I’m not happy with Wegner.

Some time ago, I purchased a Swiss Army Wegner wrist watch.   Silver bracelet, blue face, “Military” model.  Looks good.  You’ve seen it in many Ogre Videos.  And then The Nightcrawler Effect hit me.  And the watch ejected off my wrist like a Jet Fighter Pilot struck by a Sidewinder.

So I sent the watch back to Wegner to get the bracelet fixed and the crystal (which had been scratched) replaced.   After 3 months the watch came back.  With a bracelet that was so small I could only get 4 fingers of my hand through.  WTF?  And the scratched crystal was still there. So I send it back.  This time it came back with bracelet that fit perfectly.  And its still scratched.  I’ll leave it like that.

However, I no longer want it.  I’ve replaced it with a Nixon.  “The Scout”.    So… I’ll put that Swiss Army Wegner Watch up for Trade.   Make an interesting offer.
