    New watch pet peeves

    If I'm buying a new quartz watch, I cannot stand it if the second hand does not line up properly with the tic marks on the chapter ring. Does that bug anyone else?

    What are your new watch pet peeves that you look for before handing over your cash (or credit card) for a new watch?

    No matter where I buy a "brand new" watch, I reasonably expect perfection. The brand, type and cost is irrelevant.

    I hate when the dial doesn't look perfect with 1500X magnification.

    Having to wait for it to be delivered. When I press the “buy” button I want it to appear on the seat next to me not set off on a journey half way round the world.

    Yeah thatís annoying when the second hand doesnít line up. Happens with some of the old quartz Omega ATs. Worst part is when itís off by different amounts as it makes itís way around the dial. Then you wonder if itís the marks that are off or the movement or both.

    Oh yeah that's maddening. Once I bought a "new" watch and there was a micro hair line scratch on the clasp. It was easily visible under a loupe, I didn't even need my microscope. I have a massive sense of self importance so how could I possibly live with myself knowing that I had been treated with such disrespect.

    Also, I get bummed if the bezel doesn't line up. It happens on everything from Invicta to Rolex subs. It's inexcusable, especially on anything costing more than $200.

    I hate it when pulling a crown out or, even worse, in - the minute hands moves (looking at you Ronda).
