I like a certain style of watch, but the company that made them dropped that style around 2005. A few other manufacturers make similar models, but they're not quite right. One company makes several models that are spot on copies (larger, since wrist clocks have been popular for so long). They're made, or at least assembled, in the USA in a city desperate for industry & jobs. They offer a lifetime warranty on their metal body watches. BUT the customer pays shipping to the company (not uncommon) AND prepays a nonrefundable $25.00 fee. Say what? Doesn't that pretty much mean the customer is paying for the repair? I'm pretty sure the company doesn't pay their repair techs an outrageous hourly rate. I should mention the style I like runs around $450.00 best price for the basic model. I'm intentionally not giving the company any free advertising.
