I recently bought a new quartz watch, I'm not sure how long I've had it now, maybe 1 month, however I picked it up out of my drawer today to put it on for an event and noticed it was almost exactly 30 minutes slow. Now I know that I set it to the correct time upon purchasing it. I don't know what to make of this? Can this really be normal for a watch in this price range? This is the same watch that I posted about the second hand not lining up 100% on the tick marks however I was told that this is normal for a quartz in this price range, so I did not contact the manufacturer. I am a little disappointed because this is a limited edition watch that I really liked the design of. Beautiful case and lugs and just the right size for my wrist.
