    I don't know what was the defect on the gen exactly, but I'm sure it wasn't the same ceramic ball issue, that would have been covered in the guarantee, must have been a construction problem or fitment problem right from the start.

    Or perhaps Patek was completely right to do it and those owner were simply wearing their watch too tight, hard to know

      I haven’t had any luck. Rather disappointed with PureTime on this, as well as the factory. The fact that between this and the bearing, it’s kind of crappy for all of us who just bought there.

          Puretime didn't made the watch, they only got it for you, did a simple QC and sent it.
          This has nothing to do, yet, with Puretime, all those issue have been discovered right now and without having that sort of feedback, there was no way they could have tested this specific part of the bracelet. It's the first time this happened on a 5711 release as far as I know.

          Then they can't control the aftermath either, they can only offer a repair by sending it back. Factory don't want to provide spare or parts, and the TD can't do a damn thing about it !

          For future buyer, you would have to ask PT or any TD to make some additional check on the clasp, but ultimately, it can still happen after that, just do some extra simple work when you get the watch and that should be ok

            Glaude My biggest issue here is not with PT and my apologies if it came off that way, but with the fact that PPF will not give up the pin, or even a new clasp. The only option here is to buy a new bracelet. I get that it’s out of PTs hands, but it’s not worth spending $138 or so when being supplied a pin would make the difference. Same thing with those effected by the bearing issue.

              Indeed, but we can't do anything about it unfortunately, it's a shame but this will have to be sorted by people directly.
              It's a bad move from PPF and certainly not a good way to start in the business (well, they don't care, but we do)

                This is when I miss the days of Angus (@puretime) being active on this forum and passing on these kind of matters to the factories.

                    Happy to report that PT was able to get the piece from PPF for me. Just got an email.

                      Oh that's great, what piece exactly ? The pin, the clasp, a link, the ceramic ball ?

                        They are providing me with the link that has clasp attached.

                          Sound like factories are listening

                          How much does it cost?
