And a hidden camera to wear so you can capture the mood swings and change of heart that will no doubt be oh-so-obvious!A good friend of mine and fellow WUS'er recently told me of a time that he went into a Tourneau location in Manhattan wearing something that was less 'acceptable' than their usual stock (It may have been a Mido Multifort, but I stand to be corrected). Well, they apparently really gave him the nose-up treatment because of his watch. It didn't really leave anyone bent out of shape, as this is what I think we all expect from these types of shops.
I wish I could go in with my Seiko 5 in the hopes that they are rude, just so I can put on an ALS Dato and see how the mood changes.
The plan is flawless!
Now all I have to do is get me a Datograph...
Honestly, it wasn't really aimed at Tourneau in particular but as a stand-in for the majority of major watch boutiques, who employ people who don't really have a love for the product or even understand what it represents for their more dedicated clients. It's also a shot at people like us (me?) who take ourselves a little too seriously in that situation. Ron Swanson is a parody, remember (albeit an awesomely hilarious one)!Is this a slight at people working hard, for little money, to provide a service? Or self-appointed "WIS" experts?
No, the GS I referenced is +/- 5 sec per year.RE: the bulova story, it sounds like you're just picking on the guy... Btw the GS is actually +/-10 secs a year and there are four current models that use the 9F movement.
I think we all agree we know more than most sales personnel but to just go in looking for something to call them out on is a bit wrong. Maybe if I was plastered and didn't care I would but at the end of the day they're just trying to feed their family. Personally if that was my job I would learn everything possible but again it's just some guy/girl trying to make ends meet. I've said it before and I'll say it again, most ADs are looking for sales people that don't know much so that they get excited as much as the client over the "wrong" facts and close the sale and get the client out the door before he gets to "google it"
It was a Mido, you're correct. I think it all reflects on the salesperson, not necessarily the store.A good friend of mine and fellow WUS'er recently told me of a time that he went into a Tourneau location in Manhattan wearing something that was less 'acceptable' than their usual stock (It may have been a Mido Multifort, but I stand to be corrected).
