About 20 years ago, I was helping someone move at our place of employment. I had a watch on, with a metal strap. I picked something up and smacked my wrist on the edge of the cabinet and the metal watch hit my wrist and it bled kind hard. I still have a scar, not too bad, and I haven't worn a watch since then.

Once upon a time I had a Hamilton watch, but it wasn't electric. Nice watch.
