    Default XEMEX and why I don't trust quartz

    Hi Everyone,
    This is my very first post so be kind.
    I love the design and appearance of this watch so I put a new battery in it and wore it for a couple of days.
    One morning it quit for no reason.
    I got it going again but I can no longer trust it and in my profession, I need a reliable time piece.
    I have never had a mechanical watch fail me yet, so I am back to my manual wind Omega Speedmaster.

    Looks like your Xemex may be a rep.

    "Really" Bought it off Ebay some years ago. Why would anyone make a 'rep' out of such a low sales volume watch. But you could be right.

    There is money in selling faddish items.

    But the answer is quite simple. The margin of profit is likely the prime mover.

    As far as failures. I have had them all fail or stop and it costs much more to fix a mechanical watch than to replace a battery.
    My respect is earned as I will work to earn yours while be respectful.
