  1. Breitling
    I have just sent in my old Chronomat B13050 to Breitling UK for a service. There is some water damage and because they no longer have parts to repair the movement it needs to be upgraded from a 17 to a 25 jewel movement at my expense (GBP 1250 = USD 1500). It seems unreasonable to have to pay...
  2. STOWA
    you can send a Stowa to HQ to be Serviced, if you bring a Stowa to an indepent Watch maker can he buy all the replacement parts from Stowa, also if bigger parts would be needed. would like to hear you're recommendations with the new purchase of Stowa and the departure of Jürg Schauer
  3. Watchmaking
    Hi All, I am wondering if anyone has contact info to someone who might be able to service an EB 8021 movement? My watchmaker said he was unable to. From what I read online these movements weren’t made to last so would I be better off sourcing a new movement or are there enough spare parts...
  4. Grand Seiko
    As a Grand Seiko owner, I read this thread with interest when my SBGR253 (Caliber 9S65) suddenly started losing 15+s per day after previously keeping freakishly good time. The watch was still under warranty, so it made sense for me to take it to the Seiko Boutique in the CBD to get it serviced...
  5. Breitling
    After about 2.5 years of ownership, my SOH II has decided it's going to run about a minute to 2 minutes slow per day. I first noticed about a week ago, every morning when I put on my watch, it'd be about 6 seconds behind. This was annoying as the watch is supposed to be COSC certified. Over...
  6. Seiko
    Hello:) Seiko SPRIT AGS Black Dial Réf: 3M21-0A60 I just bought this watch in Chrono24 for cheap. It need services. The description mentions: #Condition rank: C incomplete (componements missing, non fonctionnal) #Runs/doesn’t fully charge #Secondery battery is worn out and need replacement...

    My Seamaster recently stopped running and I contacted Omega through their website and they agreed to send me a parcel for me to ship the watch back to them. When the parcel arrived, the service booklet was printed (badly) on A4 paper that was folded in half plus the Omega service form that was...
  8. Omega
    I recently sent for my 2011 Omega Seamaster Professional 300m Co-axial (ref. 21230412001002) off for a Service through an AD. Having Collected the watch I noticed that the bezel insert was misaligned, the luminous pip at 12 o’clock had been changed (and was now flush with the bezel) and the...

    I’ll say I’d be starting at ground zero, but thoughts on learning and the best way to get equipment for basic servicing of automatic and vintage movements?
  10. Rolex & Tudor
    Anyone know a good watchmaker in the Atlanta area that you'd trust to service a Submariner 1680? Thanks!

    Hello All, I'm fairly new to the community and looking for some advice. Most of my timepieces are newer and under manufacturer's warranty. A couple of weeks ago I purchased my first vintage watch. For a while now I've had my eye on the SPB-151 "Captain Willard". Instead of the SPB-151, an...
  12. Rolex & Tudor
    My grandfather gave me his Tudor Prince Oysterdate from aprox 1960. The watch seems to work fine for now, but it has been sitting in a drawer and not been serviced in years. I went to a Tudor/Rolex AD and spoke with the watchmaker. He told me that, because of the age of the watch, it's going to...

    I have a ~20 year old Rolex that is due a service (last serviced 9 years ago). However it’s running fine; in fact better than fine. It runs consistently +0.1 secs/day which in my mind is amazing accuracy for a mechanical watch. I’m concerned a service could make that worse. thoughts?
  14. Jaeger-LeCoultre
    Hello, I thought this may be a great place to get some information and advice regarding my beloved watch, a gift from my long late grandfather. This watch was given to me by my father about 20 years ago, and I only wear it for special occasions. It runs great, and is in really good shape. This...
  15. TAG Heuer
    I recently bought a 1996 TAG Heuer Carrera 1964 Re-Issue. I love the watch. I sold some cool watches to stretch my budget for it. It is my attainable grail achieved. I got a really good deal on this watch from a local jeweler. The prices these go for is usually way out of my price range...
  16. Jaeger-LeCoultre
    We know how many posts there are about the infamous JLC, Richemont RIS services. Though in the 2020 era lead time seem much more acceptable of around 4 weeks (not quoted though - 7 -9 weeks) turn around. I still feel a bit unsure with the older models 10 to 15 years+ of the memovox and master...

    Hi, I've had a Junghans Max Bill Automatic for nearly 4 years now, but the crown is stiff and there's sometimes a clicking sound when winding it. A watchmaker quoted me $360 to fully service it (doesn't include replacement parts if need be) - to me it's rather expensive. I don't have much...
  18. Rolex & Tudor
    Hi all, I wanted to get insight from more tenured owners than myself on this topic.. I bought my first Tudor yesterday, and within 12 hours of wearing it I noticed a very audible noise when I rotated my wrist. Basically, once the TV was off and no sound was muting it, it was evident. I took it...
  19. Grand Seiko
    Hi all, I'm looking to buy the "Autumn" SBGH273 as my first luxury piece, but wanted to ask about Grand Seiko service as it stands today. For context, I visited Watches of Switzerland NYC with my eyes on an Aqua Terra. After it trying out, I asked the sales rep for his opinion of Grand Seiko...

    I’m specifically speaking of Moebius 8000, the natural oil, being used on old pocket watches. They say that 8000 has a shelf life of 12 months, however, that’s seems awfully short, especially seeing as by the time you receive it, it’s already a few months old AND you’re using it on watches that...
