Hello friends, I received two Alphas on Tuesday a polished Radiomir and a retrograde second. They both worked perfect and the fit / finish looked to be very well done. That's what makes this even more preposterous. The radiomir does not have fixed lugs, instead it has four lug bars that screw into the case to hold the band. Well two of the screws were mangled and the case scratched. I do not see how Alpha could let such a simple thing as putting a band on the finished watch mar such a otherwise nice product. Do they need to buy new screw drivers? do they have the right size screw drivers to begin with? Does the person putting the strap on have all thumbs? I do not see how this could happen? Still happy with the watches. I wish they did not scratch the radiomir but i am not going to send it back. Its more of a hassle than its worth. Alpha was very good about responding to my Emails, I think I will drop them a note about the quality control issue.
