I bought this watch when it was reduced down to 123.00 . . so I wasn't surprised when on arrival the battery was flat !!
Amazon tend to get rid of all the old stock at heavily reduced prices so don't be surprised if you need to change the battery . .
Anyway, i did try to return the watch for a replacement but was informed that this watch only qualified for the "refund" option . . . I looked on the site again and the watch was available to buy at a cost of 281.00 so maybe that was the reason . .
I decided to keep the watch and have a new battery fitted and the watch sealed and pressure tested at a cost of 20.00 . . .
I suppose after all the hassle it was worth it in the end . . .HOWEVER . . I can see people's point of view that when you pay for a watch from Amazon, it should arrive in "working" condition !!
ps: its not the first watch i've ordered that's arrived with a flat battery !!
