Hm, I am not going to just cut it off as bad taste, but the movement is making me wonder....Less than 40 hours of power reserve and a finish as if it was made in Asia (no offence). In my world it should be able to run for 45 hours plus and have flame blued screws instead of coated blue ones.
I would let it be for the obvious lack of good quality in the details.

The bezel does not need to rotate. Just start all your dives at the top of the hour and all is good :lol: :lol:
