Like the title says, I am interested in any thoughts on the build quality of the BR02 or B&R in general. I picked one up, knowing that they are a bit overpriced for the standard movement you get. Probably should have gotten it used, but couldn't find the Arabic dial.
I returned it once due to the rubber on one of the crowns being filed down. After I got the second one home, I noticed that the case is all rough between the lugs where the two parts of the case connect. This is a first semi expensive watch for me, is it wrong to assume the build quality and tolerances should be better? To be fair, it appears purely cosmetic, but if you rub your nail over the section, it is clearly rougher and sticks out from the case. It just does not appear to be finished correctly. My seiko sumo has no such cosmetic issues and was quite a bit less costly.
Thanks for your thoughts.
