The Wristwatch from HELL!

So ...


I go to the Mall and I'm browsing for a new watch because my old watch was stolen. I stumble upon this beautifully crafted Guess watch and I want it. I buy it and it costs me around a hundred and forty dollars. Not bad because the watch is pretty nice.

I get home and I'm wearing my kick arse watch. I go bend my wrist to pick up a knife in my silverware drawer and I hear the snap of a gear (Assumption) and the pin shoots backwards and injects into my forearm and breaks skin.

I had to take the pin out with tweezers.


Should I sue? I still haven't taken it back yet because I'm thinking about what I should do.

Don't sue. Go into hiding since the KGB is clearly trying to kill you.

I wouldn't sue, it was an accident and you're apparently fine, just take it back and mention what happened. Than ask for a replacement watch or your money back.

Doesn't seem like a serious injury, if you had to have surgery to remove it I would have sued, but for now I'd go with Roland's advice.

No, you shouldn't sue.

It's your fault for spending ridiculous amounts of money on a time telling device, which you can get for $5.

$140, That would have bought a (cheap) hooker, man. ****ed up.

You have no case to sue the watch company. stick out tongue

Just do what I said, take it back and get a new watch or get your original $140 back.

It's not my fault. It's the companies fault for making a severely flawed product.

Ridiculous amounts of money? A hundred and forty dollars is not "Ridiculous amounts of money", my friend.

A gash in my arm is a case. I don't think I explained well enough.

The pin BROKE SKIN and INJECTED directly into my arm. I had to get my tweezers and remove it.


Think of a wooden splinter ... Except a long, silver pin instead.

Cry me a river, you got a metal splinter in your arm.

You're fine enough to type on a keyboard, your forearm is not damaged enough that you have to go to a hospital or consult a doctor, you didn't die or receive any type of poisoning from the product.

Just take the damn thing back, explain what happened and asked for a different model of the same watch or ask for your $140 back.

I'd prefer to cry you an ocean.

I did go to a doctor, actually. Naturally, I had to.

I had a huge gash in my arm and I'm currently wearing a large bandage for it and the possibility of infection is not a scarce possibility.

I am seriously contemplating suing Guess.

It was Silver, for the second time.

For a watch, I think it is.

I buy watches for 5 dollars, and they last for years.

But now, with cell phones, watches are a thing of the past.

I only buy expensive watches.
They never set, the battery doesn't need replacing within a month, and they're more stylish.

My old watch was over three hundred dollars. I got it for my eighteenth birthday and it lasted me over three years and then it got stolen.

Well, at least you didn't pay for it. That's the thing with owning expensive things, they always end up stolen. Or stabbing you in the arm.

Really though, if the gash on your arm is actually bad, which it sounds like it may be. I say go for it, sue. Some lady sued McDonalds for almost a million dollars because she spilt coffee on herself like a dumb wench.

You could probably make good money since it's actually their fault, and not just you being an idiot.

From your original post it sounded like a tiny SILVER splinter got injected in your arm, removed with tweezers and that was the end of your injury.

You may "possibly" get an infection? Since you've been to a doctor I assume you were given antibiotics since the skin was broken and a huge gash was in your arm, along with the bandage your chances of infection are slim to none.

You were treated by a doctor, and seem fine now. This injury did not cause you mental anguish, depending on the type of person you are, it may have caused you a small amount of physical anguish as well.

Sue if you want, but considering the facts you have told us, you would get very little in compensation.

What I'm saying is stop acting like you have suffered some horrible injury, take the faulty watch back, and ask for your money back or a new model of the watch you bought.
