    Catalogs

    Who requests them? They're free from just about any manufacturer I've found. I request them all, just for fun. Muhle Glashutte came today:

    Always fun to get a catalog in the mail. Much less depressing than all the other stuff.

    Oh, man, I got catalogues going back to around 2001 when I started in the industry. They do take up a bit of space. Still, some of them, like IWC and Jaeger-Le Coultre are like art books.

    I find it odd how the manufacturers decide whether to send a catalog or not. Over the year I have requested a bunch of catalogs and probably have received about 30% of them. The last ones I "ordered" was last year and the JLC and Panerai showed up in less than a week, the other 4 I ordered never showed up.

    The one yesterday came in about two weeks. I have a Longines Catalog that took so long I forgot I had ordered it. Omega was the same. The Muhle Glashutte catalog also shipped from florida, which I found odd.

    Guess I am pretty lucky.... There are a number of boutiques around my office, and I simply walk in and request for one. . Never got turned down.

    Request one online - what's the worst that can happen? Your wife finds it, reads the attached price list and divorces you.

    When I got my first ALS catalogue, many years ago, I was a bit put down by the fact that if I'd save up for quite some time, I could just afford one of their buckles...
