It's lightweight added to it's good quality NATO type band, make this watch very wearable. The dial is very readable and the Indiglo is great in low or no light. It keeps good time, the plastic crystal seems durable enough and I have had no issues with the unprotected crown, even though some suggest it might be a problem. The finish on the aluminum case is good looking and seems very durable. A really good everyday kick around watch and for the price, you can't go wrong.
