Looking back through photos, I realized that yesterday marked the one year anniversary of me and my Full Metal Square. This watch has been a huge part of my limited rotation in the last year, a wonderful piece that I feel can go anywhere with me. Itís been my primary travel watch, and Iíve done a good bit of traveling this last year. It works in pretty much any situation I might find myself in, always looks fantastic, and I find it very fun to discuss with anyone interested (doesnít happen much :) )
I bought the B5000 to be my ďgrab-and-goĒ Quartz, as well as an easy to wear bracelet watch. It has had about 30% wrist time over the last year, which is second place to my SBDX017 MM300, but weíll ahead of my other few watches. Owning it has made me really question my GW-5000, and a really great Froggy (GWF-D1000) was sold.
The only thing Iíve second guessed was whether to keep the steel or the gold IP version. I had both, and decided the steel would get more wear. Itís gotten a lot of wear, for sure, but I sometimes find myself longing for the gold version.
Anyway, some photos from the last year. This watch has absolutely been $500 well spent. I adore it, and look forward to many more fine years together.
