I don't know. To this day, I have wondered what I could possibly have done to warrant such abusive service. Everywhere else we went in Paris treated us phenomenally well. Also, she was very careful with my wife's Reverso. Very, very odd.

Oh, then when I asked for a disposable polishing cloth to help get out the scratches, they refused unless I paid 60 euros for it.

ABP don't appreciate their straps being mounted on cheap watches.

The local and now defunct Lange dealer did something almost as bad when mine came back from routine servicing from the factory. I made them send it back at their cost to have the case refinished in Glaschutte. Shipping...I kid you not...was close to a $1K.

They would have treated a IWC repeater with respect.

I think ABP is overpriced. Oh well.

Holy fuck there is so much win in this thread. I would take all those skins and make them my wallpaper in my dungeon with my AL&C handcuffs on.

ABP is expensive. Informed about bespoke croc wallets last year, they have much choice in exotics though.

Why you asking? I live in Amsterdam.
India has good leather tanneries.
