watch question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I know this is sort of ridiculous for this forum, but alas I risk ridicule.

I have a fairly inexpensive watch, a Kenneth Cole actually. I like it though and my girlfriend bought it for me. Today the crown seems to have fallen off and is lost (so it seems). I am pissed off even though it is not really an expensive watch. Any chance I could get a replacement crown or something???

The crown and replacement will cost you more than the watch is worth. Buy another in the same exact model to keep your girlfriend happy or use this as an excuse to get a better watch.

There is a good chance that a decent watchmaker(repairman) can either obtain a replacement crown from the maker or find a reasonable facsimile that would serve the purpose. Of course with a better maker there would be no problem finding a replacement crown but in this case it could prove problematic. As for the watchmakers fee........................

Don't try to repair a KC watch when that happens. I had the exact same thing happen to a KC watch a while ago, paid for the repair and the thing broke again thereafter - total waste of $45.

I broke the glass on a KC watch I own, and I just took it to the cheapest place I could think of: one of those jewelers in chinatown shops near Canal street. I got battery and glass replaced for like $10 or 15. If KC won't fix it, ask how much they would charge; if the price doesnt' seem reasonable, don't do it.

Kenneth Cole watches sound pretty shitty from what I gather here. o.O

Hmmm...mine cost about $75 on sale, worked fine for 3-4 years and then broke. They certainly aren't great watches (and I now wear a somewhat nicer timepiece), but they do the job for a decent price. The trick is to accept that they will break.

The styling is actually decent on some - certainly not up there with the best, but not bad.
