Have had my Runabout for a week or so, now. Really enjoying the look and feel of the watch and the moonphase is fantastic!

I got a really great deal on this from Amazon.com. I don't normally buy online, but the price was too hard to pass up. The watch came fully packaged in a shoebox sized FC box which held the actual watch and display case. The watch was wrapped with clear plastic to prevent scratches and damage. The only issues I had were that the metal FC commemorative plate was knocked off its' mooring (possibly from the UPS shipping process), there was no "push" tool or manual included. Due to the complexity and complication of this particular watch, some guidance was necessary to understand the fit and function. Thanks to a great rep at FC and the knowledgeable people on the forum, I got my watch properly set for day/date, etc.
A dab of Crazy Glue affixed the plate in the proper place and emails to Amazon will hopefully produce a printed manual. The FC rep gave me a pdf file with the manual, so all is well. The display case and boat were in excellent condition and the watch runs great, so I have no complaints so far. Amazon undersold Jomashop (where I have purchased a Tissot Le Locle) watch and I would consider buying from both in the future to contain costs.

My only FC is a Junior. If only they made some other models in the 38mm range with this kind of sporty look and fantastic bracelet.
Shut your mouth and wear your *Alpinist.
*"Your Alpinist" is metaphorical and in truth refers to your most versatile watch.
