Swiss WatchesStill Tickin' After Two Decades
My Standard Issue Swiss watch turned 21-years old today. Over the years I've only needed to replace the leather band and battery a few times, but the watch continues to keep the precise time.

Swiss WatchesA Musician's Precious Gift
I would like to thank you for making a most durable watch. When my truck flipped onto its driver side during an accident my arm broke the window and was sliding on the pavement. My watch kept my hand off of the pavement. I received fifty stitches on my forearm but my hand was fine thanks to my watch. My watch is in perfect condition! By the way....I am a musician.

Swiss WatchesDrowned and Buried
I left my Wenger Swiss watch at home in 2005 when I evacuated for hurricane Katrina. I had 12 feet of water in my house. When we returned, my wife discovered my watch in some mud on the floor. It had been under water and mud for 2 weeks. It was still running. It only recently stopped running, and I am currently looking for a replacement battery. I also left my Rolex which was not running, and cost me $800 to repair.

Swiss Army KnivesJust in Time!
A cat gave birth in my backyard a few days ago to two kittens. The next morning when I checked on them, the mother had still not removed the cord and afterbirth from one of kittens, and the cord was now wrapped around its neck. It didn't seem to be tight enough to harm the kitten, thank goodness. I unwound the cord and used my Wenger Nomad's scissors to cut the cord, and remove it, and the afterbirth from the kitten. So far both kittens seem to be doing fine. Glad I had it in my pocket.

Swiss Army KnivesWorld War II Veteran
My stepfather, John McCall bought this knife in Switzerland in 1944 when he was serving in the US Army at the end of World War II. As you can see it is one of the older models with real wooden handles. He had sent it to Switzerland for repair once before some time in the early 1990s. A couple of years ago he passed away after a long battle with stomach cancer. He left me his knife, and after years of faithful service to him, it is a little wore for wear. I was wondering if you could refurbish it, as it has a lot of sentimental value. I am will to pay for it, if it is beyond what is covered by the standard warranty.
