I popped in to a local Tissot dealer today to have a look at the Visodate. The watch has what seems an odd feature – you can either have the regular day display or have it shown with a number before the day as well. I asked what the purpose of this was. The assistant didn’t know and called one of his colleagues over. They didn’t know either. They then proceeded to rapidly wind the hands backwards and forwards in the 10pm-4am zone, then started changing the date and day display, then some more hand winding backwards and forwards, then some more flicking of the day/date. I stood there watching them in horror, in my mind hearing the date mechanism being mangled by this barrage of mistreatment. Had I liked the watch I sure as hell wouldn’t have bought that particular example.
Have you witnessed other horrors at the Jewellers?
