I have to vent after my experience tonight at a local AD who carries some decent watches. I actually was not on the hunt tonight but out n about with the wife, we drove by a store I like to frequent n asked her to pull over so I can get a glance at any new pieces they may of gotten in. They had some interesting watches by Ebel so I asked to try on a few pieces. The sales associate was very friendly and seemed like he took a general interest in watches and commented on my Explorer 2. He asked "is that the new Explorer 2?" I said yes and he asked to see it as he never seen one in person before. I said sure and as he was closely examining he said it looks a lot better in person and gave me some nice compliments. I noticed he had a Hublot Big Bang on. It looked like a nice looking watch, not something I would personally buy but I appreciated the aesthetics of it and gave him a compliment on his choice of watch. Then I could not believe my ears of what I heard next. In a slightly condescending tone he said "I like Rolex but since they only started making their own movements a little over a year ago, I can't see spending that much on one since it has the same movement as so many other brands" . I just looked at him like a deer in headlights. There was so much going on in my head at that time I almost had an overload. My wife seen my awe and before i could get out a word she quietly said "just let it go". I said thank you for letting me try on these watches, nice meeting you have a good night. I'm glad I took the wife's advise as there was no way I could of politely told him he could not be anymore further from the truth and where did he get this information from!? I dont want to be a jerk so even though I wanted to say something, i just walked away. Has anyone else had some really misinformed salespeople say some whacky things and what was your reaction when it happened? Do you correct these things nicely, rudely or just yes them and say its not worth your time? Please share your stories. Did I do the right thing or possibly do a disservice to him by not trying to explain to him?
