I'm kinda bummed about this one... I bought this watch for the lady who loves gold, and it looked so good on her. The gold and the blue just popped. The problem happened after 3 or 4 times wearing the watch. After just normal wear, no abuse whatsoever, the gold plating on the band was rubbing through. It rubbed completely off. She owned the watch for a week and half and to prevent a cheap looking silver and gold watch we returned it. I love Nixon and have owned plenty but this really rubbed me wrong.
