Michael Friedberg Wrote:Of course, a free loaner is always welcome to any consumer. Some other brands, usually at higher price point for their least expensive watches, have done this with mixed results. The usual issues are:1. Cost. There is really no free lunch, and the cost of the loaner is built in, at least indirectly, to either the initial cost or the cost of service, not only for the loaner itself but relative to potential damage to the loaner.
Michael Friedberg Wrote:2. Returns. It's easy enough for someone who pops into a "local" boutique for service, but a much more complicated situation when done via post especially for those not near a dealer.
