    This post has appeared elsewhere in the past. These are just some things that I observed over the eleven years of selling watches in a high-end boutique. I started in the industry in late 1999 and worked in one particular store for about six months before returning to work at a Borders Bookstore where I had previously been the Genre Fiction Supervisor.
