SU­UNTO ELEMENTUM TERRA WATCH £495

I’ve had lots of watches over the years, some of which have sucked mas­sively. Be­fore this one I had a touch­screen Tis­sot, which looked amaz­ing but spent most of its life get­ting fixed. How­ever for the last five years or so I’ve been ad­dicted to my Su­unto. Mine was given to me by a pal who swore by it, and I have to say he was spot on. It looks great and re­ally works. I’ve never had to change the bat­tery, the al­time­ter is freak­ishly ac­cu­rate, and I love the look and feel of it. I even ac­ci­den­tally left it on for a free­d­iv­ing ses­sion, go­ing down pretty deep, and it was fine. It can only re­ally be worn on the right hand, but that doesn't bother me. When I do fi­nally man­age to break it (which in­evitably I do with ev­ery­thing!) I will be straight online to buy an­other iden­ti­cal one.
