Anybody wanna buy an Armani Exchange watch? Brand new in box. Saw a Tissot I want instead so I need to sell it before I consider buying the Tissot.

If it skips every two seconds, that's the low battery indicator.

I think the store attendant had to force it closed after replacing the battery. Working on second-hand info as I couldn't go myself

The case should never be difficult to close. There could be some compression on the movement causing a problem. Maybe the battery was the wrong size or out of spec. Maybe the seals weren't seated properly. Changing a quartz movement battery is simple enough so something is wrong.

Thanks. I have an Auto and a Ti, also. I like the stainless Eco best because it doesn't scratch easily and never stops. I've seen the new Eco-Drive but not an automatic. There is the automatic Seiko Tuna with the NH35A movement. I've been looking for one.

yes they had a few tuna-styled releases last year for their 50yr diver anniversary. i like the proper tuna with the 8L automatic. cannot afford one tho.

found the number for the citizen - nh8384. it is not an iso-diver tho. just good for 100m with no screwdown crown.

My three Fossils - I have had them from 2008, 2010 and 2017. No issues except for the hybrid smart (middle one) which isn't connecting to my phone anymore. Still on warranty though so will carry in to fix when I get some time and or someone is going up.
