  1. When you say you've contacted eBay do you mean you've raised a claim or just sent an email to them? You need to raise a claim, if the seller doesn't respond to the claim then eBay step in and will review the case https://pages.ebay.co.uk/ebay-money-back-guarantee/how-to-help.html
  2. if it's ebay you should raise a claim via them not the carrier. You should be covered under their money back guarantee.
  3. I think somewhere like startime supply probably sell a 1:1 case back that would fit.. If not you've got phong, ruby watches that would be able to supply. Or even a genuine - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Rolex-Datejust-1601-Caseback-Year-70-Part-/154536726876?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l6249&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0 http://www.customwatchconcepts.com/product_info.php?products_id=17 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/383145658971
  4. Watch isn't quartz, you can hear it winding it in the video. To get more than a day out of it wind it more/keep it worn to keep the rotor spinning. Sounds like the moon cycle and month wheel have been misaligned - a watchmaker in your country can sort that out. For reference - I bought a genuine perpetual calendar (montblanc) that was misaligned in a similar way, the month changed over on the 24th. I was the second owner and bought it from a high street dealer who had it fully inspected before sale - no one but me noticed so I wouldn't expect this to be perfect on a chinese rep. The day, if it's a working indicator will be changed from a recessed pusher on the side of the case most likely. I don't see a brown spot but did Andrew send you QC photos? You bought a rep watch - if you expect perfection prepare to be disappointed.
  5. Something smells phishy about that link
  6. Yes, they are your competitors. Good luck getting them to help you Sent from my SM-N976B using Tapatalk
  7. One of the markers has fallen off the IWC - check out the first pic the marker at 10:00 has ended up on the bezel at 7:00 - be careful it doesnt scratch the dial...
  8. Don't think so, with Tudor the model names were reversed
  9. this watch just doesnt do it for me I'm afraid. I love the bronze LE though and Oris are really hitting the ball out the park with their other models such as the 'Bico'
  10. I have signed up for this service a few days ago and just got an email from them offering free physical cards for friends and family if anyone wants one just drop me a PM
  11. The dial doesn't look great, low quality printing, also I think that model is only available in white gold. Don't think it's real I'm afraid Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk
  12. Phong all the way, unless you want to go Gen. There's a NOS on chrono24 for around £1.5k if I remember correctly Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk
  13. Damn that's looking good If you're set on blue let me know as I'll buy the dial and insert when you've got replacements. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk
  14. Really looking forward to seeing these pan out. I've got a hankering for a 9411 too so will be looking for hints and tips. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk
