Enough already

Postby tiktok » July 15th 2018, 3:15pm

Some of you surely remember the higher end Chinese Imperial that Juan, Allison and I were juggling a few years ago. About a year and a half ago the guy said he was building a great dive watch and taking orders. The guy is Singapore money so the early payment was simply to reserve one in gray or azure. Ltd run of 100 total. The company owner has a chat on FB where he posts progress on the watch and photos of his nation hopping. This was all fun and games until the watch did not meet several due days we are all sitting on our hands while the in crowd argues about rubberized straps or not.

My advise over the years.

Never pay for a watch that doesn't exist.

Common sense to me.

Business should be conducted in a business-like manner. As soon as these were ready to ship, they should have been shipped.

Also, what the Rewstar sez is true, and words to live by.

Reminds me of a certain story that a friend of mine told me recently. There's this excellent maker of watchmaking tools and workbenches that he knows, who has the unfortunate habit of starting a ton of projects at once, while forgetting to attend to the ongoing ones. Save for making tools and desks, he also started servicing watches a few years ago.
Only recently, in a Dutch forum, the guy was boasting about a new project of his. And there, one guy replied, "And what about my watch? I've sent it to you for a service months ago!"
Soon, more angry clients, numbering more than 20, started venting their anger. Some of them sent in their watches for a service in 2015, and still haven't received them back. My friend has ordered a custom tool for safely removing KIF shock devices (which - otherwise - can spring out and fly to the other end of the room) something like 18 months ago, and still hasn't received it.

While Maison Celadon makes the sort of Chinese watches that I'd like to have, I say fuck them in the ear. This is ridiculous of them. If they took the money, they're supposed to fucking deliver, not provide some bloody 3D renders.

The owner has got to be some kind of wealthy. His globe hopping g photos feature expensive clothes, young/smoking hot women well above his station and expensive hotwls, first class flights and so forth.

Must be good to be the King.

At least it comes with a warlet.

Having a bunch of Singapore money and finding happiness in Shanghai reminds me too much of Bernie Madoff who also enjoyed vast wealth and a stellar reputation.

If he's got watches and the money to ship them then why doesn't he?

Come to think of it if he's posting pictures of hawt Singapore and Shanghai babes, well, they can drain wealth in a manner that would have Bill Gates sleeping it off in a parking lot with his pants around his knees. Or so I've read somewhere.
And the fact I'm still living rent free in his head makes me grin and giggle.
