Dropping a luxury watch

This weekend I was playing with straps on some of my fancy watches.. this morning I decided to wear my Moonphase Speedy. Was rushing out of the car and the leather strap comes off and watch dropped on the road.. 馃挃

Careful inspection and no scratches on the face the dial looks 馃憤 BUT there was a big scar on the lug.. 馃槶

Cursing myself for picking this watch this morning. 馃が

I should have checked and then double checked after changing the strap. 鉁呪渽

I don鈥檛 wear it ever for work but today for some reason i picked this up..馃し馃徎

Part of me wants to keep this watch back in vault and never wear it again to do more damage. Thousand thoughts and what ifs.

Have you dropped your most priced possession and what do you do after that?

Scratches are part of your watches history. It can be fixed also. Don鈥檛 stop wearing it! It鈥檚 too nice.

Yeah, a Martian did it when doing battle on the Moon, no sweat. Keep it as is.

Claim it happened when you took a hit in a bar fight. Makes you look dangerous. 馃槑

These scars are just part of your memories. Have fun wearing this nice watch and don鈥檛 ever keep it stowed away. A watch is to be worn and enjoyed , not stored and protected. 鉂わ笍

Thank you.. Still in a little state of shock but will get over it in some days.. i think.. This was a gift from my wife..

Nah man, you got the first dent, now you don鈥檛 have to worry and you can wear it all the time.

Also, at least it is on the 鈥渂ottom鈥 of the watch and won鈥檛 be staring back up at you every time you look at it, will be much easier to come to terms with I bet, rather than a cracked crystal or broken/ bent pusher or whatever.

Next servicing, have them buff it.

Whats the point of a something you strap to your body for telling the time if it sits in the safe all day?

Those are battle scars brother! Rock it hard 馃憡馃徑

Oh man, sorry to hear that. Sounds like everything else is fine and that movement is working properly. That rough edge is pretty gnarly though.

It's a beautiful watch. Wear it proudly.馃憤

Just get it buffed out..all will be good..Enjoy the hobby

This is why whenever I get a new watch, I open the package and immediately dump the contents onto concrete, that way I don鈥檛 have to worry about when the first accident is coming. Just get it straight out of the way and get to enjoying.

Jk of course

Though I did drop my SRPD onto concrete after like a week or two of ownership and it stopped running lol.
