    New Watch Purchase watch has huge Dust particle on dial?

    I recently purchased a watch I have been lusting over for years.. It's an RXW MM20. The seller listed the watch on another website, it's preowned, but the watch was never worn ( Literally ) . Along with the watch the seller sent me the original receipt from Ken' Trading, along with the Wooden box and original straps. Before buying the watch, I asked the seller for a few close up shots of the watch and case.. The seller agreed and sent me pictures of the watch, but the hour hand ( Which is insanely thick on the RXW MM20 ) was covering the mark which is located on the dial. The mark looks like a huge piece of dandruff or something.. I've tried shaking the watch but can't seem to get the thing to move from it's position. I emailed the seller, who was always quick to respond earlier today but he is not responding to my emails suddenly.. I'm not looking for a refund, I just want the stuff off of the dial, and really wish the seller had told me in advance so I could plan on getting the mark looked at. I would post pictures of it, but I know there is a rule in affect here against showing MM Dials.

    Not sure of how to handle this situation.. Other than the mark on the dial, the watch is in stunning condition, but the flake of whatever it is is just driving me crazy.

    The best way to remove it safely, is de-casing the movement and using rodico.

    Easy fix for even a beginner watchmaker.
