Chapter 10 | I just want to be a salted fish quietly

Overseas series!

Wang Lan drove the BMW MINI and drove through the traffic, and soon came to Jing’an Weihai Road.

Jing’an Weihai Road is the most prosperous commercial street in Shanghai. Even under the scorching heat of the sun, people still come and go on the street, and there is a constant flow of people.

Wang Lan get out of her car and asked with a smile, “Lin Xian, what watch are you buying?”

She is eager to know how Lin Xian would lie at this time.

Lin Xian smiled and pointed to the store in front of him and said, “That’s the store.” He took the lead and walked away.

In addition to the Vacheron Constantin, there are several adjoining watch stores along the street such as the Audemars Piguet, IWC, and Jaeger LeCoultre.

But Wang Lan is sure that no matter which store it is, the prices of the watches are not cheap. The entry-level watches of Jaeger LeCoultre and IWC start at least 20,000 to 30,000.

Yan Xiaoman doesn’t understand watches at all, and she doesn’t like shopping that much.

“It’s too hot outside. Let’s go in.”

Lin Xian turned his head walked towards the Vacheron Constantin store under Wang Lan’s surprised gaze.

There are many other top watch brands, in fact, like Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Blancpain, and so on.

The reason why Lin Xian chose Vacheron Constantin is purely because his eyes told him so.

Vacheron Constantin is worthy of being an international top-level brand of watch. The store covers an area of more than 2,000 sqm. The decoration and style are very simple with only a string of English alphabet signs, but gives people a sense of inexplicable luxurious feeling.

After the three of them walked into the store, the air from the air-conditioning unit suddenly hit their faces.

At the same time, a woman in black professional attire walked towards them.

“Good noon to this gentleman and two beautiful ladies. My name is Sherry. What can I do for you?”

Sherry seems to be in her thirties and her features are ordinary but the whole person is okay. She had faint skin, and her long hair is coiled. She looked like a generous person which makes people feel really good.

Lin Xian smiled and said, “Hello. I want to choose and buy a watch in your store.”

Although Lin Xian was not wearing a famous brand, the smile on Sherry’s face has not reduced even by half.

Not only because Vacheron Constantin has strict training for their employees, but also because there are a lot of wealthy people in Shanghai.

Those wealthy people can line up all the way from here to the Huangpu River.

This is not exaggerated since this is Shanghai.

In addition, there are only a few ordinary people who dare enter the Vacheron Constantin flagship store.

“Mr… What’s your last name?” Sherry asked while keeping her smile.

“My surname is Lin.”

“Okay, Mr. Lin. The three of you can sit here for a while.”

Instead of introducing the watches right away, Sherry led the three of them to the sofa and asked them to sit on the sofa in the reception area, and asked: “What do the three of you want to drink?”

“A glass of ice water will do.” Lin Xian replied.

“Two cups of black tea for us.” Yan Xiaoman said, looking at the store environment with much interest.

Soon, Sherry brought a cup of ice water and two cups of black tea.

Yan Xiaoman took a sip of the tea and was pleasantly surprised: “Wow, the black tea in this shop tastes pretty good.”

Wang Lan whispered secretly and said: “A store that sells a watch for tens of millions better serve tea this good!”

To be honest, at this point, she began to struggle in her thoughts.

Originally, she thought that Lin Xian was just pretending, but with his indifferent expression, it seems that he really went here to buy a watch.

“You like it?” Sherry smiled and said: “I don’t know if Mr. Lin has a preferred watch model?”

Lin Xian shook his head and said: “No I don’t have. Please recommend some models!”

Sherry nodded and after some pondering, she said. “At Mr. Lin’s age, I don’t recommend formal watches because they are too meticulous and solemn, which is not in line with Mr. Lin’s current style. If I guess it right, Mr. Lin should still be in college. Men at this phase of their lives represent youth, always yearning for adventure, and full of excitement. So, I recommend for you a sports watch.”

Sherry is worthy of being an employee of the flagship store. She speaks with much eloquence and is a good judge of character.

After pausing for a second, Sherry continued: “Speaking of sports watches, we recommend our Vacheron Constantin Overseas series. It is without exaggeration to say that the Overseas series is tailored for men like Mr. Lin’s age. It fits your temperament perfectly.”

“Can I take a look?” Lin Xian asked.

“Of course, you can all come with me!” Sherry smiled slightly.

Before coming to the showroom, Sherry took out three watches and introduced them in sequence. “Mr. Lin, please take a look. This is our Vacheron Constantin Overseas series.”

The moment the three watches were presented to Lin Xian, he immediately took and held one of them. He was attracted to that one watch and ignored the other two.

The case of the watch is silver-white throughout, but the dial is royal blue like a calm lake, looking so elegant. But its shape gives people a kind of impact, like that of a turbulent ocean.

The strange but perfect combination captured Lin Xian’s attention in an instant.

Seeing Lin Xian holding a watch in his hand, Sherry introduces: “The model of this watch is 7900V/11…”

Lin Xian waved his hand and interrupted: “No need for introduction, how much is it?”

In fact, the configuration of top-level watches is almost the same, and the cost does not differ much even those of the other top-level brands. Lin Xian doesn’t know much about watches even if Sherry introduces it, he wouldn’t understand.

The most important thing for him is that he likes it. That’s enough.

So Lin Xian asked the price directly, and if the price is right, he would buy it directly!

Sherry was taken aback for a moment: “Uh…”

Then she said hurriedly: “The current price of this watch is 224,000.”


Hearing the price, Wang Lan is not so surprised. After all, she has an idea of the prices of top-of-the-line watches.

But Yan Xiaoman doesn’t know much about it at all and so was shocked immediately.

In her mind, she thought that the watch costs only a few hundred to a thousand yuan at most. Suddenly, there is this watch that costs more than 200,000 yuan? It made her think that the price is a little unacceptable for a while.

However, Lin Xian’s next words shocked her even more.

“Okay, I will buy it!”

Lin Xian took out his bank card from his wallet and handed it over.

There is only 230,000 on his bank card. If it were more expensive, he really can’t afford it.

Sherry’s smile at this moment became even more wide.

After being with the Vacheron Constantin flagship store for so many years, she has only met two to three bold customers just like Lin Xian.

“Mr. Lin, please pay here.”

Lin Xian followed Sherry to make the payment and at the same time began to look into the system.


[You spent 224,000 yuan, Do you want to use the [Critical Consumption Rebate Card? ]]


Without hesitation, he just confirmed it.

[ You have successfully used the [Critical Consumption Rebate Card], and the rebate will be issued after you complete the consumption!]

It seems that this system is very prudent and won’t give him any chance to exploit loopholes.
