would indy be significantly cheaper?
I paid £250 for a datejust from Duncan @ TheWatchBloke, that included a new crystal and a seal kit.
Third watch I've had done by him, services rolex's, pateks, APs etc.
Duncan is tempting and his quote was £150 for a movement service, excluding parts. Unfortunately he is unsurprisingly very busy and currently has a 16 week waiting list and you don't get in the waiting list until you ship him the watch. So that plus 4-8 weeks for the actual service and its almost half a year without the watch
That is the only issue with him to be fair, but I’ve always had my watches back at least a couple of weeks earlier, but it’s still a long wait.
I don’t wear a watch often so didn’t mind the time.
