Similar but different!

Lately one could argue that there has been an overdose of collaborations, none more so that the Louis Erard Alain Silberstein watches which have a character of their own thanks to Silberstein's input but when one is promised a limited edition of 178 piece...  

Hi Jay

There had been little coverage on the Stephen Silver release last week except on Quill and Pad. I believe due to the limited coverage, the watches are still available so I hope you manage to source one (or two!)

Me too!

I have always been a fan of the Regulator but this time the only way of accessing one was to buy the box set so I thought why not?!

Aaaah, I see!

Thank you very much my friend!

It has become one of the few accessible limited editions as many tend to be sold out these days when announced.

I like these watches but I find the crown on mine ridiculously hard to operate

Which is in keeping with many original Silverstein watches (triangle, square, etc.) ...  

Agreed Mike!

I had the chrono monopusher from the original release and was ok with the winding crown but it lacked the feel of a proper crown.

Thank you Fabrizio!

I think the brand awareness for Louis Erard has improved since its collaborations with Vianney Halter and Alain Silberstein. Some brands are not so suited for collaborations as it may dilute the exclusitivity of the brand. Now we also see some brands work...

Thank you Patrick!

You probably shop at this jeweller all the time!

Actually I don't...

Back in 2015 or 2016, the jewelry store graciously invited me to an MB&F cocktail party and a seated dinner; then two hours prior to the start I got a phone call asking me if it was okay if I gave up my seat for the dinner and only come to the cocktail to... 

Patrick, I am lost for words!

I am shocked and horrified at anyone let alone you being treated in such a manner. The watch industry is not just about the product but also, the after sales service experience. To be honest, if I had known that you had this horrid experience, I would not... 

Good service is indeed very hard to come by...

A true rarity in this world. Your sought-after car story makes me want to move to Malaysia! Unfortunately, here in California, especially the Silicon Valley, there's so much money (a lot of it is very new money), and a younger/inexperienced clientele base... 

Patrick, you are a very patent and forgiving person

I would have written a letter of complain to the top management at Stephen Silver to tell them of your experience. Every member of staff in a company irrespective of their position represents the company they work for. Anything they say would reflect on t... 

I try!

 By: patrick_y : November 23rd, 2022-05:25
I'll follow your advice next time!

I believe the top management owner

of the company will be quite appalled at the service you received. You would be doing them a favour.

Thank you for your feedback!

I think they are lovely too. Most importantly the titanium case, NATO strap and the dimensions of the watches make them very wearable. Not quite a world class movement but one buys these watches for the dials and fun factor. The case construction is actua...
