Does anyone have a recommendation for an independent JLC service? I.e as you can do with Rolex at Genesis

Watchdoctors.co.uk in Hertfordshire.

Can thoroughly recommend. Sent my old mans broken Breitling in there and they fixed and serviced it for £300.

Cheers is it actually for my dad as well, that site doesn't seem to list JLC though.

Just click into the ‘watch brands’ bit rather than looking at the dropdown.

Worth giving them a call, they’re pretty honest. If they don’t think they can help, I’m sure they’ll suggest somewhere for you.

Yep from t5. Got the Wimbledon datejust a few months ago. You need to be flying outside of the EU to get VAT off.

Im going vegas in may so i can buy a piece on way out and wont have to worry on way back in then…

Give them a call before you fly so you get a feel for what they have.

Nice piece man. Lugs on the new subs are trash.

Already looking into the tritium hands mate, finding them for a decent price is difficult though! If I can sell my luminova ones after replacing them then it won’t be too bad I guess.

Thinking of selling my 2012 Rolex Explorer 2 (216570). Got the box and papers etc. Not been serviced since I bought it but been meaning to do it. Is it worth doing it for 500quid plus or shall I just sell it as is?
