This watch will last
Reviewed in the United States on December 23, 2016
This watch seems like it is going to last a long time. I really like the mineral crystal, because it is so much stronger than the acrylic and it just looks better, especially considering it doesn't scratch as easily. My last watch (Timex Ironman Triathlon) had an acrylic crystal and had all sorts of scratches, after just two months. Working in a warehouse, I need something that will stand up to daily abuse; I think this is the one.
Update 2.5 months: not a single scratch on the crystal.
5 months: Still not a scratch and other than some scuffs on the band, it still looks new. My hands don't even look that good.
1 year: This is impressive! I have yet to see a single scratch on the crystal, and the band is still in great condition. A lot more than I can say for my Ironman Triathlon watch.
Shortly after my 1-year update, this watch reset itself. It has done this 3 times; twice in 2 days' time. I'm not sure what caused it, but it was a minor annoyance having to reset the date and time.
2 years: The watch hasn't reset itself, since before I wrote the last update. And there is still no scratches on the crystal. The band has also held up well.
3.5 years: Minor scratches on the crystal, but they are so faint you have to look for them. One of the two watchband screw covers came off, but that only affected the cosmetics. The band is still holding up strong. The watch never did reset itself again.
I almost wish the band would break, so I would have an excuse to get a new G-Shock watch.
