I posted some pictures a week or so ago about how my Seastar 1000 chronograph (blue) had "smudges" that appeared when you touched the bezel although the smudges come right off if you run it under warm and soapy water. I took it back to my AD and they contacted Tissot about it.
The AD informed me that this has been a complaint that Tissot is aware of. He said Tissot has a new bezel that it will be fitted with that does not smudge when you touch it. (I'm not sure if they have new bezels for the black/blue and black/orange ones.)
So it is being sent back to Tissot and will take 2 weeks for it to get back.
I'm getting pretty fed up with the watch at the moment. You would think that the quality of a 1200.00 watch ( I paid 1146.00 - out the door) would be non-issue. I mean, Jesus, I have a Citizen Calibre 2100 Chronograph Eco-Drive (420.00) that I wear everyday and the quality of it is a non-issue when it comes to its fit and finish. In fact, my only gripe about it is that it doesnt have a sapphire crystal.
I'm thinking now that I should of just saved my money and gotten an Omega Seamaster even though they are twice the cost.
Here are pictures of the smudges......
