Why did you feel it necessary to crop out "DAMAGED" in the title of the ebay listing for this watch? Trust me, fresh water intrusion probably would not have prevented me from buying it either, but you make it seem like you got a better deal than you actually did.

Congrats on the purchase, but thumbs down for the lack of honesty.

Because I am embarrassed and dumped buying a water damaged watch

I believe you made that exact same statement in your last apology just before you attacked another member and were given a temporary ban.

"I will be a little more sensitive and informative next time. It’s all good! Thank you. "

I have a question. Did you purposely set it to 10:10 in that first pic.

I just learned that custom in the watch industry. Never caught that after looking at thousands of watch’s.

No. It was seller’s original picture. What is the importance of “10:10”?

Seiko sets the tone to some extent when advertising. They decided at some point that 10:10 was the most astetic to view the dial and did not cover the date/day when photographing.

I am going to have fun with this watch very soon. It’s on its way from Singapore . Will Remove the movement and try to use Bergeron Rodico to remove dirt/debris on the dial and inside the crystal.

I did not know that is what you do with rodico. You learn 10:10. I learn that.

If you dont have it yet how do you know it needs such a decontamination? The pictures available don't show that it would require it. Unless you just enjoy such self servicing, and puting your mark (or no mark) on it. Just curious...no judgements. 😀
