    Both correct?

    I would like to ask native speakers of English.

    Are both of them correct?
    The watch was rather expensive, but it will last a long time.
    The watch was rather expensive, which will last a long time.

    Re: Both correct?

    The first is correct the second is not.

    However if you change the second to -

    The watch, which was rather expensive, will last a long time.

    you get an acceptable sentence.
