Android to my knowledge had good CS, and provides an honest description of their product. The usual hype of course but all watch companies have that. I have had two Androids including this one, my daughter has a trans-atlantic she likes. Never had an issue.

Im very happy with my Miyota 9015 fitted Silverjet 500...including the fit /finish of the watch (too big been my only gripe)... that been said, fuck Wing.

Of course I do purple dude, I buy what I like ... just keeping things in perspective and been objective about the fact that, just because I may like it and buy it, doesn't make it anything more than what they are... shit.
That been said, is probably good to pause here and remember that not all Chinese shit were created equal....but that's another subjet for another day.

Great review. I like the Predator, and the Cartier Roadster type cyclops is a winner for me too. My only reservation is that the one and only Android I've ever owned had an ETA 2824-2, and the rotor fell off twice. I sent it for repair the first time, it now resides in the dead watch drawer with along with all the SW200's. This is the first one since that happened that has interested me enough to take another chance. I also like the stadium style cutouts for the hour markers. All in all a well written and thorough review of a winner for Wing, whose enthusiasm and passion for his craft is refreshing.

The 2824-2 is a great movement you can go just about anywhere and get it serviced.

Iknow, I just got disgusted with it, and now it's too small. I figure that if nothing else I'll scavenge the movement for parts if I ever need to. I am beginning the "hmmmmmmmm.......I think that Android diver has become more interesting...." phase. I'll start keeping my eyes open for the right deal.

Has wing been aware of a known issue with this watch which involves a loose bezel? Has he known about it but continued to sell the watch to a unwary buying public?

Does Android consider this "normal"? I wonder if any others have run across this issue with this particular model.

Koi, I have a Predator quartz (charcoal with orange accents) and haven't noticed the bezel being loose. But, I'll certainly keep an eye on it.

Wing is alleged to have made the comment that it was a known issue but normal to at least one person. I have email confirmation about it.

How times have changed; Master Wing recently told Evine to stick it where the sun don't shine. I wonder if the lemmings would even know to get his wares without Skip Connelly or Todd "Makes Jim Skelton Look Like Bishop Sheen" Newton telling them what to buy.
