    The watch is made in a highly automated environment with super cheap labor. The repair is done by somebody earning a multitude of that labor. Not condoning this in the slightest, but I can understand the economics behind it.

      The economics behind it is that if they can make you buy a new one, they make more money than if you repair it.
