    Watch is Destructive!

    Any of you have a problem with a watch dinging/breaking things besides the watch it self. My Fortis B-42 GMT has made 3 notable dents in my drywall. A couple weeks back I was doing a morning wake up stretch and yawn thing and when my arm came down the bezel left a solid ding in the wall that now needs to be patched and painted. Today I am coming around the corner and smacked it right into the corner, another patch needed. There is third but will probably let that one slide. Yes ,I am a bit clumsy I guess or not aware of my surroundings but this is nothing new.

    Curious if any of you now have a "honey to do list" because one of your watches is a wrecking machine!

    At least you're just destroying walls and not harming your watch!

    Funny thing is the white paint got compressed onto the bezel and at first it looked like the bezels finish had come off, no surprise Fortis makes a nice watch and after some finger nail scratching the watch was good as new. I was furious for about 5 seconds!

    The Fortis B42 series are great looking watches IMHO and it sounds like they're as tough as they say they are.

    Well here in FL, most walls have a swirly, textured, Spanish sort of look. So if I bang almost anything that does not put a hole in the wall, I don't really notice it. At least it would not get me up from my chair to fix it! lol
