My response to this watch:

It feels a bit like a toy watch. I like the colors, and I really like the Nato on it. Princeton colors. Things feel loose in comparison to better watches, and the rotor, in particular, wobbles audibly at times. The reason, however, that I got the watch was the concept, and I do love it. In that regard, it is a poor man's Ressence. I'm very happy. I would not want to pay more than $200 for this watch, but Long Island Watch has it at the right price.

The one thing about my particular watch is that it has a noticeable and audible wobbly rotor, causing the watch to rattle when shaken. Is this normal for a watch at this price? An expected quality issue at this price? Should I just accept that the watch rattles, or does it need attention, if not an exchange? Some guidance please.

Is it rattling or just spinning?

Long Island Watch was awesome in sending me another watch. New one works great. I cannot say enough about how good of an experience I had with this retailer.

Really, its a good looking watch. Very modern and yet it appears to be almost classic in design.

Congrats!
