Thought you'd like to know how sturdy your watches are. My husband lost his while gardening last fall, and yesterday, 5 months later, he found it while clearing out a flower bed. It had been buried under 2 feet of snow for a couple of months, as well as enduring a number of heavy rainstorms here in NJ. The band is a bit stiff, but it was still running perfectly - he only had to move it an hour ahead because of the time change. We were amazed! Thank you for making such excellent watches.
Swiss WatchesHighlights of My Life
Let me tell you, you just made my day! I just received my Wenger Swiss watch back from your consumer representative division and it is as good as new. This watch has tremendous sentimental value to me because as I look back at pictures from the highlights of my life over the last 16 years or so, I'm wearing my Wenger Swiss watch in many of them! I got it as a high school graduation present from my parents and wore it all throughout college and law school, wore it the day I got married, and the day my first son was born. Thank you for your attention to detail and your prompt service.
I received a 73113 Wenger Swiss watch from my son for Christmas in 2007. In April 2008 I was docking my boat when the watch band pin came out and my watch dropped into Table Rock lake under my boat dock in about 15 feet of water. I thought my watch was lost forever especially since the lake rose about 15 more feet that year. This year, 2009, the lake level subsided and in May I noticed a bright shiny object in the gravel on the bank in front of my dock. The sun just hit it perfectly to make it reflect brightly. I reached down and picked up the watch that I had lost over a year ago. The incredible thing is that it was still ticking and showed the correct time after more than a year under water. I am truly impressed with this watch after this experience.
One Clean Watch!
I have owned a Wenger Swiss Military 72091 for over a year and have been very happy with its quality, style, affordability, and performance. Recently, I had to put my watch into my pants pocket while at work due to an inspection. I went home and changed my clothes, all the while forgetting my Wenger Watch was in my pocket. My wife was collecting clothes to be washed and took my pants. Several hours later, she came by and showed me what she found in my pants. Removing clothes from the washer, she felt something in the pocket. She removed my watch and told me what she found. I felt disappointment as I was almost sure the watch was damaged, if not ruined. But my wife told me while the watch was wet, it was still working. Sure enough, she was right! I commend Wenger for making an affordable watch with the durability of a more expensive watch. This experience has made me a loyal Wenger watch owner!

What a Blast!
"…I must comment on the quality of my watch. The crystal didn't seem to be very strong as it failed when exposed to a 2,000-pound bomb delivered by a truck driven by a suicidal insurgent. Surprisingly this is the only item damaged on me after the blast except my nerves, which are self-healing. The watch has continued to give me accurate time regardless of the blast shock wave. The hole left in the parking lot was 9 feet deep and 20 feet across where the truck exploded, and I was standing 50 yards from it at the time. As you can see the watch is giving very accurate time and date for Baghdad, Iraq. Why would I want to buy a new watch when I have one that can take a 2,000-pound bomb blast?…"
