    Unusual ways to damage your watch.

    I would love to hear your hard luck story about how any of your watches have been damaged. Last night i was in the backyard playing with the dogs when one of them jumped up and clawed the hesalite crystal on my Speedmaster. Just a bit of damage to the crystal. The good news is that it has polished out nicely with some polywatch.
    Can anybody come up with some more bizarre ways to damage their watch?

    I had to change a tire on the parkway and put two deep gouges in the crystal of my FrankenMonster. I was so careful but.....

    I've destroyed three watches in mountain bike "incidents" involving uncontrolled departure from the normal cycling envelope.

    Sweet dog, btw!

    I fell from stairs at home. Hard, tiled stairs. I had to break my finger and to sprain my ankle badly to put some scratches on the bezel of my Black Monster.

    It ticked its good way after that just like it did before. The only problem at the time was that they wouldn't fit over the plaster.

    The usual method is to drop the watch on a tile floor, or taking it off your wrist (more images and stories at http://www.minus4plus6.com/ouch.htm) but am curious as to the unusual methods listed here...

    This one was wrestling with the kids...

    Does spinach & artichoke dip underneath the chronograph pusher count?

    No pics, but I hit a cow doing 60mph and had the air bag go off sending my left hand through the drivers side window shattering the window. I was wearing a G-Shock. No damage to the watch.

    Did the call in the Highway Safety Patrol or the Department of Agriculture?
