While on a Cruise, I picked up my first proper watch from a jeweler in St Kitts. Yeah, my bro already read me the riot act for that brilliant idea.
Turns out the jewler aren't a listed Authorized Retailer (there goes any warranty, if real?), and I have a couple of concerns.
The watch strap has taken a beating having only been worn about 10 times. It's not very good. There was a silica gel packet with chinese writing on it in the main box.
The little white pea on the bezel at the 12 o'clock position fell out (never to be found) likely because it's proud of the bezel and I likely nicked the watch off something. Still, made me think.
I've replaced the band with aftermarket, equally thick with similar white stitching, hense the "no-name" leather strap.
The movement appears to move 4 times per second, and it doesn't lose a ton of time. Interestingly though, I took it off last night at 10pm and at 6am it had stopped. Maybe not wound enough? or I have to invest in a winder/case.
Opinions and thoughts! Any recommended straps? Is the watch (if real) any good?
