    If you look at my earlier post (3 post away), the dot at bezel 60 is not aligned too. The bezel turns easily. Sometimes the bezel turns 10 to 15 degrees without me noticing it.

    And to get even with their lousy after sales service, lets post these comments in every forum we join to warn others or let tag know how dissatisfied we are.

    Wouldnt it be easier to go over the watch completely BEFORE the sale to makes sure everything is up to your standards? if its such a blatant quality problem, Im sure someone with a keen eye like yours would surely notice immediately.

    Initially, i have trust and confidence with tag. Maybe because of its advertising. I took the watch because of my perceived reputation on a swiss watch.

    But i was dissatisfied buyer and i want to spread the word so others will not be prey to advertising.

    Maybe tag has indeed a good reputation. But that was before perhaps. Or they were simply hit by financial crisis lately.

    what do you mean?
    are you saying that the bezel is loose and moves?

    Add this to your earlier comment

    and it does indeed sound like there is something up with the bezel click spring.


    I have to ask if you bought whatever the shop had on display or did you order a watch in?
    It wouldn't surprise me if there was some damage done by a previous handler of the watch
    i.e they turned it the other way


    In any case, it isn't a big issue as the spring is just a cheap bit of stamped metal with a couple of teeth in it.
    Unless it's broken in some way, any half decent watch-maker can take the bezel off and "adjust" the teeth on the spring to fix it.

    For the record, my costs twice as much Planet Ocean suffered from the same fault/s from factory (I pretty much ordered one when it was in its final production run) and I fixed it myself.

    Could you describe how you fixed your bezel? I posted about this same problem a month ago. My WAK bezel turns easily, though there is no play once it clicks in place.

    You have to remove the bezel.
    Once that is off, you will see and be able to remove the flat bezel "spring" and adjust the teeth as necessary.
    The likely cause is that the teeth are too "flat" and need to be pulled up slightly.

    On my PO, the bezel had a little vertical play and it too turned too easily and adjusting the teeth as above fixed it.
