I sent my FOLE back to Stowa for repair - the movement was defective.
Anyway, it now appears FedEx cannot locate the package. FedEx Germany is completely non-responsive after multiple attempts to get them to respond. It would be a mild undersatement to say I am growing increasingly frustrated with FedEx...
Viveca and Viktoria and others are helping to investigate the possibility it is just sitting somewhere in transit (Frankfurt last sighting according to the website) and will be delivered.
This is the first time since I've been shipping/receiving watches or, anything for that matter (25 years) where something's been lost/stolen or otherwise gone missing before its destination.
Other watches...okay, but for the FOLE to disappear into thin air with no explanation from FedEx - a rotten way to be introduced to lost items in transit.
Now I can only hope it will be found and delivered for repair. The claim dollars are secondary to my retrieving this fine timepiece. I can only hope it does not come to that!
