    I'm expecting my Space Gray 42mm watch tomorrow. I can't wait!

    After seeing some pictures of the sport watch it looks "cheap" in some pictures. How is it after a few days use? I tried them on a few weeks back in the store. It seemed ok... Just wonder what people think of theirs.

    I think it's fantastic. feels high quality. Looks good on the wrist. The finish on the watch is very nice. Does not feel cheap in the least.

    You are going to love it!

    They are much better in real life then in pictures, hard to explain.

    I have the White Sport and do not think it looks cheap at all, I love it.

    I was happy to order the Sport from the promo images, though some of the try-on photos made me wish I had opted for the SS version. All worries were banished when I actually got my hands on the Sport; IMO, it looks excellent in real life.

    The band doesn't feel like any kind of rubber/plastic I've ever encountered before, and there is nothing plasticky or cheap looking about the case, either.

    The build quality on mine seems to be super, but obviously I can't speak for everyone-- I have seen some photos where the crown gap seems over large, but I don't know whether that's the angle of the shot or just a shoddy item, since mine seems snug and well-made.

    Hope your Watch was worth waiting for!

    My very first impression after opening the box (42mm Sport Space Gray) was that it was kind of cheap but I think that was more because of how light it was. Since I had not seen any of the models before in person, I didn't know what to expect.

    After spending a few days with it, I absolutely love the watch. Definitely not cheap. You can see and feel the quality with everything about it.

    My BSB is on the truck to be delivered today. I am working, so I have to wait until I get home to use it. :(

    2 hours and 38 minutes.

    Wife is home to sign for it.
