Citizen C330 promaster

on Thu 29 Dec 2016 - 12:10
well my C330 Promaster bought from eBay arrived this morning
its amazing how deceptive eBay images can be
this to me looks like a good clean watch


the reality is unfortunately very different Crying or Very sad
its a stinking, filthy, wrist cheese covered mess

if you look closely between the lug there is even a feather so i assume the watch spent the last 20 years strapped to an Ostrich leg Mad
the bezel is full of gunk as are the bracelet links



three of the 4 pushers are jammed solid which i suppose is not surprising
the crystal is scratched badly and to top it all off some pillock has tried to re-lume the dial and by the looks of things blind folded using a fencepost



i am in half a mind to claim a refund for it, but it can be saved and it really just needs a new crystal, the new lume removed and a clean in sulphuric acid  Razz  seriously though a ultra sonic cleaner will suffice
i just p's me off that someone would knowingly sell a watch like that, i couldnt  Mad  its embarrassing

i guess the moral of the story is: you cant win them all

you wouldnt think it was the same watch that is in the first photo. I look forward to see how it looks after the ultra sonic clean .. please take a photo of the water after you have finished as well really curious as to how gunky the water will be.

Bruce, I have a feeling you'll have it looking good in no time, you'll have to show the pictures once it's done.

Disappointing but if all the negatives can be remedied it would transform the watch. Very Happy

A polite request to the seller for a partial refund given the varies issues may be worth considering / trying.

i can sort it, thats not an issue i thought it would just need a clean and a polish though, but to be fair how many people would know a bad watch from a good one, i suspect he bought it and it wouldnt work right because of the stuck pushers
