Caught sight of this video on FB and watched it after work.

I think it's impossible to have no flaws, even luxury brands have issues, but quite shocking. In summary, to save you a 30 min watch:

1) When the guy pulled the crown the entire dial moved, which definitely shouldn't be the case with the correct fit and things in place (e.g. spacer).

2) Caseback printed 21,800 bph when the NH35 movement inside is 21,600 bph.

3) Upon opening up, the spacer was observed to be plastic and "odd", and out of place for the price range - and it was floating above the Seiko spacer. The postulation is that the plastic spacer is bent and pressed into the Seiko spacer to prevent the entire assembly from moving around freely, which sounds pretty ridiculous.
wa, the same misprint on my model as well.... dont know who do their design, probably supplied with the wrong technical info
but its is pretty well made, bezel clicks tightly, no movement of dial, crown feels solid abeit rough...

I like their design, just find it too premium priced so waiting for good second hand deal. That comparison about the spacer is pretty disturbing though - I was distracted and left it on to listen while switching when I felt interested and it seems like the case was not designed for the NH35 movement.

But not sure if it's limited to early batch issue,and was corrected subsequently. If I was Unimatic, I would clarify.

Some pieces just fly under the radar for so many decades.

This brand seemed quite expensive to me. Nice though.

I think the brand would be more popular if they lowered their prices slightly. Having tried both of them on, this is a superb 39mm piece which I like more than the BB58.
