$50. Send me the Nvicta, plus $50, and we'll dispose of it for you.











But seriously, we can service vintage quartz and higher end modern quartz - I.e. jewelled movements that were designed to be serviced - and prices would be similar to those quoted above, probably a bit less. Having said that, something like a Twin Quartz requires a fair bit of work, so the discount is probably not that substantial.

Indeed it is. And falling by the day, pretty much. So I think that makes our prices pretty competitive for U.S.A. customers.

Our turnaround time is also competitive. The guys that everybody on the forums recommend almost by default are, generally, very good - with a couple of notable exceptions - but often their turnaround times extend into the months. My watchmaker, while not working exclusively for CWA, has committed to prioritising CWA jobs where necessary to meet this timeframe. At a pinch, I have a second, excellent, watchmaker I use but he is more expensive, so I would take a bit of a hit.

My watch guy in Everett, WA charges $180 for an automatic or slightly over $100 for quartz.

Yep. And AUD200 is currently US$143.

It is the gateway for Rolex employment. Two "watchmakers" that did my servicings at Ben Bridge are graduates of that course and both moved on to the Rolex Repair Center.

I need to find another place for servicing (and one that doesn't require shipping the wartch to Australia).
