You know the feeling . . . your brand new baby, that was sitting so pristine on your wrist just a moment ago, now has a gash in the case--or a dent in the bracelet--or an ugly scratch across the crystal! Your watch has just come into contact with something . . . something that shouldn't have even been there!

What's YOUR story? What has damaged YOUR watches? What are the "watch destroyers" that we should be on the lookout for?

I'll start . . . I hate those strike plates on door jambs, especially the curved ones that stick out and seem to be just waiting to catch your watch!

What are others . . . and what do you do to avoid them?

The strike plates are a Devil's invention. I have not only scratched watches on them, but also ripped several trousers.

When I cleaned the Crystal with my finger and my cloth.....my friend had told me that I shouldn't do that but I always did that...then my OMAX (Swiss Quartz) got a hard attack... :( .

Sorry for my bad English ;)

The underside of a vehicle is quite hard on a watch. (and knuckles too.)
