While shopping at the local J C Penney department store on Black Friday, I experienced the typical madhouse environment expected when you entice people with sales prices that are time limited. I did however, score a Seiko Land Monster with SS bracelet for a very good price of $292. I was very happy until I was offered the buyer protection package for an added $49 of which I politely declined. As I declined this offer another Sales person chimed in and said that I would be sorry when I break the crystal. This got me to thinking. I have had many watches throughout my life and I have never experienced a broken crystal. I have scratched many a crystal but have never broken one. This brings me to the question: How many of you have expereinced a broken crystal and if so, what were the circumstances that caused the damage?
