Believe me - I know all about resetting the chrono. But it don't worko... smile I'm nothing if not tenacious, and I'm a by nature I'm a researcher (probably with OCD) and I tried everything - it's been 20 years smile

And - remember that I also said that we sent it to Tag about 10 years ago and invested like another $300 in the watch (so $1,000 into it...) and they didn't/couldn't fix it. All they did was change the battery or something. But the chrono is just not going to ever work again properly.

I just don't see the point - that was a LOT of money for an average guy to spend on a watch in 1989 or so. That watch should have lasted me a lifetime and worked 100%. ESPECIALLY since I put about 50% (more or less) of it's cost back into it to repair/maintain it.

So - let me add to my never list - never: Invicta, Tag Heuer, and some phony watch called a Redline Boost- which is a product of a bunch of quacks from Florida that put out a bunch of brand names. The SWI Group or something. I practically sued them once - but at least with my consumer advocacy skills I managed to get a full refund and keep the watch.

I'm extraordinarily good at (I learned in my late 40's) using the Internet to get companies to squirm and refund my money when I am dissatisfied with a product. I've gotten AMAZING results from companies ranging from Chrysler to The North Face to The SWI Group, to..I can't remember.

I use very pointed "threats" to expose the hypocrisy and poor quality on several key Websites and I have had incredible success.

Sometimes it's a nice exchange. I actually had the nerve to write to Blundstone (a Tasmanian, Australia boot company) about my 1993 boots - and sent them photos. And they sent me a brand new pair of gorgeous boots. So sometimes I just take a nice approach - or rather I always start OUT nice but it usually devolves into the company being defensive or just not caring.

I've found that you can return or get repairs on just about anything for free if you 'press the right buttons.'

Companies don't want bad press - because on the Internet??? Everything is FOREVER.

Better to spend the pittance (in real cost to the company) that it cost to shut up the loud complaining guy than have stuff show up on Google for the next 100 years smile

That's why I'm studying CyberSecurity now.
