I was never a watch wearer. I was interested in purchasing a smart watch, but I wanted to make sure that wearing a watch daily would work for me so I bought this to test it out. Three years later, no smartwatch and I've worn this around everyday. Work, housework, yard work, WEEKENDING. Because it's easy to swap watch bands out, I put a black watchband on it and wore it with a tux to a wedding. Great watch. I wouldn't be surprised if gents with multi-thousand dollar watch collections have a weekender right beside them.
Just an awesome watch all around. Classic. I love the field watch vibe, and it feels solid. It's super easy to read, durable, and I really love the indiglo light. I wear it almost every day. I shower, work, and sleep in this thing. I see so many negative comments, especially about the ticking, but I haven't been bothered at all by that. Sometimes I put my ear down to it just to hear it. Love it. Highly recommend it. Loved it so much my father now owns one and also loves it.
This watch replaced my previous nearly identical Ironman that served well for many, many years. The old one failed as the gasket was damaged replacing the battery multiple times (my fault), and also the buttons became unreliable after thousands of runs and walks. I loved having the new watch. (I do not use the light, timers or alarms much, but they work fine.)
