    Why not? I wear my Speedy all the time in the gym and time my time between sets. Lifting weights is not a contact sports. And you are very unlikely to drop a weight on your wrist with your watch on it. At least I have not done so in 30 odd years in the gym. And if so i would be more worried about a fracture of my wrist than the broken watch

    Re: Beware the JOMA

    to the OP: I would be well ticked off too. But as you say you took the tags off so JOMA don't have to take it back. On the flip side: would you have bought this watch over a new one at retail with the scratch for the discount? I would-of course in a situation where you could not get one with clean lugs for the price you paid.
    I would try and polish it out myself.

    Re: Beware the JOMA

    If I didn't wear the watch for anything that might damage it, I'd never wear it. Also, it is at a risk of a different kind in a gym locker (theft).

    I take mine off for sailing, and put on a cheap Casio diver, as it can be very high impact. Also cycling, I don't like the degree of vibration.

    Guess it's all a matter of compromise in the end.

    Mmmm… I’d wager nobody there did it. I don’t know if this is worse or better, but your watch is more than likely a return. Wether the original seller was Joma or not, who the hell knows. I have no idea if Joma sources returns from other retailers.

    There are some pretty concrete knowns when buying from them:
    - It will be legit. I have never seen a confirmed fake/rep from Joma.
    - It may or may not be in new, unworn condition. (And very unfortunately, it seems it’s usually higher-end, $1k plus watches they pull this crap on - not $100 or $200 watches.)
    - Getting a refund is a long shot.
    - Their warranty is as worthless as tits on a bore.

    But as others have said, it sucks, it blows, but it’s a nice watch that’s meant to be worn. The money you saved buying grey market was a gamble, and you unfortunately lost that hedge.
