Lucien Piccard Men's LP-14084-RG-01 Morano Watch Self Destructed Within 3 Weeks, Buyer Beware!

The review below still stands as it is a beautiful watch and in the just over two weeks it worked, it became my favorite.  I have attached a photo to show the problem.  The red sweep hand has somehow become loose and consequently jammed the hour hands stopping the watch. The watch has a five year warranty and you must pay the freight to the watch company plus include a $15.00 check to cover shipping back.  Frankly I am sorely disappointed that it failed and that it will cost me out of pocket expenses to have a watch repaired that did not make three full weeks of ownership.  Incidentally I did not play any sports, do any diving or do any thing untold to break the watch.  It was worn while dining or playing bridge which is hardly strenuous.  So I will be tossing it in the drawer and wearing other watches as I refuse to pay to have a new product covered under warranty.

This is a very attractive watch.   It has the same confusing band that I commented on when I reviewed the  Lucien Piccard Men's LP-40052M-02S .
The small manual that came with the watch did explain how the band works which was my biggest criticism of the above watch.  The only problem with this beautiful watch is the total lack of documentation.  The little manual  that came with the watch did not have this watch in it.   I know, that is hard to believe but I went through it multiple times looking for a graphic for this specific watch. I found one close to it and that was how I was able to set the date and the time.   The stop watch is pretty evident but some input as to how it should be set would be nice.

So beautiful watch, cumbersome band but documented this time and poor documentation on how to utilize the watch features.

I received the watch from Amazon with the understanding I would do an honest review.

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
