This is regarding the piece (Master Geographic) that I posted a couple days ago. I acquired this piece as a pre-owned a little bit less than a year ago from a retailer (not a JLC AD but carries other reputable brands). At the time of the purchase, I was ensured that the watch has never been opened or overhauled (the retailer said they contacted the previous owner to find out such information at my request). Hence, I never did a thorough inspection of the watch using a loupe until very recently. What I found out from the inspection recently is that there are quite a bit of dusts or dark dots (I believe) on the surface of the dial and finger prints all over the place of minute and hour hands... The worst part is the imperfections of painting on the hands of sub dials (power reserve, date, and the am/pm indicator). The hands on these sub dials are rather painted while the hour, minute, and second hands are blued. I am not sure how to describe these imperfections but the edge of painting isn't clearly cut on all these hands and look very unprofessional... Last thing I would like to mention are the blued screws in the movement. Aren't they supposed to be consistent in colour? The blued screws on my JLC don't seem to be consistent in colour at all compared to my recently purchased brand new GO Pano. Has anyone noticed this? Is this normal? Maybe I am being very sensitive here but if anyone can answer me from their own experiences... it will be great.
I am not too worried about the dots or dusts on the dials since they can be pretty much removed when I get an overhaul within a couple of years but when it comes to the imperfections... I am not sure how to deal with them. Would I be able to have these parts replaced when I get an overhaul? Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated.
