This whole Cartier mindset is reminding me of Mont Blanc and their very recent change to in-house movements.
Speaking of Patek, I acquired a vintage one recently that dates back to the 30s. It is actually in Geneva for a full restoration. When I asked how long it'll take, the guy over at Henri Stern NYC told me "umm.. less than a year" lol...
