    Well, you’re entitled to your opinion and I’m sorry you’re not happy, but...

    The fact the window is black should have been obvious to you before ordering.

    And, the logo on the crown not lining up is an ‘issue’ you’ll also see on far more expensive watches.
    Firstly, because there is no ‘stopping point’ when screwing in, it all depends how tight you want it screwed.
    Secondly, the tolerances of getting the screw thread on the crown exactly right AND the screw thread on the case exactly right are incredible - and no one does it. I read a piece from Roger Smith (and I fully trust he knows what he’s talking about) about why the screws in a movement aren’t all lined up exactly the same. It’s almost impossible.

    Roger really writes some good ones, probably one of his best.
