Can you please help my cousin get a Patek….

Nov 22, 2022,18:48 PM
 

My mom reaches out to me last night and says her best friend is trying to get a watch, can I help by talking to my AD?  I said sure I’ll see what I can do, knowing damn well that if they want a Patek, literally there is nothing I can do.


I speak to my moms friend and he says yes, his cousin is trying to get a Patek and he heard that I have “connections”.  Can I help?

Ofcourse the polite thing to do is say yes- I’ll call my AD and see what I can do.  Do you know which watch?

Yes he says.  He sent me several and really any of them will be fine.  

Please send me pictures I reply.

Here you go.  These are the watches the cousin has on his wish list and oh btw- can you please try to get me a good discount if possible.

Lol….no wonder I cannot get any of these…all because of you, your connections and your cousin($)…

The last one is easier and sure your cousin can get a discount from the 10-20x price hike, say maybe 20% may be possible 🤣

😂

If he has the means to buy a grandmaster chime than buying everything else on the grey market shouldn't be a big deal

Is this a joke?

He's definitely a man (?) of simple tastes

I guess a good discount is mandatory.

at least he didn't give you a deadline for delivery

such people expect not more than 2 months of wait!

Should definitely get a discount given that it is a bulk order!

And I would definitely add 5750!

Asking for discounts??

The polite thing to do in this scenario is to have the “cousin” reach out to any AD and see if he can get some answers to the difficulties of obtaining a Patek at list prices…never mind a “discount”?!? Some people do not understand and thinks those with “... 

Good one!

The others should be available to you as well. Luckily didn't ask for a Tiffany nautilus 🤣

Remember - simply Patek clients could not get the Tiffany nautilus, that was for Tiffany vips only..

So I am sure he has sent another cousin a separate list!

True

With connections to a patek and a Tiffany client the world is your oyster!

Perhaps you mean your

work cut out for you, Santa Claus 🎅! 😂 If he/she has been a good boy/girl, instead of the blue dial 6300, Santa should get this person the new one encrusted with diamonds 💎 💎!!

To be clear…

My mom was just being a mom she has no clue as to what goes on in the watch world. This is not my cousin. This is the cousin of my moms friend- A cousin I have never met nor have any clue who this person is. This is not a joke . It was a real request of m... 

;-))) Thanks again for sharing this, it has quickly turned into one of the funniest threads we've had in recent memory (at least among those not entirely based on emoticons ;-))

I'm officially inviting this cousin here to the Patek forum, so we can all get to know him --- and if he has as much sense of humor as I expect, in return I'll try to get him any Patek that he wants! ;-))))

With all due respect….

I have no desire to meet the cousin. In fact I’d probably punch him in the mouth for wasting my time. Lol

I bet this guy assumed that the economy was

Slowing and thought who has the free cash to buy such pieces 😂🤦‍♂️… let’s ask for a discount 😀. You were special enough to visit the Maison in Switzerland recently. Clearly your connected and your mom was being what every mom would do.. ... 

Excellent! :)
