Thread: Anyone close to Paris or know anyone from there?

  1. #1

    Anyone close to Paris or know anyone from there?

    Admin*please remove if this is not allowed.

    I bought a watch off a company in Paris and the watch was on an alligator strap. The company doesn't ship what could be an "endangered" species (bullcrap) strap, or let a shipping company pick it up*from their premises. The only way this can be released is, by my authorization and released to an individual. So to the good people of RCW, is anyone close by to: 6 rue Duras, 75008 Paris, France?

    If so, can I send you FedEx/Courier labels and you just drop it off at the FedEx dropbox and charge me a small fee?

    I know I can buy a brand new band, but I want the band that came with the actual watch.. If that*makes sense.

    Anyways, I will leave a positive feedback here if this can be done. Thanks everyone!

    Not sure we have that many people in france?, none that I've heard of on here recently anyway.


    I think it's irritating when they won't ship cos of this sort of thing, I bought privately recently from France and it supposedly had an Alli strap on it , didn't cause any problems.

    In fact there's a Alligator strap company I bought from recently, they were in France and they ship without problems, I bought a quick release buckle from them but I know they sold genuine alligator straps too.

    Broker - I think we need a PIC in france too now

    It's very irritating, trust me! Just checking IWL as I haven't really had any luck anywhere else unfortunately. About to start adding random French people on Facebook haha.

    well we had a few french members but they have not been very active of late so guess not mate

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    Please note just cos someone's on a watch forum, it's no guarantee they are honest or can be trusted to do the deed.

    Do your homework/research is all I'm saying, look for feedback etc.

    (That's no disrespect shown to Laurent (who I don't know from Adam), just a general observation and advice)
