When I was in school (late 1980s), a friend of mine was given a PloProf by his father, probably as a guilt present because his parents got divorced. Of course, whilst he knew that it was a nice watch, he had no idea that it was a significant watch or that it was quite valuable. One day, I noticed that he had stopped wearing it and when I asked him why, he explained that he had been wearing it whilst chopping hardwood logs and the vibration caused by the woodchopping had caused the hands to fall off. I wonder if he ever had it repaired?
