At first glance this watch seems amazing due to it's large and easily readable face, sleek design, and VERY simple AND durable features. One HUGE issue for me-seeing that this was "tested" with special operations-I was really disappointed by the fencing around the buttons and the screen. I wear my watch on my right wrist, facing downward-I don't think they put into consideration for us lefties. My watch face constantly changes and is all scratched when all I want to do is check time-it's either in alarm mode or countdown. I'm a 3rd year wildland firefighter attached to an engine-you would think my job is easy apparently this watch can't handle the "easy" job I have. Looks like I've had it for 2 years-laminate is pealing, metal is worn, is screen is scratched-I've only been on 16 fires and passed 100mi of walking distance with it. Screen is scuffed up due to barely if any fencing around to protect it, unlike G-Shocks which works wonders! I really want to love this watch but if Nixon doesn't fix this I don't think I'll get another Regulus and just still with G-Shocks. Also, I'm a cert. scuba-diver but have yet to put it through it's paces through the water. My only nag is that buttons and screen needs to be fenced off more-quite a design flaw in my opinion.
