Dear Forum members
Yesterday I arrived in Bonaire..
Stopping in Aruba and Curacao were I should have had a meeting with the local AD to pick up my new AT IW376710 with extra blue rubber diving strap...to go diving.... But unfortunately thursday last week I got a call of the local AD who was preparing my watch and put it on time about 24 hours ago and noticed that the watch was not keeping correct time. So this brand new watch was slow 10 minutes a day and the AD certainly did not want to deliver me a watch that was not keeping proper time, so I was informed, just before my leave. He called IWC and they would ship by fedex another piece. The shipment should arrive Monday the day of my arrival but there was no guarantee customs would release it in time for him to deliver it to me while in transit... But then again, I had a stop at curacao for four hours, so maybe he could deliver it before my departure to Bonaire.
The AD was very sorry about this and would like me to know if he could either have the watch delivered to me in Bonaire or when flying back. This in case he didn't receive it on time for me to take along. Once again he gave his sincere apologies but he was sure I'd understand that he want to deliver me a perfect working product.
But monday no watch....
But a mail from the AD that unfortunately Fedex routed the package to Sint Maarten..
Thuesday no watch but a tracking number, the watch is coming from Miami and now is in Sint Maarten on it's way to Curacao (and after that to Bonaire).
Tomorrow is wednesday... At this time I made three dives, luckely I have a suunto Zoop to accompany me. But please let tomorrow be the day......
Please hope with me that tomorrow I can post some pics.
