The watch probably belongs to someone else and they have a strict protocol not to let anyone touch it other than the owner. There might have been an incident in the past which started this off. Anyway, I hope you get yours soon or manage to find an example which you can try. It is a nice watch.
I had several chances to purchase this at a great price but for some reason it didn't seem quite right. I can't put a finger on it, maybe it is the bracelet or the fact that it looks sporty but it is not (only 3 ATM WR). I do like the dial though.
