Visiting Suit Supply Düsseldorf.







Today I went with my fellow blogger Spoozy of Kleidsam to the brand new and Germany's first Suit Supply store at Düsseldorf's Kö.

Amazing store! Great suits, great shirts, ties, shoes and everything.

Too bad, I wasn't allowed to take any pictures due to grand opening on next Tuesday (with press and stuff), so we just had a nice chat with the store manager and the entire crew.

Spoozy ordered a mtm db jacket and a dress shirt (ready in 8 weeks).

Measuring was pretty cool, as the tailor was so very skilled. So very much more then the guys at Dolzer...

I'm curious how the final result will fit!

My Rolex is back, but...



Dear readers,
today I went to Rolex in Cologne to pick up my Sub.
Well, I had to pay 577 Euros for the revision and I must say, my Sub looks flawless.

No scratches and bumps (fixed by laser technology) anymore . The metal shines like it did years before. Amazing job, I must say.

Rolex gave me a little booklet (explaining all steps of the revision) and a little travel case, which will be quite helpful.

BUT:
I'm a perfectionist. I like symmetry.
So when I took a closer look at the triplock crown, I realised that it was tilted. It used to point at 12 o'clock and now it points at 2 o'clock. Doesn't matter, you think?

To me it does. For me, it's not perfect anymore. Ok, it glistens, but that's not enough.

I was asking the mechanic for the reasons and he told me there's no way to adjust the crown the way it was. Some technical reasons, screws, blabla, what ever...

So back at home I studied the booklet and noticed one sentence on the first page, saying something like "Rolex ensures that every Oyster leaving their workshops will have its original functional and aesthetic features".

Well guys, we put men on the moon, but we're not able to adjust that nasty triplock crown???

On Monday I'll call mechanics again. If they'll tell me the old story again, I'll write a letter to the managing director to learn about his idea of quality standards.

Am I crazy?


Back at my wrist.


The crown is tilted. It used to be at 12 o'clock. Now it's at 2 o'clock.
This is not what I've expected.


Travel case. Nice!

This won't be my last post about my Sub!

I want to see more of that!
