
I actually stopped wearing watches on my wrist, simply because I was tearing them up. That and my sweat makes rubber bands brittle and leather and canvas stink, even after washing. I wear a timex Ironman on my belt now. Looks odd, but I don't care. I'm not replacing bands every six months or so. I really feel bad for people who have that bio-electric field about them that kills watch batteries. They're always late.
Retired three years ago and do not wear a watch much. I really don't care what time it is most of the time. I wear a Seiko when I do. Don't really know how accurate it is but I set it when the time changes back and forth between EST and DST.

I retired early due to health reasons. I just got sick of the damn place.
