    BR 93-02 received as a gift so I need informaiton about it

    Just received this beautiful watch and would like to know more about it.

    1- Why is there a screw on the back with a warning not to turn the screw? The temptation to turn it is HUGH.

    2- What is the time accuracy? It isn't a chronometer, as far as I know.

    3- I got scared about some comments of the rubber band "breaking" or causing the watch to fall. Any help to prevent this, or what to look for to see if it is about to happen, would be very welcome.

    4- Any links for more detailed information??

    Thanks
    Ed

    Hi,
    1 if you turn it, you'll remove the movement, and lose your warranty
    2 from 0 to +10sec per day
    3 if your BR is new, you have the new rubber, better than the old one.
    4 read all the threads of this forum and you'll become as experienced as me!!
    Best,

    I read that the small “do not unscrew” screw once undone exposes the crown stem within the case and then one can insert a small tool into the hole thereby releasing the crown stem and thus allowing the movement to be removed.

    No idea if this is true or not.

    Thanks and here are pictures

    Thank you for your help.


    I am an engineer an when I see a screw with the instructions not to turn it, the temptation is fierce.

    Here are the pictures with the infamous warning.IMAG0219BR Face.jpgIMAG0220BR Back.jpgIMAG0220BR Back.jpgIMAG0219BR Face.jpg

    What a fantastic gift. Congrats on the watch. In regards to the rubber trap just remember it follows all characteristics of rubber. Treat it with care and love and it will return the love back to you.

    Hey Everyone:
    Thank you for the information and the congrats. I really do look forward to wearing it BUT within 5 days it first ran a minute fast a day and then the power reserve would not keep it running overnight on the dresser.
    The authorized, reputable dealer it came from took it back for adjustment immediately and I hope to have it back quickly.
    Best recommendation for purchasing from an authorized dealer.

    One and a half weeks later and "reputable" authorized dealer says it will still be another week or so; and that is a RUSH.

    When I asked for another watch, they said no; it has to go to repair even though it was brand new. Hmmmmm. What happened to "reputable"?

    Will keep you posted.

    Finally got my watch back. Still some issues.
    I found a thread called ACCURACY ISSUES and posted an update there. It seems like the logical place to continue since others are experiencing similar problems.
    Thanks to all and I'll see you on the thread ACCURACY ISSUES.
