It must be my European side but what you describe sounds like the ideal shopping experience to me since I much much prefer being left alone in stores and asking for help if need be. But I can see how you'd be left disappointed.

Also being well dressed shouldn't factor in too much, I feel I usually get the same service regardless of how I am dressed (outside of Barney's but then I know the SAs I would want to talk to anyways)

I as well prefer a short hello and maybe a little small talk but nothing more

I keep talking to this kid all the time, though, who's pretty insightful. What am I supposed to make of that?

Hah! In certain circumstances, you are absolutely right. And I often feel that way too. In this one, though, it seemed like such a great opportunity for engaging around a concept (theoretically) focused on introducing MTO to a customer base not as familiar with it, or who associated it with unapproachable price points or older, more trad-style offerings.

I also prefer people to do the bare minimum when I walk into a retail space, feels like less pressure. I hate when they pitch a sale or new product right as I enter and it feels so rehearsed, or when they ask like 5+ times if I need help. I'm a big boy, I can ask if I need to know something

I wish this were true. Shopping for watches in anything besides a suit is ffffuuuu.gif (unless you're wearing some next level watch).

Never heard of or experienced anything like at a watch shop.

Rabbit is dirt cheap because it's more or less a wear item with a finite lifespan. For $2k, Id take no fur (or synthetic) over rabbit. Unfortunately, there's not going to be much else at that price point.

I hate the gratuitous "That would look so great on you!" any time you even glance at an item.

Happened to me at two places, they kept steering me toward lower end watches etc. If you look in the watch thread in CM, it happens a lot, even to a guy who owns multiple Pateks when he went into a shop with a beater watch (Rolex even IIRC) while traveling.

In America all the times or?

I get the same service no matter what I wear.

Went into a small shop in Seattle, got "do you work in fashion?" And "you should model for us!" I would be flattered, but I keep getting these comments at different stores and I'm not that good looking. Starts to feel like the whole "that looks so good on you!"

My experiences were in America. Happens with cars too.

No offense, but since when are mens store models attractive? Runway models are the attractive ones.
