Yeah, it's definitely not for everyone - these are surfer dude watches designed by waterpeople for waterpeople. You can read about the design direction in a forum post here:
It works for me because I want a shock-proof watch that I don't have to worry about - plus I'm lucky enough to get to Kauai a few times a year so I like stuff that reminds me of my vacations so that's why it looks special to me
If I was going to drop some big coin on a watch I wanted to worry about then it would have to be a Graham Chronofighter ... but not anytime soon
