The Ocean Diver Chronograph just arrived from Switzerland today, and they had changed everything as Carlos promised, only they had managed to install the scratched up case back again, on the new case ...Carlos asked if I wanted to send it to him so that he could change it for me, but this watch has had more time in the mail going around Europe, than in my possession since I bought it. So wont risk sending it of yet again.

This is of course not Carlos´fault per say, but the one at the factory in Switzerland who assembled it, and should had just taken the movement out, and placed into a new case, with the new dial, crystal, hands AND new case back.

But, as this has 1. taken A LOT of time, and 2. Carlos has stretched himself more than he really needed, I see myself finished with this whole ordeal ...

And, lessons are learned ...in plural.

Rolf

Glad you got it back Rolf! Carlos done it as he promised.
For the case-back, I'm surprised...???
Are you sure that the case was changed or was it reblasted?

Maybe the guy who mounted it thought:
"What the heck, we cut the cost: This guy never sees the case-back when wears it...It's written "change dial and case" , nobody's speaking about the case back, føk it! "

Or he thought:
"Hmm, tonight I will finally go out with the chick who works on the hands&dials setting, I should wear my gold-plated Prometheus chrono with my lucky brown shirt..Perfect....Where is this case back...Ho, there...Hop!"

Well, good luck my friend, breath deep and relax...

Hahaha, you might be on to something there buddy.
But Carlos mentioned, even though he couldn´t say 4 sure of course, that maybe they thought that I had specified a particular serial number ...and would like the same number still (but with a scratched back?) Either way, Carlos offered to fix it yet again, and he to was upset that even now things were not 100%. But as I said, no more shipping watches around for me for quite a while ...I´m done.


But, on an end note. At least now I have a watch free of dust (I have checked quite closely:0), the play in the chrono reset button is completely gone, the internal bezel is not as loose on this one.
And btw, as you asked about me being sure they didn´t just reblast the case. The Greek Son of a .... that raped it whilst "reluming" (aka taking a dump inside it) made such big dings in the case that I would have seen it if it was just reblasted. It is a new case, dial, hands etc, just not the case back.


This has been a loooooong and strange road this ...And one I hope I never will have to walk again.278.gif

Cool that the small issues been resolved also: Positive at the end about those practical details!
I guess that you and Carlos had enough sweating for one watch and he certainly learned something out of it as you did...
