I was just at the mall trying to find the watch (Orange monster or the black version) from the earlier thread about indestructible watches. Apparently, there is not a watch in existence according to some dumb jewelry store personnel that has a bezel raised above the crystal. This one lady told me a sapphire crystal is indestructible. "Look at my Rolex, I've had this 13 years". Me: "Well, yeah, but it's not exactly a diving watch..." and you work at a jewelry store, not in all kinds of watch-destroying conditions. She outright contradicted me that I had broken a sapphire crystal. "Well, it sounds like you need to go to a higher quality watch then." Higher quality than you sell, maybe, yes. Anyway, I asked if one of them knew where in the mall I could look at some Tag Heuers (I said "Tahg Hoyer" as that is how it is spelled.) She made a point of correcting me, "Oh, a TAG". (for the Europeans reading, imagine she held her nose and then said "tag" as nasally as possible). Am I being wannabe-Eurotrash? Does the company Tag Heuer really mispronounce its own name, and I am wrong? Bleh. I left the mall with nothing, but I did manage to stump every watch seller in the whole place. "What did you say, a 'bevvel?'"
