Incomplete delivery, no reaction from seller

I ordered a watch and 3 additional straps but only 2 were in the delivery. I wrote back immediately but no reaction from seller so far.
Even more dissatisfied because I paid lots of import taxes on it which almost doubled the price.

Beautiful, Simple and Elegant Watch !!

Everything as should be. Great costumer service. I bought a Black Freiheit an ordered with the wrong band, I asked to change it and the answer was immediately. I got the watch after a week of ordering it at my home in Florida. It is a very light and comfortable watch to wear. No complaints at all, Everything perfect !!!

Black Freiheit with mesh band

This is my everyday work watch. After almost two months with it, I’m very happy with the quality for the price. I love some of the subtle details like the notches on the 12, 15, 30 and 45 marks that are reminiscent of some Junghaus design details. I went back and forth between a Sterglas and Tapferkeit and very glad that I went with this option. Very high quality for the price, looks fantastic and I would definitely buy another timepiece from them in the future.

A nice and beautiful watch

This is my first automatic watch and I love it. The design is smart and minimalist and, personally, I think that the black option is the best. It's exactly as I expected, except that the black dial is not so black as in the pictures. That's because it has a very sutile texture that actually works very well in the design.
A good thing for me is that this watch work with all kinds of clothes. I usually wear sport or casual clothes and this watch is perfect for them. It's in a medium term between a very elegant and sofisticated watch and a more "normal/casual" one.
On the other hand, the strap is very comfortable and the "windows" in the back is pretty cool. You can see part of the pieces working.
The worst things for me were:
1- It was stopped in the customs and I had to pay high taxes and do some bureaucracy management. It's not the seller's fault. When I asked him for some extra information, James replied very fast (thank yoi, James).
2- I'm not sure if my unit has any issue, but the battery doesn't last 42 hours. I work in home, so every night the watch stops. But when I have a more "normal" day, having some walking moments, etc, the watch just lasts about 20 or 24 hours. I suppose that maybe the movement needs some maintenance. It's not a big issue at all, since I like the process of set the time, but probably it will need some adjustments from a watchmaker soon.
On the other hand, the watch gets ahead about 5 seconds a day.

As I said, these are small issues. The watch is nice, it uses nice materials and the design is awesome. I'm very happy with it and I recommend it.

Unfortunately less attractive in real. Finish and quality are not what I hoped for.

It's a nice watch at an interesting price point, but the finish is not what I hoped. What kind of ruins it is the lack of reflective coating on the cristal. Let's just say I have a number of pieces at the same price point with better finish and better calibers. But so far it seems to work just fine...
