    Help with broken swatch (i think) pics included

    So my brother bought a swatch irony retrograde blue signs from Amazon. He knew it wasn't an AD but the 2 year warranty reassured him. Anyway it arrived yesterday and he took it to an official swatch shop to get it resized today. The women in the jeweller used a hammer to knock out the pins, i know that's normal anyway when he got it home today he noticed the hands on the chronograph dont align correctly so it starts ahead of the normal starting position and as it still counts 30 seconds it finishes past the normal finishing position.


    Any fix for this i know i can adjust the hands on my casio, but not sure for a swatch. Could it have been caused by the jeweller? Or will i just have to email Amazon?

    Regards

    We were all noobs once...

    It is probable the vibration of tapping out the pins caused the shift in the hands.... happens all the time which is why it is so easy to correct (on ETA quartz movements, at least).

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I had that same moment of panic with one of my retrogrades. The self-calibration feature is fantastic on those movements.
