I was obsessing over this watch for months and stalked it at the Nordstrom’s watch counter regularly. The boyfriend kept telling me that I didn’t need to spend almost $300 bucks on a watch that he knew I wouldn’t wear regularly. I thought about it over and over. Though I hated to admit it, in the end he was right. I never wear watches. Plain and simple as that. So what did I do? I went to Target and bought a similar style watch for $20 bucks to test myself. I wanted to see if I could wear a watch and not hate having some heavy thing weighing my arm down. At first I rarely wore the thing, but over time I got over that weird feeling of something’s on my wrist. I got so many compliments on the watch even to the point that people thought it was the real deal (MK brand.) Now I wear a watch almost daily and feel naked if it’s not on my wrist. Last October, the boyfriend gave me a Michael Kors watch for our anniversary. So I retired the trusty ol’ Target watch and started pimpin’ the Michael Kors watch. Today while at the mall with the boyfriend I noticed the little rhinestones on my watch were missing. I was beyond sad when I realized this! I’ve been in love with this watch forever and now that I finally have it (for less than a year), it’s falling apart. What the!?!? Whyyyyy? So what did I do… I ran to the sales associate at the Nordtrom counter to ask her if they had any repair plan put in place if people came in with missing bling on their watches. She informed me that since it was a “fashion watch,” it is normal for the rhinestones to fall out with regular wear. And that all I needed to do was bring in my original receipt and they will replace the watch for a new one. I was so happy to hear her good news. Talk about a tidal wave of emotions…first shocked that I lost some stones, then sad that my watch was incomplete, then pure joy that they would gladly “fix” my watch with a new one. I plan on going back tomorrow with my receipt to have my watch replaced. Fingers crossed that the sales associate helping me tomorrow will be just as nice.
Can you see the missing stones? Do you think I’m overreacting? Don’t you think that if you spend almost $300 bucks on something that it should last at least a year before falling apart? Let me know your thoughts.
