So...seeing all these pics of people in the airport with Alzers makes me want one. Although it's a little more than I want to spend on (yet another lol!) suitcase. Ok that's a little bit of an understatement. But anyway. In the Roppongi Hills Tokyo store I saw a beautiful black Multicolore Alzer 55 or 60. Only 1,475,000 yen...over $12k USD. I joked about buying it and the SA said oh no it is special order only and takes 1 year to produce. That thing was seriously gorgeous, the vachetta even had a tan going. Then I picked it up. That thing was seriously heavy! With nothing inside! So here is my question, is an Alzer really practicable as a check-in item when flying? Or would you have to have it arranged in advance as heavy/oversized baggage? What do you think?
