This watch looks far more expensive than it is. Only the band lacks a look and feel of quality, and for $12, I put a great black rubber dive watch band on it. The luminous dial is pretty dim, but it remains readable in total darkness all night long. The watch is water resistant to 100 meters, but is not recommended for SCUBA use. However, that degree of water tightness assures that it will remain problem free for swimming, showering, watersports, fishing, boating, etc. The day/date feature is usually found only on higher price watches. I highly recommend this watch for casual, everyday use. It keeps time accurately, looks great, and it is not so expensive that you have to worry about it getting damaged or lost. And as an added bonus for those of us with old eyes, the numerals are big, bold, and easy to read at a quick glance.
