The watch looks familiar, I think it's the same watch as the link below which was RL'd by the OP.

https://old.reddit.com/r/RepTime/com...t_being_weird/

I messaged Hont that the watch is RL because of the misaligned marker in the dial. - 02/15/2022 - 3:17 PM

Hont replied he can refund - 02/16/2022 - 1:41 AM

I told him that if he can't replace it, then issue a refund - 02/16/2022 - 6:34 AM

Still waiting for his reply whether he will send a new QC pictures or refund.

Will post updates on this.

I'm not sure if Dealers can return a watch to the maker/factory once purchased. If not this could explain why it is being re-sold again in this case. They may be looking for someone less picky.

Best of luck with this one.

Thank you. I told him that I know REPS have flaws, but that 12 marker will definitely bug me everytime I will wear it.

Still haven't got a reply from Hont.

Hont told me to find a shop to get it fixed, he will pay the fee. I told him that the crown needs replacement. Hont agreed to send me a new crown. - 05/19/2022 8:37 AM

Told him I will order two more watches and he can ship the crown with it. - - 05/19/2022 8:41 AM

Asked Hont for the shipping update for the GL'd watch and the replacement crown - 06/27/2022 9:21 AM

Hont replied and said he will ship it today - 06/28/2022 1:23 AM

Hont asked for my shipping info - 06/28/2022 7:07 AM

I replied the shipping info - 06/28/2022 8:51 AM

Up until now, Hont still haven't shipped the watches. The first two watches I ordered from him, he shipped it out quickly. It's been more than a week and he's been ignoring my messages. Not a good experience so far.

Hont messaged me and told me that he will use the old shipping company he used from my previous order and told me wait for the tracking number in 2 days - 07/07/2022 6:44AM

It's 07/11/2022 now and still no tracking number provided. Not a really good experience with Hont. Really hoping he can explain the situation of this delay.
