Hi Guys. Just wondering if there are known problems with the First Edition Militare Chrono?
I just bought a left over new First Edition from Proworth. The watched showed up on my doorstep 2 days later and is beautiful! Brand new with tags, paperwork, etc., but the chronograph doesn't function properly.... I understand how the lower left button starts and stops the chrono, and the upper left resets the chrono, but when I push the lower left button, the large second hand NEVER moves. And now the weirdest part of the story.... The lower left button starts and stops the entire watch! When I say that, I mean, the lower left button stops and starts the small second hand dial at the 9 0'clock position, but, not only does it start and stop that dial, it starts and stop the main watch! What in the world? Has anyone seen this before?
Proworth has been very apologetic and has told me they will replace the watch, but I'm thinking I should stay away from the "First Edition" Militare Chrono...?
