How sad is it that it's some small measure of success to get your watch back after sending it in for repair a year ago?
Although I still really like the design of many Kobold models, I would never purchase one new now, and I'd still be hesitant to own a used one. IMHO, the name has been tarnished with all the shenanigans of MK. Sucks, because a few years ago, I really was enthusiastic about them & wanted to join the club.
Sorry, I didn't mean to come here to dump on the brand or this thread. Just giving my honest opinion, FWIW.
