PP Gift

 By: watch-fan : June 14th, 2019-16:05
There are many PP gifts. What is the best gift that you received from your AD? Could you show us your gifts? For me, I like this watch box the most. Good quailty box. The box provides good protection for my watches. It is very useful than other gifts that...  

With that stunning rare handcraft/limited edition collection, all that comes your way is fully deserved!😀

I would be very careful if I am using a tool to do something on a watch.

Everyone learns from experience. I only change my leather strap. PP watch is expensive. I prefer hand over my watch to PP service center.

are you keeping your watch toolkit at your workplace

I spoted eight Patek gifts in your post: "You never pay for a Patek." is the applicable marketing slogan here.

 By: COUNT DE MONET : June 14th, 2019-23:00
To me seven watches in your display are gifts. O.k., you have paid for them but the likelyhod to get more than you paid for them is big.

I love all my limited edition watches.

Hope my daughter will not sell them in the future.

Good luck.

Bank will not pay you if something wrong with your watch. I put my watches in many different locations. I feel more safe n this way.

I use the box as a display box more than storage box.

 By: watch-fan : June 26th, 2019-10:21
Normally, I put my watches in the paper box before I put them into safety box.

Different way to put your watches on the table

No. I am only interested in limited edition. That is why my AD get headache about me. For example, I know many collectors like 5711, but I never ask for it. Until recently I got 5711 from my AD because I am curious why many collectors like it. I still pre...

How loyal to an AD ? It depends on how nice he treats you. My 5131R warranty paper had been hold for 2 years. Now I finally receive my paper, but I still not receive my 5131R document and leather cover for the document. I have no idea why my AD does not s...

Of course I have a main AD, and we are also very good friends, but I can buy at other ADs if I like a specific piece (e.g., the AD where I recently bought the 5131P was a new one for me). I just think it's good for both parties in this type of relationshi... 

In UK bit more different. The papers are

Held by Rhone not the AD. The watches are by Rhone not the AD. So even if you went to multiple dealers the request would still go through Rhone. I may be speaking out of turn but Rhone discourages multiple AD and encourages loyalty. Recently 2 forum memb... 

Thank you for your explanation.

 By: watch-fan : June 17th, 2019-02:20
I understand Rhone hold the paper for two years, but there is no reason to hold my 5131R document and without an explanation. I always be a loyal customer and good customer. I am upset without receiving the document.

Yes it was extremely emotional when it first occured with

 By: Patekphilippecollector : June 17th, 2019-08:13
Both views. I actually used it as a positive an offered Rhone to keep my papers for 5 years on 5131P. That way they could see I had no intention of flipping the watch and it gave them comfort that it was finding the correct t home.

Thanks for the clarification, I never dealt with Rhone but would have never expected they'll hold up the documents of a watch that's been regularly purchased...

 By: FabR : June 17th, 2019-03:29
I can understand their intent to discourage "flippers" from getting certain pieces, but I just find a similar practice unacceptable. In Italy the distribution begins with Patek Italia in Milano, so in a sense it's also "centralized", since Milano then ess... 

I actually may have misled a bit...

 By: Patekphilippecollector : June 17th, 2019-04:40
Its Rhone policy that the papers are held on 5131's for a period if 2 years. I didnt think to ask if AD or Rhone kept them. I just thought a Pepsi and Batman and both warranty cards were retail ed by the AD

Thanks, though personally I don’t see much of a difference if it’s Rhone itself or an AD to enforce this policy dictated by Rhône..

 By: FabR : June 17th, 2019-05:50
Geneva should probably establish a uniform policy across all markets, and I hope that keeping or seizing documents belonging to the most valued customers won’t be part of it..😉

Agree with you

 By: watch-fan : June 17th, 2019-14:49
PP should establish a uniform policy. I do not mind PP holds my paper, but not my document. How much loyalty that I have to show in order to earn their trust? This discourage me to buy PP watch if my AD does not know what kind of customer I am.

Everyone is treated the same by Rhone.

 By: russell996 : June 17th, 2019-14:53
First time buyer or big collector. 👍

Could you explain why my AD does not send me the document if Rhone treats everyone the same?

 By: watch-fan : June 17th, 2019-20:35
Do you know how can I contact with Rhone? perhaps I just write an email to PP to ask why my AD treats me this way. The funny is my AD always said we are good friends. recently I bought 6104/1G from him? He also ask Do I interested to buy 6104P? He just do...  

Brian, I don’t understand.

 By: russell996 : June 17th, 2019-22:44
You have an excellent relationship with Jamie, speak to him and ask him? I think you said you had received your‘Certificate of Authenticity’ - what else are Rhone holding? That is all they hold and even then they give you a photocopy of it.

I do not understand either.

 By: watch-fan : June 17th, 2019-23:22
I do not like to complain, but I already send three email and polite asking him I do not receive the document. He just does not want to answer me. Sometimes, I ask for price list. He just do not to give it to me. Thank you for helping me to solve the prob... 

That would be precisely my problem with this policy — the distrust that it so overtly implies.

 By: FabR : June 17th, 2019-15:47
I honestly can’t tell you what I’d be doing with absolute certainty since I haven’t found myself in in a similar situation here with an AD or distributor, but they certainly do make it harder to buy under such unfriendly conditions😉

Thank you for your information.

As simple as that. [nt]

 By: amanico : June 17th, 2019-14:52

I'm not familiar with your AD, but this obviously sounds like an unpleasant situation. Perhaps just a chat on the phone, or even a visit when you are in the area, will help clear up any possible misunderstanding? :-)

 By: FabR : June 17th, 2019-03:34
Otherwise, as a last resort contacting Rhone and having a chat with them should help. There might be bigger customers than you (this is always the case with anybody!), but you are certainly a top flight Patek collection and customer of that AD, so I belie...
