The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.
Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.
Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.
Rated3out of5bythejimbotfromGood looking watch that didn't lastI bought the Bertucci because I wanted a sturdy watch that I could wear daily to work, and also camping, skiing, etc. I didn't want a wrist computer, just a simple timepiece that would hold up to the elements. The watch was perfect for the first year that I had it. I looks equally as nice whether you're wearing a dress shirt or polar fleece jacket.
After a round of golf in a torrential downpour, condensation started to collect on the inside of the glass. This was bizarre because I never submerged the watch while, swimming, snorkeling, etc., but now I had this haze inside the glass that lasted for weeks. The winding pin was always screwed all the way but I suspect that the gasket on the screw probably lost it's effectiveness over the year.
Then one day it stopped completely. At first I thought it was just the battery but when I picked it up, the parts inside the watch were rattling around. I don't recall dropping the watch, but even if I did, I would expect and outdoors "field watch" to be a little more durable.
I returned it to the REI store where I bought it and they gave me back the purchase price in store credit. Thanks REI.
Overall good looking watch that keeps good time, but not as durable as a field watch should be.

Rated1out of5byatadamsfromReally disappointed, didn't last a year.I bought this watch for my husband as a gift less than 9 months ago. He was looking for a casual but classy-looking watch that he could wear with either hospital scrubs or a dress shirt and slacks, and this fit the bill style and function wise. The watch is advertised as "rugged enough to use outdoors," but if his tame, indoor use of it is anything to go by, this would fall apart just looking at a icy mountain stream or jagged cliff face. Others have noted that the black paint on some of the strap's metal parts scratches/wears off easily, and I can confirm that. Alone, that's something I could get over. But after about 6 months of frequent use, the metal grommets that line the holes in the watchband started to fall out! Cheap! About a week ago, husband wore it into the water for the first time since having it (a shallow pool - not talking deep-sea diving, here), and there's now water condensation on the inside of the watch-face. So much for being "rugged." Honestly, I wish I had purchased the $30 Timex that looked similar; I just wanted to get him something quality that would last, and figured that a more expensive watch would guarantee that. Clearly, mistake no. 1. I'm going to try to take this back to the REI store where I bought it for a refund (they have a 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed policy), and I'll update with my results.

Rated1out of5byjlh7778fromWaste of money and time.I purchased this watch due to the seemingly sturdy construction. I wanted a watch that I didn;t have to take off to exercise, while I was working, climbing etc. The band and the case will hold up to what ever you throw at it but after a year of trying to get this thing to work for me I have given in and distroyed it. The pin? that you pull out to change the time and or date will come out of the watch if you are not really, really careful and sometimes still does. It is NOT reliable, period. I have missed appts, ran late, it is worthless.

Rated1out of5byBrad-in-OzfromGood looks, poorly madeMy wife bought this watch, but didn't wear it too much. I started using it and the second hand fell off. It still worked for a couple weeks, but then the second hand jammed between the other hands so the watch is dead. I liked the weight and the strap, but seems like the mechanics are poorly made.

Rated4out of5byBeerprnfromGreat watchI work as a firefighter so watches get destroyed regularly with me. I got this a year ago and it is awesome. Light, durable, great retention on illumination, scratch resistant. The only con is that the strap end is sewn over into a point. The end would always stick out and get in the way. I put up with this for about six months then one day I cut it off and heat sealed the nylon strap. I would recommend this alteration when you take it out of the box. If you like heavy bulky big watches (G-Shock) then don't buy, but if u like a normal size watch that is incredibly light and durable get this one.
