Would this be grounds to return in your opinion? I'm sorry for the crap cell phone photos, it is all I have right now. Scratch extends from the "NYC" down toward the middle of the watch approximately 4mm. It is deeper than it looks in the photo, I had difficulty capturing it since I don't have a macro. It was the first thing I noticed when I took it out of the wrapper :(
edit- I realize I could probably spend 10 bucks and have a jeweler try to polish it out, but I question the quality control of this unit when something as obvious as this could pass as ok by Casio.
Zoom in under the "C" in "NYC" I could not focus any closer than this.
Note: the package was very well packed and had absolutely no damage to it. It was also in all the factory wrappings and undisturbed.
