service

    My very first automatic watch is almost five years old, and it is getting slow: almost half a minute too slow per 24 hours (-27.8 spd). Should I deliver it for its first service? I am not really bothered by it, but are there any other good reasons to order service?

    My Cartier Tank is losing time and I've been told by an independent watchmaker it needs a new circuit and service at a cost of £550...he originally quoted £750. Can anyone confirm if this sounds reasonable.

    My desire to own a Type 20 someday led me to pick up an homage Type 20 classic from Undone about a month ago. The watch was keeping time well but, I couldn't get the chronometer to work at all. The button would depress, but nothing would happen. They have a 14 day return policy, so I...

    I have a 6-year old 9S that has been recently losing time, and probably needs a service. I live in NY, and was thinking to drop it off at a GS boutique to send off for a service. However threads like these: Watch scratched up during service ...make me very hesitant. Is the GS NJ service center...

    Hey Everyone, I was looking to find a thread on for recommendations on places to take your timepiece to be repaired or serviced. I love in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and had to do some digging to find a reputable place to take my watches for repairs. Sandor Izsak - Edmonton, Alberta, Canada -...

    I got this Tradition 5.5 as a gift in 2019 and recently sent it to the Swatch Group in Miami for a battery replacement. This is my first Tissot and I did not expect this service quality from an entry-level brand. I got free case, cleaning cloth, paperwork, and my watch came quite clean. Well...

    Hello. I dropped my Stowa Flieger off at a jeweler to have it regulated since it was running out of spec. They didn’t really give me a timeline or a cost. 1. How long should this usually take? 2. How much should I expect to pay for this?

    Hello and thank you for taking the time to read. I am considering an online purchase which is priced well below (at least from the pics) a normal ask price but I am not sure about authenticity. I have purchased sight unseen in the past but as always - I bought the seller first. So, I...

    Hello all, The first automatic watch that I purchased and Hamilton Jazzmaster, is having issues working 24h+ after fully wound. The odd thing is, I did not wear this watch that much (average 2 days per week), having bought it 5y ago. It's original power resever of 38h, was a bit of a deception...
  10. TAG Heuer
    Has anyone sent a chrono to be serviced at AD? I found few negative experiences on this forum and one person even had to send it back twice to get it serviced which took 3-4months. Something I want to avoid if possible. Has anyone used Tag Heuer's mail in service before? How long did it take? Is...

    I purchased a used (~4 year old) Khaki Field Automatic 38mm with a H-10 caliber last year as my first mechanical watch and it keep time incredibly well (around -1 second per month!). Unfortunately, I pulled the crown out to change time on an airplane and the depressurization of the watch caused...

    Hi guys, need a little help. so I just bought a brand new Ingersoll IN6803 with a miyota cal. 9015 movement for 100$. (u can read a quick review about it here : https://www.watchuseek.com/threads/ingersoll-in6803-empire-state-automatic.1701106/ ) This watch probably has been behind the counter...

    Does anyone have any trusted independent service recommendations for older Glycines? I have a 1960's Airman that needs servicing/cleaning and potentially a new crystal (cracked at date window). I would prefer that they don't break the hacking wire while working on it, so I was hoping someone...

    Hello, this is my first post here on this forum, so i hope this is in the right area. Anyway, i recently purchased a vintage Reyco brand chronograph from an antique store in my area. It has what i believe to be a Valjoux 22 movement in it, and it is in good working order except for the...

    Hi all - would like some advice on servicing this vintage Omega. It was my grandfather’s so has a good deal of sentimental value and would love to get it to a state where I could wear it from time to time. Obviously, I know the provenance and it is still running (although a little fast) but...

    Hey WUS, I'm crossposting my question from reddit because I think this forum may be better for this question. I'm seeking some opinions regarding my early 1990s Omega Seamaster Professional 300M mid-size automatic that needs some servicing and minor repairs. My biggest issues with the watch...

    I recently got a great deal on a JDM version of a Grand Seiko 9F quartz watch and it sparked a deeper interest in electric/electronic time pieces. I was always fascinated by the Accutron Spaceview and recently learned of the higher end versions of the tuning fork movement used in other brands...

    Hello watchuseek I am trying to figure out what watch did my grandfather own, and whether it would be worth trying to get it serviced/restored? Any thoughts or advice would be great. I cannot recognize this company/manufacturer.

    Hey, so like the title says, I've got a Heuer Autavia 1163V, Caliber 12 that needs serviced. I don't know any history on prior service work. Looks good on the outside so I don't think it's ever had water in it. When I got it, the pushers and crown were pretty sticky and hard to push. After...

    I am interested in one of these, but it says that the battery can only be changed by an authorized service center at a high cost every two years. I am wondering if I can change it myself. I have tried to find Youtube videos or instructions, but no luck. Anyone...
