I bought this for my husband almost 10 years ago. He's replaced the battery once that I know of but I'm sure it was more. The clasp just broke last month. I still can't believe how durable this watch was. He also works in agriculture and with his hands everyday while wearing the watch.
Just picked one up at the store. I chose this watch because doesn't look like something out of a sci fi movie nor is it the size of a dinner plate. It is a simple design, time and date, and it fit my over-sized wrist. I liked the way the band locked and the weight of the watch, which is substantial. I also liked the idea that the battery will outlive all my previous watches combined.
