I don't have any of the Abyss watches but would love one. That being said, aren't "mistakes" worth more on the resale market as the supply runs out? I've seen toys sell for hundreds if not thousands more than their retail cost of a few dollars because of the mistakes like a color swap.
Pretty sure we're mostly desk divers anyway, and if you're not, the Abyss collection is definitely not the right tool watch because of the low-powered lume. Yes, there's the argument of I paid for x but received y, but it's not ISO certified so I don't think the price differs greatly, if at all, between the 30 and 60 ATM is there? Unlike COSC certification, is anyone really going to test the ATM rating? My point is if a watch is advertised as 60 ATM but in actuality is only 30 ATM, I doubt anyone would have found out, especially not the Abyss collection. That's not to say it's good biz practice and I think we're in agreement it was an honest mistake (?) on CW's side. I've only recently gotten into watches but so far I've read mostly good things about CW. The only major issues were the 9 o'clock logo change (I'm not a fan either) and that they always have sales and never to buy when there wasn't a sale. Lol Point being, I don't think CW was out to intentionally deceive. Who knows, maybe they were originally aiming for 60 ATM but couldn't get it up to that and settled for 30 ATM. Dials were already ordered and someone forgot to double-check? Whoever missed it should be taken out back, drawn, and quartered... lol jk
