Such a shame... I think the AD here is being unprofessional.

That does suck. The factory polish on GS is sublime

That is my favorite looking Grand Seiko. Maybe now that it is used and polished poorly maybe I can afford it. What was the dealers name.

Such a poor representation from the dealer

That's terrible OP. Real shame it soured your experience. Do you have any photos of the poor polish for reference? Perhaps it will help someone else in future.

Hope they took it back for a full refund!

Good catch by you. OP. Sorry you had the excitement followed by the disappointment. On to the next watch. And I would not use that AD!

Excitement on opening and all looks good from this angle.



On closer inspection

For some reason I saw immediately that it seemed polished. The light was not reflected totally mirror as they use to. Good that you returned it.

They took it back and refund received canít see how they could refuse a refund anyway. Just annoying how they could try and pass it off as new and I certainly wonít be purchasing from them again in the future.

Shame on them for trying to pass it off as new as you say. Glad you caught it OP.
