Default can you ever get over a watch niggle

I just bought a suunto core for my outdoor escapades - all the reviews said that the face is a little hard to see, I thought to myself surely it cant be that bad but now that I have the watch im in two minds to send it back, aesthetically it is a ver y watch, but there is something about the face that grinds me, will I ever get over it, I've worn it for like five minutes and I almost dont want to check the time for fear of being disappointment.

Me, no. Don't ever settle for the sake of settling.

If you feel that bad about it, sell it off. I had bought a favorite Casio pvd triple sensor used from Singapore which had the crystal slightly UVed or washed out. Everything else was/is perfect. I never wear it and say I will have the crystal fixed......

I bought the Garmin Felix 2 which has a black background and white text display. Some reviewers said the display was hard to read but I bought it anyways. Now I sort of regret it as I do find it hard to read sometimes. If you're not comfortable with it send it back. There are other options. Good luck.

I don't think so. I accidently put the most tiniest scratch on my 6139 gold pogue dial.. and it bugged me so much i started hunting for another dial. I lucked out on an entire watch with an even better dial and original bracelet for a hundred bucks. Now i'm a happy camper again because the dial scratch was driving me crazy..

Maybe I'm too much pro-seller, but I think the privilege of returns just because one doesn't like the item should be used very sparingly and possibly not at all.

I agree and have taken one on the chin several times on this principle. Returns for faulty or miss described goods but not because you made the wrong decision.

I can't get over alignment issues. dings and scratches can be added to and over time wabi takes over but my eye keeps going back to misaligned chapter dials ect

I have the same issue with my Sunnto Vector, and I've gotten used to it. It's only used as my "outdoor & sport" watch, since I don't care if I bust it up. I say give it a try, you might find that it's not that bad. If not, try selling it off. You might get as much as you paid for it.
