i in advertently adjusted the date on my Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon automatic between 10pm-2am. now the date and 2nd time zone hand is busted. i have sent it in to ball for repairs. my qn is: have i majorly screwed up my watch and are they gonna charge me some stupid amt to fix it? its only 3 days old and i wonder if this sort of thing would be covered under warranty.
what happened was that my watch had stopped and i was pretty sure that it had stooped at after 12pm...but apparently it must have been 12 am cos after i adjusted the date with only 1 rotation it busted...is this normal? seems a bit too fragile if u ask me....and why isn't there some kind of mechanism that would prevent u from doing that? this is my first automatic watch and i'm pretty pissed off with myself for screwing up my first "expensive watch". i'm also kinda pissed that the warning isn't severe enough in the manual...it just says "not recommend" rather than saying "you should never under any circumstance".
sorry for the rant.
