Response to Is this a normal business practice done by Patek in Asia?
I believe that there are two ways how an AD get "hot models" from the distributor...
1. The AD "order" (i.e. bought) "enough" slow-moving models from the distributor, then the distributor "grant" the AD few pieces of "hot models" to "compensate".
2. The AD "order" the hot models from the distributor (for its VIP client). As the distributor, in general, prefer using the first "method" (as it can move the slow-moving models) to distribute the hot models, they are setting up a lot of "obstacle" for the clients who want to get the hot models by means of "ordering"
Don't be upset (even I hate it personally).... it is part of the game.
p.s. The above is also true if you replace the word "distributor" with "AD".... and "AD" with "end user". If you cannot go with "method 1", it may means that the AD does not think that you have bought "enough" "slow-moving" models from them...
