    problems with a BR 03-94 from AuthenticWatches.com

    I bought a BR 03-94 Golden Heritage through Amazon and their 3rd party retailer Authenticwatches.com, June 2015.
    MSRP was $5,800 USD at the time but they had it on sale for only $4,075, always loved this watch and been wanting to buy it for years, my 2nd B&R.
    I wore it for a month and the marker at the 10 o'clock position fell off (see pic). I sent it back for repairs which took a total of 9 weeks though they say 3-4 weeks on their website.
    Once I got it back in late November, 3 weeks later the '6' marker fell off, so I sent it back again and it's been 6 weeks with at least 2 more to go before they can tell me if it's repaired or not.

    After reading other forums, I now concerned I may have bought a faulty copy even though the packaging looked like original B&R.
    I noticed on your website that Authenticwatches.com is not listed as a certified retailer, but are they?

    I assume it should never fall apart under normal use, do you think I may have a faulty copy?

    If it was a copy, the watchmakers would have kept it, if they let the watch go it means it's a genuine one

    They do not make a fake/replica of this model, so yours is definitely genuine. Looks like you've just had some bad luck with poor quality control.

    Than-you Gudzzy and Sean, that's a relief to know it's a real B&R, I hope this is the last of the marker adhesion issues but I'm still worried perhaps
    all of them weren't attached properly. I'll seek a full replacement if I get a 3rd problem.
    Thanks for taking the time, much appreciated.

    In anything at all, perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away.

    I'm thinking they'll replace the dial at this stage. Keep us posted.
