    Question Need HELP!!

    I purchased a Hadley Roma "Heavy Metal" bracelet for my Invicta Pro Diver form The Watch Prince.

    The price was $37 plus $25 shipping (I live in Canada) so total Canadian it was like $72

    Anyways, I get it home about to put it on and realize I have the 22mm when I need the 24mm

    So I email TWP back and ask if they could do anything for me. They of course can refund me the money and I can purchase the right size. However, they will not of course refund me the $25 shipping.

    Plus, when I order the right size, they'll charge me another $25 shipping. That basically means I'll be paying $60can worth in shipping for a $40 bracelet...

    Anyways, I asked if I could just send the very end pieces back to them and in term they mail me the 24mm.?

    THey said that it cannot be done because the end pieces are fixed.

    Can anyone confirm?

    SO why can't they just send me the end pieces off of a 24mm.... I can take mine off and put the new ones on....

    Or no?

    probably they are already packaged, and also it could be just a plain ol PITA for the seller to change them out? IF they are packaged then by changing the end pieces from 22 to 24, would leave them with a non new item, thus rendering it harder to sell?? maybe.

    Why not get another but 24mm, this time, and use the 22 for another application? I agree though why waste the expense in extra shipping.

    Could always sell it here on WUS? and use the funds for the size you really needed.

    Yea, I know it would be a PITA to do change it out and I understand them not wanting to do it but sometimes it's the little things that count.

    As a new customer/first time buyer, I was kinda hoping they might want to make a good impression.

    But I know I'm probably asking too much.

    Yes, I could re-sell it on WUS but I could only get maybe $30 minus shipping which is pretty much the same as getting a refund from the watch price...

    So stupid....

    This is a little like the saying that kept getting drilled into me when I did my Carpentry / Joinery apprentiship

    "Measure 2 or 3 times and cut once !!!"

    Same could be applied to this

    "Measure 2 or 3 times and only need to order once"
