I'm still working on beating mine up. The SKX009 was my first Seiko watch purchase late last year and I have worn it every day for 7 months. I own my own business and work with the construction trades, I also wear my watch to work every day. Iv'e knocked it around a fair bit and have no real wear to show for it, it still looks very good - glad I picked it for my work watch. I'll report back after I beat it up real good!
