I was changing the watch strap on my 31-Day Retrograde watch (from the original black to a burgundy one) when I accidently broke off the very small tip to one of the springbars.
Is there anything special about a VC springbar that I should know about that would make sense for me to go into New York City and pick up an original from a VC dealer? Or can I go to my local jewelry store and pick up a replacement springbar? She believes the springbar is made from 18K rose gold to match the rest of the watch, but I don't believe gold would be very good for springbars.
My wife is very upset with me because I broke the original springbar and thinks I have reduced the watch's overall value. She does not believe me when I say it is a small issue. But she will only believe what the much more experienced members of the Hour Lounge have to say.
Your feedback is appreciated.
Best Regards, Dan
