I have now figured out pretty reliable methods for resizing pin and collar and double screw bracelets. Would anyone want a post where I detail my process, or is everyone all set?

I would be very interested. I struggle with PnC, and I had to get a jeweller to undo my double screws.

Request a returns pack and see if they’ll get the speck of dust out.

If not, I’ll get a refund.

Thanks for your input/suggestion 👍
Returns pack on it’s way, email received from Tabitha.

Pretty good response time during a sale :clap:

Received my blue tide strap last week. Bought for the upcoming Atoll but messed around a little and put it on my GS just to check it out. Nice strap and I don't hate it on this watch even though the colors may not work out too good.

I'd be interested in this - think I could do with adding a half link into my C63s bracelet, but I've never tackled a pin and collar setup before (sure it's pretty straightforward, but no harm in a bit of revision first!)

C60 MK3 Trident Ombré COSC LE # 136/300 checking in.

MK2 White COSC LE and MK3 Atoll SE on hand to welcome another C60 LE into the family 😉

The dial is the real star of the show here. What a beautiful, vibrant dial, even in this black/gray/brownish hue depending on lighting. Really beautiful.

The ombré dials usually don’t wet my whistle, but it looks pretty good in your pics! And the family photo is great. Enjoy the new watch.

Ok, I’ll knock a post out when I get a minute this week

Speck of dust being covered under warranty and PRIORITY repair.

Timescale from now 4-6 weeks. Priority repair, are they having a laugh.

Opinions?

I’m debating if I should keep, return, or send back for repair?

I’d live with this misalignment of the bezel if the time keeping was superb, alas, it is losing 5 seconds over the last 12 hours and it’s COSC. I’ll check it again tonight.

Regulation would be 8 weeks for the movement which sucks when I’ve had the watch for less than a day… if I return for refund, I obviously won’t be able to get the same model to replace it. Would they even align the bezel?

What say you?
