I destroyed 24 watches before buying my TAG in 1995. I never take it off. I wear it during sports, the gym, the shower, to sleep, skiing, boating, scube diving, etc. and it's in perfect shape. No scratches on the face, bracelet, etc. and it has never broken. I love it. I can't recommend them strongly enough.

I have Rolex GMT Master, it is all stainless with black face and bezel. I have abused the crap out of it and it has held up, although it did get a little moisture in it when we went to Hawaii this past winter. I sent it back to Rolex and they took care of it.

I must be the only one who killed the Tag...Had it fixed, but since have purchased a Seiko Dive watch $350. and it has become my all around watch and very happy with it.

Thumbs up TAG ALL THE WAY!

I have had my Tag for four years now and it still looks great and keeps time like a champ... Water, sun, sand, snow.... whatever you put it through I guarantee it will hold up. I am still surprised I have not cracked the face on it... I am always banging my wrist on things...

Wait a minute! Why do you folks need a watch on the water anyhow? I just go by island time for the most part. Only time I need to know is time for more gas.

I've had a Wenger Swiss Army watch with a white face and SS case and band literally on my wrist for 8 years straight, in the shower, swimming, wrenching, etc. Probably costs around $150 or less. It has stayed waterproof the entire time. Looks like this

Two words..Armitron and K-Mart. $19.95 lasts a few years and toss it away. You loose it big deal. Waterproof to 165ft.
