    Ordered Hamilton... received Tissot... would you return it?

    Ordered this:

    http://www.glooks.com/watches/watch_...tonn&cat=watch

    but received this:

    http://www.glooks.com/watches/watch_...ssot&cat=watch

    Keep or complain and replace?What do you guys think?

    I attached borrowed pics of both. This came in the mail today and I really had no time to take photos.

    I don't mind tissot but it seams that hammilton would be tide bit easier to read time.

    Bizzare situation no? Any of you guys ever ordered one item but ended up receiving another?

    P.S.

    Tissot pic is miss leading... tissot hands are really silver colour not white as on the pic. This makes is "not so easy to read" but you kinda get used to it quickly. There is no lume on tissot at all.

    P.P.S.

    I was charged for the price of hamilton, even thou everything in packaging says "tissot". So I paid 660 or so not 695 for Tissot.

    While on the subject, did anyone ever maintained 7750? Is it expensive to do? If yes, how often did you maintain it? Just curious, thanks.

    I'm a Hamilton guy, so it's a no brainer for me. I would also want the watch that I ordered, not that there is anything wrong with the Tissot.

    Well, if you wanted the Hamilton watch and got another one, then I should think you'd want to switch it up.

    I see you're in Canada too, so if you want to switch then that'll be tons of fun to deal with, two more border/customs crossings. I've ordered things from the US and had it take 2 and a half months to get to my door, I don't even bother anymore.

    It should be your call clearly, there isn't a huge price difference between the two.

    Two of my favorite brands....in this case I'd lean towards the Hamilton, but if you ordered the other watch....it's their mistake, get the watch you ordered.

    Wow that's certainly odd duke!
    I think readability is a wash between the 2 and I like the Tissot bracelet more so one vote for Tissot here.
    As MMT mentions I'd make sure there wouldn't be any warranty issue then just decide on the relative merits in your eyes.
    Let us know how it goes!

    I'd return it and get what I ordered, but that is just because I think it is the right thing to do. I may ask for a discount though for the trouble. :)

    Hmmm... it is a bizzare error indead... for one I have to ship it back but mind you I already paid duties for this... if I take it back Canadian Customs will gladly charge me again...

    Tough choice. I like the fact that I can read hammie at night (or so it appears).

    Will think about it overnight and decide what to do tomorrow.

    Thanks for all the answers folks it has been much appriciated.

    P.S.

    Man... one day I have it and I'm in TOTAL love for 7750. Hooked it's a word I guess ...
