    I bought this DD as shown on the photos a little while ago.

    I sent the first one back because the hour markers were badly placed: they were crooked, uneven, out of true, easily detectable with the naked eye.

    I then received this one in replacement, not sure if they simply changed the dial or offered another watch altogether. This one is better but still suffers the same issues. Most of the hour markers are off (and the photo is not as bad as is looking at it on your wrist), some are closer to the outside circle, some are off centre with their respective hour lines, some are rotated with respect to the centre.

    For example:
    6 marker - rotated anticlockwise
    2, 5, 7, 8, 9 markers - off centre with respect to their hour line

    I wonder how can they possibly be placed that badly. Don't they use machines for that sort of thing? How did they make the dial at all? That's done in a machine.

    Looking at the clasp you can easily see the welding debris, it should have been filed off and polished , visible from a mile away if you leave your watch on the table and anyone pays a closer attention.

    I bought DD II from a trusted but i believe i didnt get the right movement, is it difficult to swap for the right one?
    Or is it better to sell it and get one from like puretime
