    Any Alcohol Mixed w/ Watches Horror Stories?

    This could be an interesting thread...

    Does anyone have a horror story of messing up a watch when they wear really drunk? Maybe falling down on the pavement and cracking your crystal(), or scratching up the watch throwing your arms around(), or getting liquid inside a non-waterproof watch(:oops:)? If you were wondering, no, these examples do not come from personal experience.

    Share your stories, or fears, of mixing alcohol and watches!

    I have an avid fear of getting a lil too tipsy and scraping my hand against a wall or, tripping up!. Not happend yet (TouchMood). But that is my biggest concern.

    There are plenty of good stories about watch shopping while "inebriated" also....

    Well, I was at a lunch one time and hadn't been drinking when someone asked about my nice shiny new Rolex. It was my very first high-quality watch and I thought I knew it all. I was talking about how tough the crystal was and I demonstrated by tapping it with a butter knife. Yup, you guessed it, the crystal shattered. I learned a very expensive lesson that day.

    Friend of mine told me a story about his friend who went out partying and got totally smashed in some club. At some point in the night, he realized that his Franck Muller was no longer on his wrist.

    I had no idea a butter knife could shatter a crystal. Are they that brittle?

    I am stiss ashamed of this: I was about 17, and got really totally pissed. I threw up, and soaked my watch in the "result". The watch was my Omega f300 with a "wowen" stell bracelet. A couple of days later, my dad saw that the bracelet was "dirty", and cleaned it for me. He came out from the kitchen and asked me how much I remembered from that evening. He had smelled the bits he removed from it. That was 100% embarassing.
