My watch (a Skagen) stopped working a few weeks ago.
I was in a mall when I noticed it, so I stopped by a watch kiosk. I figured the battery just needed to be changed.
The kiosk operator said it would take a half hour to get a new battery, which is an awful long time to change a battery.
Since the other nearby watch shop was busy with some buyers, and the kiosk operator was a pretty young thing, I just shopped around until it was ready.
No good, she said. The battery was fine-- the watch was broken.
Skagens have a limited lifetime warranty, so I sent it in. In the interim, I was without a watch; I know kids today use their cell phones for the time, but I just don't find that convenient.
Anyway, I just got my watch back today.
Of course, the service slip said: "Replaced dead battery."
