While not the explicit purpose of the thread, you can still form a well grounded opinion on a watch after a few minutes. I'm assuming you agree...or do you forgo trying on watches before you buy them?

Or, is your qualm that we are not answering the thread's specifically stated question verbatim, which you somehow see as an affront to the sanctity of thread etiquette?

This is not to say the 5711 feels cheap, far from it. It's just that the perceived quality/feel and finishing doesn't stack up to the 15202, which is one of its main competitors.
