Honestly. They do it however they want to. I’ve had a few of scenarios happen to me and have friends with different experiences.

Two years ago I went to get a Pepsi. And was told I couldn’t be allocated one. But was able to get a rootbeer. Two years later asked for Pepsi and was able to get one.

From a diff ad I was able to get a no date submariner on first request.

Friend walked to a different ad and got a Batman in 5 days.

My 4 year old formerly perfect dog has become a terror on walks. He never used to pull or lunge.. My main concern however is that now he is growling and lunging at every dog we see on walks. I dread walking him because I have to reroute him every time I see another dog. As a result, I'm extremely frustrated with him, and he is getting less exercise. Help.

Have a cheap automatic watch which cant hold its time. Guessing it’s a super cheap movement since no brand on the watch and bought overseas at a small market. Where can I take it to get it fixed?

My grandmother gave me her Rolex, which was purchased at a high-end department store in Asia about 15 years ago. She has tossed the original box and papers in downsizing (yes, crazy, but she reasoned that she’d never be reselling it anyway… we’ve had a chat about it but what’s done is done). Is there any way to get that information another way?

Hi folks, what are your entry watch recommendations for ladies? Please keep in mind that I have small wrists and I’m not interested in Nomos or Cartier for now; and preferably no quartz. Price range is flexible, ideally 2-5k but could go up to 7k if it’s a must have piece. I have my grail list but for the first watch I want something versatile, no particular style. Thanks
