After I got it, it stop working ( which is not that big of a deal ) ETA movement is a standard and easy to service here in Thailand so I took it to service.

I always told the watch maker that don't touch the dial the case the glass and everything, just clean the moment and lube the jewel and change the rubber seal

( just try out this service shop, I usually go to my friend to get it service but he is very busy )

I leave it for 2 day and it came back like this.

, so I ask the watch maker "why you change the second hand ?" he said "it was so rusty it broke in half" and I said "give it to me

I will find a way to work it out" , and you know what he reply?..." I already throw it away " . My heart drop to my feet, that point I was so piss off , and reply to him like, WTF !!

this sounds even more serious lol.

Sorry to hear. I can understand you feel bad about this. It will be hard to find a matching hand with the same patina.

I think the watchmaker should atleast make sure you get a correct hand for this watch.
