Kicking tires in Knightsbridge at the Omega Boutique.
I finally got a chance to handle the Globemaster.
Wasn't crazy about it to be honest. It certainly is a handsome enough watch, and an achievement of a movement. But it felt so derivative on so man levels and the case was... well... nothings to get crazy about.
I did rather like the DeVille Tresor in white gold with textured silver dial.
But what was going on with that date window? Something out of alignment?
The caseback sure was lovely to look at.
My GMT making friends.
As long as it went to a boutique, it will be fine since they will send it to the main service center for you. I always tell people NOT to use an AD or gray to send it in for service if you want to be sure that it is serviced by a factory authorized service center. A friend of mine bought a Breitling chronograph from a big name AD that will remain nameless, and when it was due for a service he brought it there and asked them to send it in for service. When the watch was returned to him it had problems and he wasn't happy with the refinishing of the watch, so brought it back to the AD. They said they would send it back to the service center. When it came back it had some other problem and he wasn't happy with the re-do of the refinish so he called the Breitling service center directly. He discovered they had no record of the watch and that they never worked on it, so the AD either tried doing the work inhouse or sent it to a local place rather than sending it directly to the manufacturer's service center (to try and pocket the difference between a factory service and the local service guy). My friend complained to the AD but he ultimately solved the issue by trading it toward something else. However, he learned if you want factory service, bring it to a boutique or send it directly to the factory service center yourself. Cartier has pretty fast turn around times so you should have it back again pretty soon (if the holidays don't slow the service department down too much). Cheers!
Just got off the phone with the boutique - $650 for a full service including case/bracelet polish.
Came across this particular watch that intrigued me deeply.
And the cost was much less i was expecting. Could the brand be the reason? Because the material:rose gold case/gold bridge/4 sided sapphire crystal and design is impeccable.
I'm talking abt the corum 50th anniversary golden bridge. Ard the 12kish usd mark.
Can anyone give me their thoughts on this watch?
