I was very happy to receive my Flinders watch, it looks stunning! However, upon a closer look at the dial, I noticed several pieces of dust floating around, which is obviously not a good sign. There was also a black speck stuck in-between the vertical lines of the dial, completely ruining the aesthetics of the watch. If this is any indication of the general build quality of Melbourne timepieces, I would highly recommend staying away from this brand! Unfortunately, I had already worn the watch for about 8-10 days by the time I noticed these issues, hence I'm not able to return the watch. LIW offered to send it for a cleaning, and I much appreciate their customer service. However, I really regret buying this watch, and would definitely not recommend it. As a side note, the specs of the watch says it's 9.9mm thick. To me, the watch looks HUGE! I can't make my own measurements at the moment, since the watch is at the service center, but I can't imagine its height is less than 10mm, no way!
