I hear that all the time. People will admire my watch, ask me how much I paid (I hate that question so much, but sometimes I will answer). And they will say, "Wow! What a ripoff for a watch, I'd never pay that much, I just break my watches."
Really? You're doing activities to routinely break your watch beyond repair? Or you don't have the common sense to take it off while you're doing a damaging activity?
And do the people who are doing activities rough enough to physically break a strong piece of metal ever happen to break their arm or other body part?
I guess that keeps people from buying a 90 dollar watch every year as opposed to a quality one that'll last them a lifetime.
I've also heard, "I don't own a nice watch because I'd just lose it."
You lose something that's attached to your arm?
I understand people who don't want to own a nice watch or A watch at all, it's their choice, but don't go telling me watches are too expensive because your dumb ass breaks them. By that stretch of the imagination, my Ray Ban sunglasses must suck because I doubt they'd last being run over by my car.
Sorry, just needed to vent about the millions of times i've heard those excuses. :)
