I have my workbench in the garage dedicated to my hobby. It's clean; the tools are arranged nicely; and it's covered by a lint-free soft cloth so I don't scratch what I'm working on. I just sold one of my watches and it was on the workbench ready to be shipped. I just needed to do a once-over and wipe it down. Well, my son decided he wanted to superglue one of his Pokeman characters. Are you cringing yet, because you know what's coming?
That's right, you guessed it. He went out to my workbench and got some glue on the caseback and tops of one of the lugs. Fortunately, it was one of my lower-end watches. But, I had just made a deal and sold it for around $400. I contacted the seller and gave him a refund, but boy, was I upset.
So, any other stories where somebody else mucked up your watch? Let's hear 'em because misery loves company.
