This is just a rant. My mom said to me 30 minutes ago that she wanted to buy a watch for each of my grandpa's. Big problem - her flight to china is monday 6/24 morning. I wish she told me a few days ago because I could have easily gotten one on jomashop no problem whatsoever. But since that's not even possible anymore, I am stuck with Macy's and Tourneau. She is thinking of Tissot because that's a very well respected brand in China. I looked up the tissot AD's in my area and Macy's and Tourneau are the only two. So we will be going to the Garden state plaza in Paramus, NJ. The only good thing about this whole experience is that Macy's and Tourneau are in the same mall. And I'm definitely not going into the NYC Tourneau store. We don't want to deal with the traffic.
I do plan on looking at a few pre-owned rolex air kings. Maybe that will be the one redeeming factor of this entire situation. I HATE going to macy's and tourneau because thats where all the suckers go. Macy's stuff is garbage. The only time I've been to tourneau was on their website but I pass by the NYC store on the way to work and it's NICE. Oh well, full retail here we come......
I'll be wearing my hamilton jazzmaster viewmatic with shorts and a tshirt. I hope they will let me in the way I'll be dressed. Any tips or advice on how to be efficient at tourneau? I don't plan on haggling but I've done a forum search and I'll be trying to use the 10% off your next purchase thing. If Macy's and tourneau are the same price for the watches, I'm 100% going to tourneau. I'm getting fleeced either way so I'd rather have a tourneau bag than a macy's one :)
I need to spend $2k in 3 months for my amex gold card anyways so whatever. It is what it is. Maybe I'll take a look at PP's and JLC's while I'm there hmmm :)
