ALERT !! Don't get it wet !!
on April 28, 2013
For the 6 months that I owned it, I would proudly wear it on non working/ dress up occasions... and it worked perfectly. Yet, predominantly it sat quietly in the padded box that it came in. Then just last week while I was attending an out of town company sponsered event, I gently made a shallow dive into a 4 foot deep resort pool. After several hours of frequent dips into the pool, I happened to glance to my watch too check the time. To my dismay, I noticed water beads contained under the crystal. So for the next day or so, the watch continued to keep time even with the obvious water condensation present. After 2 o3 days I noticed my hefty watch had stopped moving. After returning home, I went online to the NAUTICA web site, only to learn that the limited 5 year warranty doesn't cover water condensation damage! WTF? The more I read about the coverage of the now skimpy 5 yr Limited Warranty, the more disgusted I became. Currently, it appears that I can only send the watch off to their repair facility in CT? My final rating of this seemingly rugged mariner's watch will have to await the outcome of it's repair.
