    Oxidized Hands On Chronoris

    I bought an Oris Chronoris automatic watch a few years ago in HK.
    Unfortunately there were a few problems with the watch, which Oris fixed promptly and without too much agony. HOWEVER for the past 2 years I have had to return the watch to them on 3 separate occasions because the hands keeps oxidizing, which means that eventually they will begin to rust. On each occasion I have requested that they replace the hands, which they say they do & yet the hands oxidize.
    Has anyone else experienced this bizarre phenomenon? If so, how have you dealt with it? I am fed up with returning the watch to Oris.
    Any answers are appreciated thank you.Name:  IMAG2210.jpg

    I've seen the problem before on a couple of Diver Dates but it's the first time I've seen it on a Chronoris. In the case of the DDs new hands were fitted.

    According to Oris, they replaced the hands...twice. I haven't quite mustered the patience to send the watch a third time.

    I seem to recall that one of the DD owners had to have the hands changed 3 times. After the third time things were looking good but, understandably, he was a little nervous.
