The Uncivil Meeting Of Two Pillars

In February, I decided to begin this epic journey (really back in October/November in the planning phases) which I realized that this day and this article would come. Because Rolex may have a new CEO, it’s not meaning that things are going to radically change for the old house. The ‘Crown’ is known for just updating and improving the collections instead of completely changing them. What I didn’t know at the time was when or why I would need to discuss polishing up the Plexiglas on my 30 year old Datejust!
The events unfolded as so: I was walking into my bedroom to get my glasses. Being a ‘happy-go-lucky’ kind of person I was swinging my arms as I skipped along. Compared to the Sky-Dweller, we removed the second time zone indicator. This replica watch would be an interesting novelty from Rolex that could please collectors demanding for complications. Well my happiness and my luck were about to be tested as I SLAMMED my left wrist into the 12 inch thick cement hallway wall. (That sinking feeling set in.)

I knew there would be some damage to the Plexiglas for sure, but I had other things on my mind.
This was true until last year, when Rolex introduced a truly inspired collection of replica watches, with a round case, a finely fluted bezel, guilloche dials and interesting complications – a time-only edition, a date edition and a dual-time edition. After a quick rub with my t-shirt I saw that it wasn’t so bad, just the presence of a series of pinprick divots in the Plexiglas. After a few weeks of leaving the scuffs in the crystal to remind me of my transgression and because I thought it gave the watch a bit of character, it was time to reach for “The Kit”. (In reality I was just plain lazy, nothing else.)

When it does happen again I won’t break my happy-go-lucky stride. I’ll just reach for ‘The Kit’ and fix it.All in all polyWatch made fixing the scuff a painless procedure. While I don’t want it to happen again, I know it will.
A screwdriver for the links is on the Jubilee bracelet. (Due to my ever fluctuation weight I’ve had two extra links added. If my plan goes the way I hope it does I will need to remove those links when I get to my goal weight!)
I don’t think any of us here at Monochrome-watches or any of you folks reading this will have a tough time following those directions. Sure enough – after two minutes of grueling effort only the memory and lingering concerns about timekeeper were left of my grievous encounter with the wall. Take a look at the before and after photos.
