How did you order the Breitling catalog?

With some difficulty....wanted me to pay $25 'postage and handling so I told them they'd just helped me narrow my search to IWC, Omega and Panerai.......that seemed to change their mind and qualify me for a $25 discount on their 'postage and handling'

Thanks to this post, I contacted IWC and asked for an English catalog to be sent to the Ginza boutique... picked it up and talked about watches with the saleslady there -- it was a lot of fun! She let me try on the Ginza-only watch (special grey dial and Ginza caseback), which was a bit out of my league but very nice.

 

Just for kicks, I made the rounds, going to Omega, A Lange & Sohne, and AP.

 

Omega didn't really seem to have their shit together; the sales people didn't know about the ceramic deep black GMT, they didn't know where the English catalogs were, and they didn't really seem interested in me.

 

A Lange & Sohne was FANTASTIC; the saleswoman showed me a lot of watches, we talked about complications, she told me about a watch they're going to show at Baselworld 2017, great service, comparable to IWC.

 

The AP store was terrible. If I ever buy a gen in Tokyo, I will avoid AP solely because of how today was. I walked in and five of the salespeople in an empty store just stared at me; nobody greeted me or made any move to. When I finally went to the counter to ask the woman about a catalog, she barely talked to me. I asked about the blue dial 15400 and she said she'd never heard of it. I asked about the 15400s and she sighed before pointing to a display case on the wall. Terrible service.

 

I went in wanting to buy a strap, so before I gave up, I asked her if they sold straps for the AP Diver; she said she didn't know, but the people at the service counter would know -- unfortunately, the service counter (on the fourth floor) was closed and will not be open again til the 4th.

 

In terms of catalogs, I'd rank them IWC (hardcover, ribbon bookmark), A. Lange & Sohne (large hardcover), Omega (gold-embossed softcover with a very thick cover), AP (softcover in a thin slipcover like you'd find on a hardcover).

 

Same order for service.

 

In conclusion, IWC definitely seems WAY more interested in its customers. This is only the second time I've been to that boutique, but both times I had excellent service.

For a Rolex cat I walked into my local AD wearing my DSSD (you know super rep) and I enquired about a daytona (that I got to try on :Drinking2: ). We talked for a few minutes about the watch and I got his card asked for a catalog and he gave me a nice 100 page one and a mini 20 page. I'm not sure if they give this to whoever but I was dressed in slacks and a nice shirt so that might of helped.

nice sharing!!
