Eagle Eye Member Member Geek A couple more DD issues/observations:

I have had the opportunity to look-over about a dozen of this model... About 10 of the dozen had some unacceptable defect (mostly very bad hand alignment or loose chrono seconds hand; however, none were examined further once one major defect was found)... During all this, I also noticed the following, which I have not seen mentioned previously: ISSUE: If (or how well) the dial markers, chapter ring markers, and bezel markers square-up (or not) at 12, 3, 6 and 9; and in reference to the crown, etc... There appears to be pretty loose QC in that regard, if anyone is paying attention at all to that level of detail. OBSERVATION: Some of the movements have a 6-digit number engraved on the decorated plate opposite the balance... Some have the number, plus "Fifty-Seven Jewels - Swiss Made"... Some have neither the number nor the text... How come three (3) variations, and for such a relatively small run; and why/what the difference? I thought DD marked a number on all the movements that they added a module to? 3 Lastest Threads by Eagle Eye Thread

I can't believe there are more issues with this watch, Great observations. I wish you had pictures.
