Not so sure about this one.
The movement is one of those plastic rivet `non-serviceable` movements (failure under warranty and they will rip out the old movement and put a new one in it's place). This limits the lifespan of the watch (remember that you really should consider servicing your watches every five years or so), especially now that Swatch has locked down their spares sales (hopefully the court case will come in favour of the independent businesses but I suspect not).

So.. .the question is: How long do you want your watch to last for? I'm reckoning that for £280, it's a fair price for a watch that you intend to keep for two (warranty) to perhaps five years. However, out of warranty repair costs will probably exceed the cost of the watch.

Expect to replace the battery every two years or so and ensure that the watch is pressure tested afterwards (unless you never go near the sink with the watch on). It's worth doing this properly and should be in the region of £40, unless seals need to be replaced (double it).

All that considered, plus I rather like the look (unusual for me to like chronographs) so I'll give heat.
