I was interested in buying one. I’m a sucker for divers and the Abalone dial on a diver seemed interesting. After reading the discussions, I “wised up”. The seamed dial issue wasn’t handled well by the watch company. I’m certain that the simple replacement of the watch would have been far less expensive than the ongoing loss of potential customers. The vultures who haunt this place to bury us with their opinions and sage advice had far less impact on my decision to pass. Those with no lives tending to harangue the boards who have an opinion and trash talk about everything get quickly discounted in my eyes. That said, the continued battle between the Drop moderator and the watch vendor doesn’t send good vibes for any product offering. I thank the trolls, the ongoing battle between Drop moderator and Aquatics rep, and the apparent vendors disregard for a customers complaint, for helping me decide. Too bad. Looks like a cool watch that might have had a place in my collection. I’ll head to LIW and buy one of the Phoibos Abalone divers when they are back in stock.
