Many years ago one of my godchildren gave me a watch for Christmas. Recently I wore it in the water. Once it was waterproof. No more. I took it to a little watch repair shop. The watch, new, was inexpensive. The repairman said it would cost $75 to fix.
I left it with the repairman-no charge-so he could repair and resell it and bought an inexpensive Timex. Great watch. How do I know? People hate it.
Alas, the strap on the Timex was chewed up by the Wiener dog. I took it to be replaced. There in the case was my old watch. Fixed. On sale. $25…
…I bought it.
