To repair or not to repair — that is the question.
Your watch was ticking this morning — but now it's stopped. Maybe it's new, or perhaps it's vintage. Perhaps you haven't serviced it in 5-10 years, or at all for that matter. Maybe you just dropped it and broke the glass. Whatever the reason, one thing is for sure: it needs repair.
So, what do you do — Throw it to the bin and join our throw-away society? Or do you go to the trouble of having it repaired? That is the question.
Thankfully you made the time to find Repairs by Post and go to the trouble of sending your watch in for an assessment. By now, I'm guessing you located the bottom line on your watch repair estimate, and immediately googled a replacement cost in horror — I know, repairs can be expensive, especially when some new items look cheap.
So we are no further ahead, to repair or not to repair?
If I break my mouse, I replace it. If I drop my coffee cup, I get a new one — mine's a cardboard Starbucks. If my dog gets sick — now there's a thing. But seriously, in today's society, we throw away more than ever before. In America alone, the yanks toss 728,000 tons of garbage, daily.
If you're like me, your watch is more than just a throw-away everyday item. Maybe it's expensive and represents an achievement, or perhaps it was past down to you by a parent. Maybe it was a gift, or perhaps it holds memories of good times with friends, loved ones and time that past.
A watch is a mans best freind, after-all
For me, it's simple. My watch is like my Dog. He is my trusted friend, and he has been on my wrist through the good days, the bad days, happy days and one or two sad days — just one or two.
On a practical note, one thing is for sure. We do live in a quick-to-buy throw-away society. Suppose you decide to repair your timepiece know this; Repairs by Post endeavour to return your watch in "as good as new" condition when possible. A 12/24 month guarantee will cover your timepiece. And your repaired watch may represent a more trusty partner than a cheaper new option.
