    What is the worst thing that happened to your watch and it us still good

    Hello, alot of very interesting topics on here. I would like to here from people on what were some of the worst things your watches have been through and made it out fine where they still work great even though they might not appear good.

    Hmm well I crashed my bicycle and landed on my Seiko 5 Military. It was fine, albeit scratched.

    My PVD BFK fell onto tiles from 2-2.5 m. The bezel is dented, some of the enamel flaked off the insert, and the crystal chipped. But it still keeps great time, and is still water resistant. Tough little guy.

    I forgot to take off my Sinn U2 before I showered.
    Scary. I had to check the CuSO4 capsule every hour, to check for water ingress!
    Still OK.

    That was `a joke.

    No the worst was something similar, but a different watch.
    I jumped from a friends boat, from about 7 meters hight, wearing my JLC Master Moon.

    It was OK. Still is.
