SoCalJD Wrote:A GTG sounds fun, but in the event our schedules don't match up for one, if/when you go to the boutique, call ahead and ask for Eduardo to see if he's in; I purchased the AMG strap/deployant along with my Galapagos from him and he's quite helpful! Just tell him Jerry sent you.

Straps and other accessories are a hit and miss at this boutique. I had to pre-order in advance when I needed them. The last two times I was there they only had IWC catalogs in Chinese! So best to call ahead.Ray
SoCalJD Wrote:Oh, wow, that's surprising news to me as I visited the boutique quite a few times from April into early May and Eduardo was still there! In fact, we last chatted through email in mid-May. In any event, all the best in his future endeavors as he's a really nice guy to chat with and quick to help. He sent me a huge, round IWC candle accompanied with a thank you note shortly after I purchased the Galapagos from him; it was a nice gesture and frankly, I didn't even know IWC had its own candles, haha.Ray, I noticed in your post about the SCP Boutique event that there's a different manager now. Back in January when I was there to pick up a blue Aquatimer strap, Michael Jones helped me out and he was the boutique manager then.
andy stevens Wrote:Ray...would be great to meet you at SCB or even BHB. Understand Hoa left BH and headed for Bal Harbor. Another person who can assist us Forumers at the SCB is Lindsay. She worked closely with Eduardo and has extensive knowledge of the IWC collections.
