How you feel if the Patek Salon told you...

 
 By: kolosstt : December 20th, 2019-07:17
... that they will not put you on the waiting list.



Need to rethink... Hagwe, kolosstt

I feel very good! ;) [nt]

I think it's ok, I prefer that sincerity than a pleasant lie.

Don't fool yourself, there is no such thing as a waiting list.  If you have a good relation with your AD, then they will have you on mind, that's all. smile 

May I know which model you want? 



Vte 

no probleem and get something else, besides it's not their fault

An AD I know has 200 people on the list for a 5711 blue
After 20 they could have said the same to every customer cause when they only get 2 or 3 per year ... being nr 78 on the list is exactly they same as they tell you they don't want to put you on the lis anymore.

Friend tried to get a Journe CB, 2 times the same answer from 2 differentiations tboutiques. Sorry sit but since the list exceeded 7 years we closed the list

Yes, that was the mechanics...

List too long that there is no sense in making it longer.

My feelings would depend on which...

reference(s) you asked for and what you purchased from them previously

+1, precisely my thought ;-) [nt]

I buy my Pateks from an AD outside London where I seem to be lucky with allocation. The boutiques normally have a long waiting list, many of whom may be regular customers or celebrities so I personally prefer the more personal service I receive from my AD.

Stop wasting time with people who don't want your money

You can spend it on others who will appreciate your custom.

Let me find those with the right offering.

Well said... Thank you...

Salon or an AD?

Two different things, but even for a Salon I heard last week a salesperson telling new client he needs to buy something else before he can get Nautilus/Aquanaut - no use to try and swim against the tide, people will move to other watches in the end and the demand should go down.

Salon

And actually they rold me that they prefer customers that buy the entire collection.
Hence I cannot and actually dont want their entire collection. smile

Many other beautiful fish in the sea... [nt]

It’s all going to be OK.

They were honest with you and that is GREAT. 
You can now deal with the information they gave you and proceed accordingly. Many times in life I have been left “hanging “ by people who could not tell me the truth. 
That’s terrible. The A.D. you are dealing with has actually done you a service, and are being respectful of your time and intelligence. 

100% agree with this! [nt]

PP list

 
 By: pmh6000 : December 20th, 2019-10:58
Most waiting lists are in the mind of the AD. He or she was being honest with you. 

A waiting list that is never written or has an order...

 
 By: kolosstt : December 20th, 2019-15:08
... cause the mind is free. :/

It's the man that makes the watch and not the other way around...

Go be awesome and wear something else proudly!  I would suggest suggest perhaps either a VC or a Lange.  

At least they were candid. May I ask which model? I would go for a Lange or Laurent Ferrier + a Rolex to down my sorrows. Plus bottle of Bordeaux :)) [nt]

True...

 
 By: kolosstt : December 20th, 2019-15:05
I went for a bottle of sparkling French and feels better. smile
However, even the popular Rolex will put you on a long waiting list.

Get a different Patek that is available and amazing like the 5905 or 5270. [nt]

I use the salon purely for a nice cup of coffee whilst the wife is

Shopping, or to choose watches before I order from my AD or to fix a bracelet or strap. Apart from the nice calligraphy on the CoO I like my AD
