I am sure it has happened to many of us and it happened to me today (see ). The "let down" when receiving a watch you had wanted BAD.
  • You had the watch on your "wish list".
  • You had done your research on the watch and read everything you could find about the brand, watch, history, etc.
  • You had looked at countless pictures on every site.
You WANTED the watch! You had to have the watch! And then you bought it / traded for it / was given it as a gift / or just found it on the street....

But when it arrived ...... THE LET DOWN. It was not everything you had built it up to be. For whatever reason you just knew it was not right for you. You can feel the initial excitement you had hoped for literally seep out of you through your gut.

Who has dealt with this type of disappointment and what did you do. Post your experiences...

i have a couple.

even a great deal on a new alpina seastrong couldn't help me keep it.

i paid under 500 and still returned it.

while i love the style it was too big, shiny and dressy.

it's still fun to look at in pics

also bought the LE zodiac jetomatic in 40mm and it went back as well paying under 1k


it's all dial and wears as big as 42/44mm

can only imagine how big the regular version 42mm wears
