Hubby And His Watch


My husband is not really into jewelry but when he saw his favorite tennis player wearing a Technomarine Moonsun Abyss watch, all of a sudden I saw him shopping for one. It is a waterproof diving watch in a stainless case and bezel with a black silicone strap; a water resistant of up to 10,900 meters! When he got the watch, he was explaining to me the importance of the silicone filled case with a permanent bubble floating inside. It is to prevent implosion and to resist the greatest depth of water.

Now came the time to replace the battery. We found out that there are only few certified dealers here in New Jersey so we went to the one closest to our house. They told us that they do not do the battery replacement at their store and they have to send the watch to the Technomarine factory. A special tool is needed to open it up because of the silicone. The store gave us a receipt and they will contact us after a couple of weeks. That was the deal.

Few weeks passed, we never got a phone call. We went to the
store and the owner told us that the watch got lost in transit. They are waiting for the courier to pay them back but my husband does not believe the story anymore when they offered him the same watch but has no silicone bubble inside. My husband knows his watch inside out. He thinks that they never sent it back to the factory and they just tried to replace the battery themselves. They did replace the battery but the permanent bubble inside the watch is gone. Several arguments and trips to the store happened within the next weeks. Hubby was already thinking of going to a small claims court if worst comes to worst.

So what is the ending of the story? On our last trip to the store, hubby told me he will never leave the store unless they replace his watch with a brand new one. He got what he wanted. Hubby walked out of the store with a brand new watch.
