Be careful with the ceramic Finissimo!

Mar 13, 2020,15:49 PM
 

My bracelet had some issues where part of it cracked under normal use. No biggie but just remember ceramic is brittle.


It is in service now: this is Valentina from Bvlgari. As you may knew the ongoing situation with the COVID-19, I would like to let you know in advance the watch repair will be delayed for 4 weeks or longer. I’ll keep you updated with any news during this time. Please stay well and healthy!😊😊😊πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

I'm curious to hear how the service experience was once you get the watch back, how much they charged or if they cover the damage through the warranty, etc. Hope you can get it back soon!

Thank you for your good wishes.

They say it’s covered under warranty, so I assume no charge. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈπŸ€·β€β™‚οΈπŸ€·β€β™‚οΈπŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Sorry to hear that! I wasn't expecting this because the manufacture of this piece is quite outstanding. Not sure what happened in your case, but ceramic is obviously quite delicate.

Hope you'll hear back soon from Valentina with good news, and that this was just a 'una tantum' issue! ;-) Cheers.

Thank you..

The ceramic balls which secure the bracelet in place to not make it wiggle against the case broke off on one side. I think it is rather delicate, take a look: Here are the other balls intact ...  

Me too! [nt]

that profile shot really showcases how thin this watch is. 5.5mm? Wow

Wow hopefully they don't bust your balls on covering this under warranty.

Sorry, couldn't resist! In all seriousness, thanks for sharing pics of your experience. Very cool piece - a future icon.

Thank you for the wishes, well the boutique said it should be covered and well see. I wouldn’t mind if they let me test drive the shiny one!!

LOLOL enjoyed the pun. [nt]

No message body

That's a very small cross section for ceramic

Do you wear your bracelet on the tight side? If so I'd recommend a little loose to avoid stress when you flex your wrist.

I wear it with an extra link, but I do find it moves around quite a bit.

Feel I prob just have to be extra careful with it when it comes back.
