Remember when I got that Nevon watch in the mail? Well, the same day I got back my Zodiac Red Dot auto chronograph from service. The movement had never been cleaned and the crown stem was worn, so it needed some work. As I said it came back the same day and I was excited to have it back.

When I was off work I had a handful to take out to my truck: briefcase, lunch box, Nevon box, workout gear, watches. Too much. Well, before I knew what happened I hear something hit the pavement.

I am angry!

Yup. Two watches on the ground. The crystal had popped off the Carvelle I was wearing that day (yes, the one that belonged to my wife's late uncle). The Zodiac hit the ground as well. Freshly serviced, not yet worn since and it's on the ground. My heart was pounding and my blood pressure rising. Thankfully, the one saving grace, was that the Zodiac was still wrapped in bubble wrap. I gathered everything up and was relieved to see there were no marks or dings on the Zodiac and it was still running, all hands in place. The chronograph fired up and worked as it should. And the crystal popped right back in the Caravelle and it seemed to be undamaged as well.

I have left the Zodiac in the winder the past two days to make sure it is still keeping good time and running and it looks like I can give it a clear bill of health. Hopefully there are no long term problems. I'm still paying for this service, I don't want to have to have it done again!
