    Hi there, just bought this lovely Monaco and had to jump through hoops to get it.
    Just found out that when the chronometer is reset between 35 - 45 seconds mark the running seconds hand on the right hand sub dial jumps forward 1-3 seconds stops then carries on.
    Has anyone else encountered this?
    Kind regards
    Jon

    Can’t seem to get a video on the post.
    But if you can imagine that I press the bottom pusher to rest the long red hand.
    The little hand in the right sub dial jumps forward a little. Only a few seconds but noticeable

    That's odd, definitely not right!

    Thanks guys. Had so much trouble with mappin & Webb
    Sending me a shop soiled watch with wrong paperwork and box first.
    Then sending me the exact one back after returning it.
    Now this.
    Oh the watch I paid for to begin with ( a autavia heritage cbe2110) they sold after a month waiting for it.

    I dont follow your story 100% but who are these "they" that sold you this Monaco? Sounds like a place the world should be warned about

    Mappin & Webb appear to be selling new watches from a variety of brands but on your first photo I'm seeing strange things. Could be due to the quality of the photo. Could you send a clear head-on shot of the dial?

    Mappin & Webb online.
    I’m under the impression they have 2nd rate goods at head office and grind sales out of unsuspecting customers. Brand new I bought it

    Your photos are not that sharp I'm afraid. It might be better to take them from a bit further so they are sharp, and in clear light. The hour markers at 2 and 10 trouble me. As does the print in the 3 o clock subdial. Don't want to alarm you and it's probably fine but I'm suspicious when a brand new watch operates like that and there are so many copies out there. Did they activate the waranty for you?

    Mappin and Webb are a large AD. The watch is presumably under warranty. They should be making things right.

    I would send it back for a refund. They don't appear cheaper anyway. Better take your business to trustworthy party.
