I can easily change the band myself, but that's not the point. She did come through with a 12 pack of new white socks though, so it wasn't all bad. I'm growing accustomed to the new work watch. I'd prefer a white face because my eyes are deteriorating and it's easier for me to interpret quickly, and it's a little bigger which can be problematic when you sometimes end up elbow or shoulder deep into the nether regions of an airplane (I don't need a lecture about wearing jewelry, necklaces or watches at work).You should probably find someone that’s good at working on stuff to put that new watch band on the old watch.
Also, did she forget the socks?
Saved up and bought myself a Rolex Submariner automatic in 2003 when I got hired at my first airline job. I paid $3,900. Its now retailing for $12,000 plus tax.
I never wear it though as its a bit overkill for my current gig. I wear a iWatch. Love it.
