I'd agree, they're not as invincible as people lead on. Still I love both of mine. My regular U1's bracelet shows a lot of wear, but its not tegimented. The bead blast finish shows more wear (IMO) versus a brushed or polish 316L case/bracelet.
My SDR actually has a strange scratch/mark across the PVD bezel. I was trying to sell it, but it seems no one wants it because of this. I dropped the price to what I consider a bargain and no takers, so I'm just going to keep it and use it as a beater.
