RobinO created a thread "Embarrassing watch moments", so do you have a story of wanting to scream and pull your hair out either because of a mistake you made or the involvement of another.
I picked up this Seiko 7009a a few weeks ago and I decided that I would use it as my first real attempt at giving a watch a little make over. So I picked up some wet dry paper in several grades 240/400/800/120 and organised my small work area. I removed the crystal & crown & movement from the case and then set about my little project. About an hour into my project I heard a comment "ooh look at the little spinning wheel" followed by my words "don't touch that", but it was too late the little spinning wheel was longer spinning and it was "pull my hair out time".
I have put it all back together but it obviously now needs a service as the balance wheel is messed up. Luckily I tried the work on a cheap watch but I was so looking forward to wearing my finished project and now I feel like sickened and cheated.
What's your pull your hair out story.
