The seller told me there are some dust particles got on the dial during the watch was opened and the movement was removed to facilitate the drying process.

Well if it has watermarks, you'll know it is not a fake

Then I think you got a good deal, as they went through steps to prevent damage. Nice job.

Maybe Chhon hasnt started off on the right foot, and "Everyman should only have 2 watches" probably wasn't the right thing to say on a watch forum, but hey, how many of us have said we need to downsize our collection.
Yes i was at 2 or 3 is enough, im currently at 85 at the last count, plus projects.
A WIS is a WIS, regardless of how many watches they own, or aspire to own, its the passion that makes a WIS what he/she is.

Chhon is a newb, lets give him a break, and help him with the education that all of us have been fortunate to receive from this forum, myself included.

The defense rests you honer.

Well stated Ivor. If any of us search our early posts we can see how far we have come.



Although I take umbrage at being called a honer

To be fair, I don't think anyone has an issue with "stupid" questions....it was the countless threads with little to no detail and a rather lazy approach....that and what seemed like a trolling sort of disrespect for the place...

Anyway, in the past hopefully, and welcome back Chhon.

Thanks. I was told the watch is running normal and gaining 22spd as you can see on the timegrapher. He wasn’t sure where the water had entered. I am thinking it was likely that the water had entered through the stem tubing due to probably the owner forgot to screw back the crown. That is my guess. And from what I understand the owner took the watch to this seller and sold it to him really cheap. After he cleaned the watch he put on Ebay. Look like the seller has a repair shop and as well selling brand new MIDO watches.

Seller is wristtimewatches

Bergeron? I used to watch that show!




Where is the dust and debris on the dial? Good luck with the Rodico, but I'd suggest a blower instead.

If it has been cleaned I'd leave it be! Unless you want to try and regulate it a little but I would wear it and enjoy it. Hopefully the movement is ok as it seems to be from the TG reading.

An excellent defense...and an excellent mindset amidst an imperfect world!

Hard too see from the photo but the seller told me there are some dust and debris contaminated on the dial when the movement was removed.

Ive seen brand new Seikos be +/-22 spd. I would just wear it. When the time comes for a service deal with any dust then, unless you recieve it and determine its more than just aesthetic of course.

It represents (this is no bull) a smiley face and so psychologically people are more likely to buy a 'happy' watch (as seen in advertising).

The only way that water can get in through the stem tube is if the grommet is worn out. If the grommet is good the leaving the crown unscrewed will not let water in. Perhaps on some Swiss watches but on modern Japanese ones, no way.

I am more likely to adopt a sad puppy and same goes for a watch lol. In all seriousness tho If I'm buying a pre-owned watch on ebay and saw the 10:10 I would suspect.
