I have an SNZF21 which aesthetics aside is very, very similar.

As said the polished parts of the bracelet will start to collect smudges but it's easy to clean. Mine very rarely comes off my wrist and I'm a little absent minded so tend to bang it about a bit, the bracelet still looks new.

The bracelet overall is very nice having solid links it feels a lot better and is less noisy than cheaper offerings.

Lume is great, nowhere near as good as a diver but it starts out nice and bright and although it does fade a little quickly it's at least readable for most of the night.

Overall I'm very happy with mine, the only thing I don't like is the clasp which is a little bit nasty and can be a tad noisy.

I would take a look at the Seiko divers though such as the SKX series, I find myself at times wishing I had got one instead and the price difference is nothing (in fact, I'm about to pull the trigger on an Orange Monster for less than I paid for my 5 :D)

As for the SNZF size, I find it a little hard to believe that the case measurements on some sites are correct, it doesn't seem much bigger than my 39/40mm Timex beater, I'll measure it later.

Cheers :-!

EDIT: Ignore that, the case dimensions are correct, it wears a lot smaller however.

I expect the lume will last about 3-4hours.

er, the black coating will wear away? that's makes me worried.
is all black coating watch usually will wear off?

can the lume last for at least 3-4hours?

I wish my wrist is bigger, I really love the snzf53 and the orange monster. o|
I think what he's saying is it could potentially be rubbed away on areas that are going to be subject to friction, ie the clasp resting/rubbing on a desk day in, day out, etc.

I've had mine for going on two months now which isn't a lot but as I said I do tend to bash my watch around a lot and it's had a few decent scrapes and there's not a mark on it so I'm not too worried about the durability of the black coating.

It depends what you mean by lasts, it dims a lot within the first couple of hours but I've found it readable (if a little dim) for most of the night, I've woken up and looked at my watch at 4am or so a few times and although it's taken a second, it's still pretty readable.

Hope this helps.
