    Hmm rust spots on new watch after 2 days....

    So I got my kadloo ocean millennium in the mail Friday night, set it and have been wearing it since.

    I kept the plastic on the case back and wore it while sweating etc...

    Anyhow I guess some sweat got trapped under the plastic and corroded 2 little spots on the caseback.

    Can stainless steel really rust that quickly if sweat is trapped against it for a day or two?

    That seems awfully quick...did the rust wipe off right away? Do you have any pictures?

    The rust wiped off easily but it left a dark grey/black spot that won't come off, you can see it in the pic below right near the cutout on the caseback.

    Couple other members have this watch and I haven't seen any complaints so I'm guessing it was some water/sweat that got under the plastic.

    can you try to remove with a scotch-brite pad?? maybe it's the glue and rust and sweat mix....

    on an unrelated topic, i bought an ocean class and as soon as i "unboxed" it, i noticed the rotor was completely lose and the little screw was rattling around in the case... not good, 0 for 2.

    Well I know nothing about this watch so I googled it. I did so on the rationale that if it was a $50 piece I wouldn't reply and muse to myself that sometimes you get what you pay for.

    However your watch has a MSRP of $895 from what I can see so this is completely unacceptable. I wouldn't tell the story you have on here. I would just take it back and ask for a replacement.

    Not specifically you, I know there are a few others out there. This is really the only issue I have had with the watch. I can live with a black spot but not if its going to rust all the time lol. Ill check it over the next day or 2 and if nothing ill consider it fine.
