Back from the spa πŸ›

Jul 05, 2024,05:14 AM

As some of you might remember I was getting increasingly vexed with dust and lint accumulating under the crystal of the Cartier Drive Extra Flat and decided to follow the advice of one of the fellow members and take it to Cartier to sort. 

The lady at the boutique was quite non-plused herself but all was handled as expected. She clearly declared it a warranty case and while having a watch sorted with the brand still has turnaround times to put a nuclear submarine refit to shame, at least there was active communication throughout. 

I have to say I was at the end positively surprised (expectations with the large brands being low I guess). At least the person handing me the watch back knew exactly what was done and why, offered some additional perks and it made for a nice, if rather lengthy experience. 

So here it is, back on the original strap for a change, clean and immaculate again πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Thoroughly enjoy it and the thinness makes it a very comfortable wear. Lint and dust free it’s nicer still πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ»

I had a brain freeze and thought it was my watch πŸ˜€ Congrats on getting it back, mine has been bringing me much joy, actually wearing it today. Mandatory morning commute shot: ...  

Wonderful shot there!

Good to hear your experience dealing with Cartier. The last time I took a watch back to them I received a good service and a satisfactory outcome. The big question is…. Which strap will you put on it ? πŸ˜‰

Now that question will have to wait a little bit 😁

As it has not made the cut as pool watch for the holidays, so next wear in probably three weeks at the earliest 😁

Have read many less than complimentary stories…

It’s a lovely watch and too bad they took it out of the catalog already πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

I suppose some stocks may still be available πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ»
