Price & Availability on Watch Parts:(P & A's) Suggestions on Do's & Don'ts
Price & Availablility's on Watch Parts is one of those touchy issues for watch material houses. On one hand,Twin City Supply welcomes the opportunity to help you, & gain your trust, as you become another satisfied customer. On the other hand, the time & effort spent finding a part for you is wasted if you are just shopping around for the best price & have little or no intention of ordering said part. In general, we welcome your inquiries, & will gladly sell you the part as long as you follow a couple of suggestions. 1) we prefer you fax in your request to us at 800-328-6001, & then give us a couple hours to check for you. You may call in if you like, but do not demand we check immediately while you wait on the line. 2) We tend to keep (and find) those really hard to find parts for our regular customer base. They appreciate it, thats why they are regular customers. Sure, we will sell you a part, but we also want to sell you other items also. If your regular supplier can't find parts for you, then why are you sticking with them? We want your watch battery business, your material orders for stems & crowns, crystals, gaskets, & cleaning solutions. What we won't do is sell you one part a year. Carrying accounts on our books who do not buy is expensive. Get to know us. Call us. Give us orders once in awhile. We have experienced personell who will share their expertise with you, & find what you need, as long as you respect that we sell other items besides hard to find parts. Catalogs are available and we are adding information onto the website all the time. let our 80 + years of material expertise help you!
