|Orca CEM76003d Bracelet- Amazon's desc. is wrong.|| Rate Topic

Timing really is Everything
|WatchFreeks be advised...here's what happened to me:
I was very pleased with the build fit & finish of the watch head. The dark blue sunray high gloss dial is beautiful (it does not turn purple under indoor lighting like many "Inv" watches). The bezel is a 60 click not 120 so the feel is mega solid, like snap snap snap not click click.
Then I took it out of the box & my heart sank... The Orient CEM 76003D Orca that I just received from Amazon had a chinzy folded metal link bracelet!!! . The store claimed that this has a "solid band"; says so right in the title...CRUD.
Here's a link to the description on the Amazon site: http://www.amazon.com/Orient-Mens-CEM76003D-Solid-Watch/dp/B005HZU66Q/ref=sr_1_17?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1339451797&sr=1-17
I would have accepted it if just the end links that mate to the case were pressed metal, but not the whole thing. So, I boxed it up and sent it back. I also posted a review (warning) on the site so others would be aware. I hope they change the description or improve the bracelet.
SO, instead I'll get a Seiko SNZH 53 from Creation... (Right George? )
