Anyone else? Who gives good freebies ?

The prop is one cool giveaway. I don't buy from ADs so I get nada. I suppose the swag is like alo Vera after the burn. Makes it feel just a little better I suppose.

When I bought my Breguet Marine the AD was out of stock of the particular reference so had to special order.
Promised 2-3 weeks ETA for the special order. Turned out to be closer to 6 weeks after paying several thousand dollars of holding deposit.
My AD pushed her distributor rep to include a gift.
Got this very nice leather bound case and a Breguet travel diary along with a hand-written letter from VP of sales from Swatch North America apologizing for the delay.
Obviously the waiting was excruciating because this was the first time I bought from this particular AD, but in the end I was impressed at how they keep the customer in mind despite trouble.
Even just a little gesture can sometimes turn a pissed-off customer into a repeat customer (I have now bought 3 watches from this shop now).

I bought my Tissot Heritage Navigator from an AD, and got a free 2-watch winder, and some other smaller stuff (cleaning kit, chocolate, notepad). I gave the winder to my wife as she finally has three automatics and was asking me how to keep them running so she didn't have to reset them when she wore them.

That's a pretty cool freebie.

I've gotten hats, leather care products, polishing cloths, Swiss Army Knives, and the like. I'd gladly trade them all in for something like that.

I've only ever received a bag to carry my watches home in. Clearly I'm shopping at the wrong stores.

I've had all kinds of small things, hats, keychains, various bottles of alcohol (odd given that I don't drink). The best so far is when Seiko gave me a watch last year. Not a Grand Seiko or anything like that of course, but still, a nice gesture.

Got an Alpina leather wallet and a model airplane when I purchased my Alpina Aviator Chrono. When I purchased my Omega PO 8500 xl , the AD threw in an Omega toilletry travel bag an an Omega folding knife. Would have gotten a hat too, but they did not have any left.
