That's a well-worn watch. I'm pretty sure none of my watches would go that route because I don't wear any of them enough. I suppose the most likely to go that way would be the SKZ267 with its plastic sides. We'll see in a few years.


I'm surprised Seiko uses plastic parts for these "guard" pieces. It seems that they could have just as easily used metal parts.

My Casios are all plastic, so I guess the whole case will deteriorate at some point.


This is why I always avoid watches that have this "sporty" combination of materials. Plastic is susceptible to damage from skin oils and ultraviolet radiation, but I suppose they use it over metal because it's just much cheaper. Same thing with bracelets that use a few plastic links; they almost always break. Swatch are particularly prone to that.
