I sure hope it has presence, for $165,000 =P

It is a beautiful piece though, I will be looking into them in the future for a new watch for myself.

LOL!! The become instant collectors especially the one you got. I'm not an expert in the brand as there are many fanatics out there (go to paneristi.com) but I do know the special editions if you can get them are worth it. Hell, use the Centurion concierge to get the hard to get boutique models only.

I plan to do that for the new released Radomir's set to come out this summer.

I made the Concierge track down a dealer, and find me the best price. They ranged from $180,000 - $165,000 and the dealer I went with was able to brinks it to my office for free, so I was quite happy to not worry about it sitting on my porch.

Another lesson to be learned from our longest standing Centurion member in here (if not the longest pretty damn near). I for one as one of the newest will have to find new ways to exploit their services!

If you shop at a "Nordstrom" or similar retailer and are unhappy with the customer service; contact American Express. Shut the store down for 3 - 4 hours for a private shopping experience you'll never forget.

Nordstrom really participates in that program?! My wife will love that. She and other mom's in my kid's private school are going for a weekend of shopping in Seattle. That stunt of closing the store for her would really make the other women go WTF?!!!

Hahaahahah what do I need to do? Just tell them I am not happy with the service???!

Call the Concierge and shut down the Bellevue store (Shutting down the Flagship in Seattle might not happen). It's fairly easy, tell them you want it shut down for a private shopping trip for __ hours, expect a personal shopper and you'll spend at least $20,000.
