Quartz watch repairs:
Movement replacement - $60 labor fee plus the cost of the movement. This service includes a case cleaning and polish. We generally do not recommend overhauls on quartz watches. It is usually cheaper, faster, and more feasible to replace the movement than it is to service the original.
We do not service Accutron movements. We can replace a battery in an Accutron, however, we use a modern battery which may cause the watch to perform less than optimally.
Mechanical watch repairs:
Pocket watch services start at $125 for an overhaul and case work. Please be aware that as pocket watches are generally antiques, they may take longer to service than a new watch. If parts are needed for your pocket watch to work, we may be measuring the length of time for the repair in months as opposed to weeks.
Mechanical (manual wind) watch services start at $150 for an overhaul, which includes the overhaul as well as cleaning and polishing the case.
Automatic watches (non-premium brands) have a base rate of $175 for the overhaul and case work.
Premium brand automatic watches have a base rate of $250 for the overhaul and case work. Premium brands include (but, naturally, are not limited to) Omega, Tag Heuer, Movado, Ebel.
Rolex service starts at $350, which includes the overhaul, case cleaning and polishing, and replacing the mainspring. We typically use Swiss parts made for Rolex, but the parts are not branded "Rolex". If you would like us to use genuine Rolex parts, we will, however the price will go up exponentially as Rolex parts have a much higher cost. Frankly, please don't get us started on Rolex trade practices as life is short and who wants an angry watchmaker?
Replica watch services include case polishing and cleaning, band shortening, and crystal replacement. All services performed on a replica watch are done at the customer's risk; we do not provide any warranty that the work A) can be completed or B) will leave you with a working watch. We do not ever service the movements on replica watches...even if they say they are "Swiss Made." Look, we know they're cheaper than the real thing (what isn't?) and sometimes the cases are really good! But from a mechanical standpoint, the movements inside are crap.
