OK, I just got the watch today, so I can't speak to durability. But there are some things to consider if you're thinking about this watch.
First, the Amazon description shows the watch as being water resistant to 99 feet. The actual information packaged with the watch, is clear that the watch is merely water resistant to 3 atmospheres, which permits minor exposure such as you'd encounter in the rain or when washing face or hands. It is definitely NOT for use while swimming, showering, etc. I'd like to see this corrected in the description.
Second, in other reviews of other Citizen watches, I've read about people adjusting the bracelet and being unable to keep the pins in place. This is how it works:
1. I definitely recommend purchasing one of the bracelet adjustment tools listed on Amazon. For $6 I got a "heavy duty" one that, while definitely not heavy duty, was adequate to the task of adjusting my bracelet.
2. Pay attention to the little arrows on the inside of the bracelet when you push the pins out with the tool. You'll push the pins about 1/4 inch out, then pull them the rest of the way with a pair of pliers. I used my Leatherman tool quite successfully for this.
3. When you pull out the pins, be on the lookout for tiny little metal "sleeves" less than 1/4 inch long that will fall out of the links. These are important. You may want to spread a white cloth or some paper, and work over that surface so you can find anything that falls out. Cloth may be best because it will discourage bouncing (which will have you on the floor with a flashlight while your coworkers wonder what you're doing under your desk).
4. When re-assembling the bracelet, hold the little sleeve thingie with your needle-nose pliers and slip it into one of the holes on the "2-prong" side of the link. It will slip easily into one, and won't go into the other at all.
5. Slip the sleeve into the prong that will accept it, keep the link upright so the sleeve doesn't fall out, line up the links, and slip the pin into the link. It will go a short way in, then you'll need to tap it gently (I used the pliers hinge on my Leatherman). I tapped it in a little ways, then, when I got nervous about marring the link if I got too close, I turned it over and pressed the pin in the rest of the way by pushing it down on my desk.
6. Finally, when the pin was flush, I used the bracelet adjustment tool again to push the pin in just a little further so it is the same depth as the other pins.
7. Now the pins won't fall out, and your watch won't fall onto the sidewalk or into a puddle of water where it will demonstrate just how water resistant it really is.
I'll update my review if it turns out I don't like the watch after all. I'm taking away one star because Amazon got the description wrong, even though the Citizenwatch website got it right.
