Why would you want that? You can drop an iPhone, but a watch with a sapphire screen and an aluminum or hardened steel casing sounds much stronger and less likely to get in trouble (not to mention scratches aren't covered).
What astonishes me is not that people have different tastes, it's the feel that the black one is much more in demand for a reason that escapes me. As for the feminine look, I find the steel link mail evokes Knight Templars to me, not female fashion, but if your wife wears it I'm sure it will look more feminine than on me ;) Also, I got the 38mm because I have a very thin wrist, even my small Fossil watch almost looks oversize, but I'm a bit afraid of the "battery is...
I am astonished at the number of people who like the metal band (and the black color). I want the shiny milanese loop on the shiny steel watch.
Please tell me I did not get fast delivery time because I'm alone with bad taste ;)
