    Macys watch fail - Spot the issues with this display!

    Between never having the manual/boxes to G-Shocks, and generally disorganized stock. I really dislike buying watches at Macys, I will buy once in awhile when a really good sell is on, but I keep seeing things like the photo below. Anyone else have the same level of oddity at your local Macys?

    I give you the most awkward watch display ever...

    Not as clumsy or as random as a cell phone. An elegant timepiece for a more civilized time.

    My local Macy's has two large and well-organized watch sections (one for fashion watches and one for the more high-end stuff), and wouldn't have to put out a "grab-bag" display like that. Was the whole watch department that slapdash, or did they just throw their extras into a single disorganized display?

    Also, what watch is that to the right of the hideous ugly thing to the right of the Casio? It's kinda neat-lookin'.

    Is that the scrap plastic shelf? My Macy's looks nothing like that. Complete opposite In fact. That's horrible. Somebody save that poor relic! It deserves better!

    Yep, this is a scrap plastic shelf on top of the glass display...maybe I should ask them if that "affordable" on the left of the third shelf (from the top) is on sale ;)

    Two things here stuck out to me...I am waiting for someone to pick them up.

    Haha, the red DW is just a cheap non-gshock that has the wrong tag on it (the tag is for GLX5600).

    Yes, the Longines was just hanging out as well, just a jumble I got a kick out of...

    At least they're right side up. My local Macy's can't seem to achieve that.

    I would have asked how much the Longines was just in case they got the prices tags muddled as well.
