I ordered this watch to help in upcoming CNA classes. Military time is great, and the band being chrome instead of leather or cloth makes it feel more sturdy. It may get scratched, but unlike leather or cloth I feel confident it won't fall apart. It is a little big for me, but not a big concern, and I can always see about taking it to a jeweler later if it bothers me. It may be perfect for other people. I love this watch and feel it will be a sturdy and helpful.
