haha, agreed!

I've done everything short of throwing it up against a Wall to make it tick, the balance swings but no one is Home...no Service marks inside the Caseback.

One for the pro.

....then will they loosen the restraints on the straight jacket long enough for you to throw the watch?  They've allow me to take my hands out long enough for typing these comments, so I can relate....
