So my watch that my wife got me as a get well soon from surgery gift, arrived today! bought it from Sunknots on Rakuten.
Post man rings the door bell, I run to go open it, I sign for it.. and I was like
This is what the packaging looked like:
Inside there was 3 very tiny pieces of bubble wrap that was meant to protect the watch box..
The watch outside box.. was smashed to bits:
This would have been my 1st Japan packaging.. also torn and smashed up:
what a freakin mess!!
The watch pillow was fine..
lucky for me, the watch inside was fine!! man, i nearly had a heart attack when i opened it up.. the strap was a little bent out of shape but I think if i keep wearing it, it should straighten out on its own? I checked all the buttons, the back light... everything seems fine, no scratches or anything..
Not sure what could have caused damage like that.. maybe they kept some heavy boxes on top of it or just threw it around or opened it up and tore the box up for fun? lol i have no idea.. I am just lucky that the watch is okay..
Maybe I wasn't charged customs cause it was smashed up or maybe cause it was not a big box they let it slide..
I was happy I dodged customs and I love the watch, but just not happy with how Sunknots packages their orders. It's just not good enough.. what if it was that G-Set box or something super expensive like that? not cool!
I do not want to write to them and complain, cause i doubt they will change how they package their orders, plus I think with their limited english I might confuse them and they might ship a replacement out or something.. so I'm not going to say anything.. will never order from them again though.. they have not even replied to my past 2 e-mails..
Here is the box I got from TIP-TOP *when i ordered the DGK 8900* solid packaging!
and shipping was cheaper as well! TIP Top had charged me 1240Yen and Sunknots charged me 1680Yen.. so will stick to TIP TOP from now on, their manager was also friendlier and replied to e-mails.
If anyone from India is interested in what Tracking looks like:
My last order from TIP TOP: (Rs 1700 customs)
Current order from SUNKNOTS: (No Customs)
Watch+ Shipping cost me: ( ¥12,562) (Bank charged me Rs8,342) (G8900 Normally sells for Rs6,000 here but this model is not available in India)
anyways, now on to the good stuff, the watch!
I don't have a G1 Devastator in my toy collection, so I posed the watch with Funko POP Vinyl Donnie..
my 2 favourite colours Green and Purple both in 1 watch= EPIC!
tried to get a backlight shot but it did not come out 2 good, i had my wife press the button while I took the pic, lol
Am very happy with the watch, love the colours.. in my opinion it's the best release this year. This is my 4th watch this year but it's the 1st 2013 model I have bought.. I'm tempted to get the blue & pink one now..
@CCCP Hope your Devastator reaches you soon bro!
