    No pics but I once told the wife I was getting another watch because I was bored waiting for another that was incoming. She slapped me quite hard.

    Managed to get both a bruise and a divot in my lower left shin trying to break the fall of one of my 6139's that suffered a spring bar failure. Fortunately there was no damage to the watch none of the blood got in. Mission accomplished.

    Broke off two fingernails trying to remove a stubborn spring bar once, otherwise save most of the potential injuries for my motorcycle rides.........

    How many watches (above 20) have you bought since this slap and pair?

    (Wondering how effective a disincentive that slap was)

    I've dealt fatal injuries to two straps in the name of getting the buggers off my watch
