    Am I being too picky??

    I recently bought this Gorgeous Ball Engineer Master II diver that was rated at "95%" scale and it just arrived this afternoon. I love the watch and it is the model i wanted, I am having a hard time seeing 95% out of this watch considering it has dings on it. It runs great and has 100% functionality but the dings make me question the grading.

    Being new to the E-watch world I am wondering if i am just being too critical?

    i will attach a couple of pictures, in the first i circled the most significant dings; which can also be viewed from the top angle or the second picture if viewed closely enough.
    Your opinion please, and sorry in advance if i parked this thread in the wrong location.

    Thanks!

    IMHO you are. The watch was worn by another person before you. Those scratches are tiny. If the crystal is clear(as it appears) I would easily rate it at 95%, or maybe a bit more.

    Looks pretty good. If the dings weren't there it would look more like 100% (though being pre-owned, it can't really ever be 100%). 95% is fair.

    Thank you very much for the input!
    as i said i am new to all of this;
    not a big deal but I have a critical eye at times, so i am trying to gauge and or set a baseline of what to expect from the used grading scale for future reference.
    cheers!

    Put some scratches on it and you will not see the dings!
