In these times of restricted access to retail outlets and travel etc I find this unacceptable, as in my case and in normal times this would mean a round trip of 20+ miles, plus parking and costs for adjustments. Assuming I have transport! I have tried to call customer service and was disgusted with the delaying tactics that are in place, to earn more money from this method.

The one thing I could not live with on this watch is the “Tachymeter” around the dial. It would be nigh-on impossible to use it on a non-round watch case anyway as the hands would rarely get anywhere near it, but the Swan & Edgar Ambassador is not a chronograph, and so it is purely a decorative feature. BraceletLet’s be clear: the Swan & Edgar Ambassador is not aimed at serious watch collectors. The complaints I hear about the brand are legitimate but equally valid for every fashion brand, like Michael Kors or Emporio Armani and so on. All of these are low-quality, mass-produced watches aimed at people who want a watch that looks cool and do not really care about what is inside. It’s another watch from Swan & Edgar. We’ve been surprised by the quality of some of their previous offerings – is the Swan & Edgar Ambassador any good? Swan & Edgar Ambassador Review

The Swan & Edgar Ambassador, then, is unfortunately not a watch I would choose to buy or wear. Buy a Swan & Edgar Ambassador The bracelet is again better than some of the cheap watches I have handled. It is not up to the standard of, say, a Pagani Design at half the price of this watch, but the links are solid, and I have seen this clasp on several more expensive watches. It’s 3cm wide at the watch-end, as with the watch’s design means it has to do the job of lugs rather than sitting between them. The narrative at the start of the call, followed by the customer number not being recognised and then a repeat of exceptional requests to lengthen the call that one is being charged for, like spelling your name yet recognising a street name, utterly disgusting. I try to be balanced at WRUK – and so it would be an unfair comparison for me to point out that the Swan & Edgar Ambassador is not a luxury-quality watch at a lower price. I would instead view it as one of two things:

I would appreciate your response and input on this, so that I may return the watch and close my account with Ideal world. The watch actually was quite well-balanced on the wrist, despite its heft, but I had a couple of real issues with it. Firstly, the crown is too small and fiddly for my taste, and I did not like the way it sits off-centre vertically on the 16mm case side. Second, the bezel is adorned with some fake screws that I felt made it look really cheap. There are some real screws on the left-hand side of the case that appear to connect to nothing, so I am not sure why Swan & Edgar made this particular design choice – especially when the fake screws do not even line up straight! I was also disappointed at the price that the crystal is made of mineral glass and not sapphire. Dial and Hands An alternative to an unbranded Aliexpress watch at half the price with a 5-year warranty. I’ve bought a lot of Parnis and Pagani Design-type watches direct from China, and about half of them had had some kind of cosmetic defect when they arrived.

The problem I found with the bracelet was that it is long. Really long. The review watch arrived with one link taken out, and I could slip it over my hand onto my wrist with the clasp closed! I removed all of the remaining removable links, four in total, and it just about fits my 7.5-inch wrist. The links are not printed with arrows to show which direction to remove the pushpin. This may be a problem if you are not experienced in link adjustment, so remember that the end that looks like a screw head isn’t a screw – it’s a V-shaped piece of metal, and it pushes out from the other side.
