I wasn't a registered user when this happened, so I had forgotten to write about until another thread just reminded me about the incident. So when the watches went for sale and you could make an appointment to try a watch on, I made one for the soonest appointment. I walk in and tell the guy what I'm there for and have to wait around 10 minutes till it was my time and there was a free salesperson. I get this nice girl who ask me what I'm interested in and I tell her the Sport SG. She takes me over to the counter and proceeds to pull out a watch and lays the presentation mat out in front of us. Now for those of you who weren't there the first few days, as usual it was a madhouse, Standing Room Only in that store, tons of people trying on watches, crowded tables, people staring over your should, basically it was packed to the gills. Anyways, as many who tried on watches will tell you, there were treating the watches as if they were more precious than all the puppies in the world. I take off my watch and lay it on the mat, I guess it's important to the story but my daily wearer watch is a Panerai 194, a big 47mm wide 2500 meter rated dive watch that was only made in 1000 pieces in 2004, and cost more than a watch edition. So I lay my watch down on the mat and she puts the puny, featherweight aluminum watch on me, and I play with it for a few seconds, she ask if I would like to try a SS, I say why not, so she takes my watch off the mat and tosses it to the bare wooden table and gently places the SG watch on the mat, as if my tuna can looking timepiece had dirtied the sanctity of those virginal watches. I laugh and look at my Wife and she just laughed at me and walked to check out the new Macbook. I just thought it was funny how all the salespeople that day I was in there, were acting like those watches were the finest things in the world.
