I made the mistake of buying a limited edition Oris Pilot last year. I love its looks and wanted something different, that nobody else had. It was inexpensive (compared to its Swiss brothers) and I was worried if I wasted my money.
I had it for 1 week and it fell off the kitchen counter (about 1 1/2 meters) on to the floor and BROKE!! The second hand came off and the luminous digits all came off and were tumbling around inside the watch.
Thank GOD I was able to return it. I swore I'd never buy another BUDGET minded watch again.
Then, one day, I came across Stowa. Wow, I love this watch. The looks are so simple and structured.
But, I am afraid that I'll waste my money again on something that will break the first time it's dropped on the floor.
What assurance can you offer me to convince me that your watches will withstand normal every day abuse and last a long long time??
