THE BIGGEST RIP-OFF EVER
So I'm strolling Madison Avenue on my lunch break today, and I see Tourneau Watches. I remember that the silver and black Tag Heuer on my wrist was purchased there about two years ago, and it could use a cleaning. (Spend way too much cash on a watch, you might as well keep it looking sharp right? Yes, I'm a watch snob and you can keep your filthy Casio adorned mitts off it.)
I always go into a situation like this with a "best case scenario" and a "deal breaker" threshold, reality usually lies somewhere in between. The best case in this case would be this, "Yes Mr. Romita, as a full service watch dealership, Tourneau offers complimentary cleanings for all of our timepieces. Can you come back in an hour to pick it up?"
Dealbreakage would begin at the costing $40 and/or losing my watch for more than 24hrs phase.
The Reality- Tourneau would gladly remove the specks of schmootz from my watch. By sending it back to Switzerland. For three months. For $500.
I don't think I've ever actually laughed directly in a person's face before. I'm going to leave my watch on in the shower next time instead.
