Miss-placed apostrophe costs watch company £15,000

The watch world is a cruel one! The Newark on Trent based jewelers Andrew Michaels have been forced to shell out £15,000 to have 50 watches re made as they had a misplaced apostrophe on their watch face. D'oh!

As a watch collector I know the painstaking process creating a fine watch face takes so it must have been a pretty devastating discovery! 

The special edition watches were created to commemorate 50 veterans from the Princess Margaret’s Own Glasgow And Ayrshire Regiment - though the apostrophe was placed after the s on Margaret's.
