I am very happy it's back. It took a bit longer than expected as some part(s) had to come from Switzerland. But the nice thing is that the work was done in NYC-like Lange here. Cartier does a fantastic job.
Tha alligator was much slower so... Cartier service in the United States is phenomenal. Lange-level service, in quality and turn around time, because it stays in NYC. What Cartier has over Lange is a much lower cost for routine service, including replacement parts. On the other hand, Lange might do work gratis a little more often, beyond the warranty period. So, like I say to my compatriots: Buy Cartier! Buy Lange!
