So I picked up a Marine Classic directly from Stowa during the advent calendar event. It is a beautiful watch and I love how it wears. However, when I received the watch it had an issue with the manual winding action. Every so often when manual winding the crown will "slip." It makes a popping sound and feel. It seems to be about every 4 revolutions of the crown. I had this issue immediately upon receipt of the watch. I contacted Stowa but I guess they were on Christmas break and recently heard back. I was told I could ship it back for 109 euros and they would check it out. I asked if there weren't some alternate solutions as I basically received the item directly from them with the issue. I heard back that the repairs themselves would be free (if it was determined the damage wasn't from shock or dropping. How can I know what fedex did with the watch?) but if I took it to a local watchmaker it would void my warranty. I'm pretty frustrated with the situation and not sure what to do. Any advice?
