This store wouldn't let me take off the plastic. 馃う

Why?.. don't ask me. 馃し

I didn't love this watch either. But maybe I would have if it wasn't covered in plastic. 

Strange-I'ver never even seen a watch in that price range have any protective plastic. Usually the packing is pretty sparse.

Couple of reasons

  1. 聽No DNA left on the watch
  2. 聽As a consumer who bought the piece, I want to peel the plastic, not someone who decided they were too good for the product.聽

I know of at least one good reason which cost my AD a sale of a Heuer Autavia chrono. They had one on display with peeling cloudy plastic that had clearly been removed and put back on a few times and with a leather band that had already bent to the shape of a wrist and had a crease where it had been buckled. I asked if they had a new one and he said this was the only one they had but that it was "new" (meaning full warranty/ fair enough). 聽I haggled but didn't get much of a discount and couldn't bring myself to pay so much for a watch that didn't feel new anymore to me (even with the warranty). If the plastic and strap had still been pristine, it would be in my collection today. 聽 聽聽

Right but it was a window model. I'm not sure if anyone enjoys testing a watch covered in plastic.聽
