The Case Back and Movement
Those are not scratches on the watch back, that is the plastic sticker still on the back. And this time I was extra careful when opening the watch and used this new trick. I left the sticker on while using the case opener. So there are absolutely no scratches or hairlines visible on the watch back after opening and closing it. But a word of warning: you will have to tighten the case opener firmly and always apply a firm pressure direction case back, otherwise there is a risk that the sticker could make the teeth of the case opener slip and that could lead to very ugly scratches. And I guess nothing hurts more then scratches on a new watch...
I talked about the stamped printing, with the light in this picture the inscription actually looks quite OK and I as I said before, those details on the case back are only a matter of concern for WIS that always go for the maximum and sometimes without taking the price of the watch in due consideration.
Here also clearly visible, the very nice end links attached to the case with a solid link. The crown has a plain surface and is screw-down, the water resistance rating is 10 ATM or 100 m and I was wearing the watch today during my 30 minute swimming with good confidence. But to be correct, I have to mention this, if you open a watch, you ought to test the watch for water resistance. Of course there was no water in the watch in my case, but I just wanted to stress this out. The water resistance could be seriously compromised if you open a watch back and after opening the watch back and before testing the watch, the watch should be considered or treated like a non-water resistant watch.
And of course, one never operates any buttons of a watch while in water or while the watch is still wet. I remember a TZ post, where a fellow WIS destroyed his G-Shock with a single push on the big EL light button. While the button is depressed, water can be easily enter the watch case or is being pressed into the watch.
