They don't have a service center? Well try the boutique and see what they say. About arguing with Jareds speak to a manager and plead your case.

Would using an AMEX have helped? Haven't needed to contest any purchase using it but AMEX doesn't seem to **** around when it comes to customer service.

I think Ben Bridges made my mom sign some **** when she and her husband bought matching Rolex's that they wouldn't cancel the order even when using her AMEX

Yeah buffing is an excellent alternative to replacing the entire link, depending on the extent of the damage.

i originally thought they were way too deep to be repaired. i mean the scar is still in my hand from hitting it and it was almost two months ago. she took it out with no problem. i should have taken it there first. she didnt even charge me

I've heard that a Scotch Brite pad works well to remove light scratches. The clasp on my Seamaster is pretty scratched up. The links are also scratched, but to a lesser extent.

I might try this method this weekend.

Scratches give a watch character. Brand new watches look stupid.

Is your Visa card through your bank? They might be able to help you out.

I hope you don't have the same mentality when it comes to your car.

Have you ever gotten an old watch polished? There is no greater satisfaction.

I restored an old 60's Speedmaster and it was awesome to see what it looked like in its heyday. Its no different from giving your car the old polish every so often. Tis necessary but not often.

Nope. My watch is only about 12 years old. It's still not up for a polish yet.

I bet they look great, though.

Really? I've had my Seamaster for about 5 years and I feel like it needs to be polished. You must baby your watches. :\

Nah. I just like it with a few scratches on it. It's brushed stainless, though, so the scratches don't show nearly as much as they would on a mirror finish.

I wear my Rolex just about every day. It's my work/dress watch.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Close, my friend. It's a Pro Trek PRW2500, which is the new Pathfinder, but with a different name. These watches are great. Like you said it, the altimeter, barometer, and compass are well worth the $250.00 price tag.

What do you guys think about Oris? Found this watch for sale. 49mm (i like big watches, my current watch is a nixon 51mm)

Take note that the minutes and hour is two different places because of the regulator outlay. would that be annoying? Its priced at almost $2,000 USED here. Im not sure if thats a good price or not (considering everything is more expensive here because of taxes)

You've got the wrist/hand structure to support that large of a watch, it looks like. That would look like a sundial on my arm, lol.


I think it looks pretty damn good, by the way
