Amazon service, best in business. Please read below:

First, as most, I prefer spending my $ with amazon due to service. And again, they definitely do not dissapoint. Unfortunately, this watch OR this specific batch of watches did. Again, I am choosing my words wisely as I do not think all Tags, especially this model, are all defective.
My initial order:
My watch came shipped to me in excellent packaging, as you would expect from amazon. Shipped and sold. The watch looked great except the time was off 45 seconds a day. Yes, watch was wound and yes the watch was on a winder. After exhausting everything I could do to make sure there was NOT an error on my end, I sent the watch back and requested a replacement. Again, satisfied with superior service.
My replacement watch:
I was excited to see the watch. During unpackaging, I saw a reflective spec of machine shavings under the sapphire glass. I debated on keeping it. Then realized that this was unacceptable. I will provide pictures. It was reflective enough to catch my eye.
Things I've learned. When buying a watch anywhere, wind watch and use a winder if available. Set time and wait 24 hours. Make sure the threshold of the inaccurate time is +/- the seconds acceptable by the manufacturer. If satisfied, have watch resized. Amazon and AD's clearly state that if watch is resized, you will not get a refund. I'm glad I didnt wear the watch.
Anyways, I hope that whoever purchases this watch or any watch for that matter, will be satisfied.
For me, I ended up buying the watch this weekend at a Local Dealer (AD) and did get a warranty card, etc. The card wasnt a deal breaker with amazon. I spent a few bucks more, not significantly.
Based on my experience with amazon, I will give not hesitate shopping for watches here. Just this model didnt work out.
