New watch anxiety

Pretty quick post… that pain, and anxiety you feel when you bang your watch off of something for the first time (in this case a chair) 

quick edit: i should have specified a bit. It’s not so much the scratches and dings I’m worried about. I was more worried about the movement itself. I know mechanical movements are stronger then some give them credit for. but it’s an honest anxiety for someone who struggles constantly with mental health

cheers, and appreciate everyone’s comments.

Haha, well could always use a reason for just one more watch 😋 but I think I need to save this month

That's why I wear cheap watches so I never have to worry about it.

My anxiety cones naturally from being broke and stupid.

Fair enough. Most of my watches are pretty budget friendly (around the 100$ mark). it’s always still pretty painful though. partly because I’m just a generally anxious person, and partly because I don’t usually have money to just go and and buy another if one breaks 😅

thanks for the comment, cheers

The good news is that you now don't have to have that anxiety with that watch.

Re read this, I see what you mean. yes, once you bang and ding a new watch a few times. It becomes much less stressful. that’s why I call it the “honeymoon faze“ lol

Easy solution, send to one of us for a week, let us break it in, get the first scratch, etc. You get it back free of new watch stress.

lol, that’s a tempting offer. but I think I’ll be good 😉. I’ll get over it eventually. just takes some getting used to

Rite of passage.

A watch worn for a couple of years with no signs of wear is truly an abused watch.

Fair point. things are meant to be used. it still hurts the first time they get dinged. but every one is a story.

All dings eventually become scars and thus CHARACTER! 😎

Oh yeah I definitely don't have 160 bucks laying around. But I just accept that watches will get damaged as part of their use.

Yeah that’s true enough. I’m honestly just a little ball of constant stress, and anxiety 😅. but I am working on that
