Interestingly (or not) I bought a luxury watch online this week.
I then went into a watch store on a whim the day after and the experience was noticeably night and day. The additional feel good factor of going into store was tangible. Without the 'experience' human interaction from fellow enthusiasts and perceived alignment of values to the brand, the buying of luxury goods will just become the same as going out to buy a loaf of bread....
No customer experience. No luxury brand.

I'm going with a Chopard or possibly Grand Seiko as a guess for Leonards new piece.
Oooo Chopard Eagle is a grail of mine.
I did consider a Grand Seiko also! This is close in nature to the GS as its a High Beat movement, helpful......?

what the hell is going on with this thread... a bit of order required.....
Im getting a friend to get me an iphone in NY this weekend..which one should I get...13.... probably all I need, but 14 not much more expensive.... 14 pro has a few bits and bobs and 3 lenses....

Ohhh sorry, I got confused, I thought I was NO LONGER on an Emira forum....
As usual, Mr Cohen's fault...... I mean @Leonard .... bloody watches..... Its bad enough having to listen to the crap that CS spout out..... last night saying 300 cars delivered UK this year... OMBG..... I had a MGBGT once.....

On the bright side, not that any of you watching really care.... I got an email from spanish dealer
confirming production for December and delivery (their words) maybe december or early January...

That gives me a big problem...quandary ..... oh well.... 0 world problems...

Now, watch yourselves... and get back to your time pieces in pieces in peace
I have a chopard pen if that counts me in to the discussion and a Colombian once tried to sell me a watch...worth about 30k, but I cant recall the make.... and I certainly cant recall having anywhere to go to where it haha

It was probably due to the official complaint I made.... haha..

speaking of which, and lets hope there is no need for a new thread on this, a house down the road has had police outside it since 9pm last night..
Its been illegally occupied... I knew there was something funny going on......
