Thought decent stainless steel quartz for £6.99 whats not to like.

this is what arrived

I wasn't expecting high horology but I did expect a working, GREEN, stainless steel quartz watch:picard2:

PS the second hand came of the speedmaster as well.

An Optimist says he has a half full cup

A Pessimist says his cup is half empty

I'm just thankful I've got a cup and there is something in it!!!!!:Shocked:

Don't see a problem.....round case - tick, metal case and bracelet - tick, date complication - tick, cyclops - tick, round hour markers - tick, Mercedes hour hand - tick, crown guards - tick, diver bezel - tick, same brand - tick, running - fucked if I know .....it's almost a perfect match???

I have a sekonda with a crap alloy case but I love the dail and hands so l modify the “omega” case for it.

as for the “Crudden” I shall practice my mod “skills on it before tackling my orient Kano/SKX:D

every silver lining has a cloud.........or something :blind:

Some people never happy. Some people moan their rep watch is 0.0000263598mm thicker than the gen. 

Your fault - should have been picked up at QC stage.

Floating diamonds in a Choppard is delightful, floating second hand in a “crudden” less so:blush:

I am still not seeing the problem.....surely telling the time accurately, and hands by association, is an optional extra in a watch called Crudden ? :rofl:

When you buy a watch that has the name crudden on it, I think you should have set your expectations very low and expected even worse, which I think you received.   I've never seen a cyclops that actually makes the date smaller before.... The floating second hand is a nice touch though.

The vendor of the crudden has given me a full refund AND says he has sent me another watch to change my negative feed back, and now he has emailed me to say that his boss will sack him at the end of the month if I don't change my feedback to positive......... hope he finds another job soon:blush:

Seems like he’s made a good faith attempt to make you whole.  What am I missing? Why not change the Feedback to Positive? What more would you need to be satisfied?:imok:

Agreed....you got two phenomenally inaccurate reps for free.  The poor guys loosing money to make you happy....or he literally can't give them away.  One of the two, probably more of the latter.   Maybe give a good review on the customer service at least?

Sometimes you just can't win but you still have to do the right thing and that's the case here.

Hold on a minute ! there was an auction on eBay for a green quartz watch.

I received a broken black and gold watch.

the advert has been relisted on eBay.

that is FRAUDULENT!

How many people have written off their, miss described/ ,broken watches as “just one of those things”

if this had been an individual who had listed this would you be so sympathetic?

I am now being “ bribed” with a watch I don’t want and didn’t ask for so that this company can go on scamming people

If you really think this “chap” is really going to loose his job I suggest you go on to eBay and buy one of their “green “ watches

The company obviously think this is worth the trouble or they wouldn’t have relisted .

I did not expect high horology or even a first rate watch, but what I received bore no relationship to the description or the photographs 

and that is pure and simply dishonest!

Sorry! 

                I was unaware that DHgate and or eBay actually did QC pictures, I shall bear that in mind in future:D
