on a Crown & Buckle Chevron Fifty
If I keep it that will be the route I go. Right now it gets the gentle baby like treatment, LOL.
Look remarkably good on the mesh. Maybe better than the Strapcode offering. HmmmmAs said by others before, the 147 needs a strong sun to bring out the best of that coppertone sunburst dial. But once it does, its revelling.

While I'm more aware of my surroundings while wearing it (avoiding door locks), besides the microfiber cloth to avoid scratching the clasp with my macbook, I've wore it to the swimming pool, to work and the other day when I had to climb up a ladder to remove an old bird nest.
I'm not super careful with mine so it'll get beat up eventually but it's also in a rotation with other watches so I'm not wearing it every day.
Mine is on order and should be arriving next week. Assuming I like/keep it, it will be my daily. I don't baby my watches at all, so my daily could definitely be considered a beater.
It's pretty much my daily as I don't like any of my other watches as much. The Diashield has surprisingly held up quite well for me. Not sure I'd call it a beater, but I'm definitely wearing it nearly 24/7.
I don't plan on babying mine, though I will likely take it off when working with tools. But not when hiking, camping, etc. So... a half beater.
I'm thinking of doing the same. What did Canada customs ding you on duty?Just received a SPB145J1 from Hong Kong to Canada in 2 days. I really love the dial color and cream indices.

I just got the 143 few weeks ago. Love it. Perfect size. I've been babying it a bit, but it is my daily wear. I think eventually it will be a beater status, but for now, I'll wear my g-shock if I'm doing anything that could scratch up the watch.
I got dinged only 21$ as the seller put a low value as courtesy.I'm thinking of doing the same. What did Canada customs ding you on duty?
That gray Chevron always = the business with the 143[/ATTACH type="full" width="644px" alt="15801416"]15801416[/ATTACH]
