I do actually, I inquired at Alsal on the Strand last week and they wanted £300 to service my Chronoscope (which I bought there).

Cool cheers. How long did it take to turn around?

I haven't taken it in yet.

Anyone here bought a watch from Montredo? Think they are a europe based internet only type affair for high end watch brands, wondering if there are any downsides as there prices are some of the most reasonable around. edit, also heritagewatches.co.uk anyone had any dealings?

Seriously not trying to flex, but I need a Rolex sub UA that I can pick up in the next few days in London.
Anyone know anywhere?

‘Unauthorised authentic’, it’s a phrase used to describe high standard fakes.

Need it for literally a minute then will chuck it away.

I have a di modell rallye on my speedy, cheap as chips and looks great imo, would imagine their other straps are just as good quality wise

Nice one chaps. Will give both a look.

@dee yeah I grew up in the Middle East so wanted an Eastern Arabic dial. They’re cheap as chips as well. Still saving up for the platinum day date so this will do in the meantime.
