Excerpt: Have worn it in the rain and is an all time watch, do not remove it while washing m,y hands,no worries of the water getting in it. NO scratches. Only flip side is that the clear band gets discolored to a brown tint colour soon. I think its because of sun exposure. This happens jus weeks after you use it. But it doesnt affect the quality or toughess in any way.. and some people like the brown tint too..although I like the lear look much better..
