Servicing costs for Gens

Recommended Posts

malkie

I have just sent my BR-02 in for a service and a polish, a couple of dings to be sorted too. I nearly fell over when told the cost, £300 !

Is this normal? The last gen I sent for a service was a Tag which cost £100, it was a while a go though.

yes, it is normal, and probably a bit low actually.

 

Service by the actual brand is the MOST expensive way to go. There are threads here that have posted price schedules, but I am too damn lazy to look for them right now. :P

Most Swiss AD 's like Rolex, Omega, IWC, etc usually charge $600-1000 for service. If there are a lot of repairs, much

 

more. I found a guy in NYC who is less than 1/2 of that. Just serviced and fixed my Rolex Ceramic GMT 2- $300!

Knock on wood, so far only service I had was a battery replacement for a Tag SLR Calibre S. I looked at servicing other gens, but stopped when I saw the cost. I'll wait till they're on their death beds before I get them serviced.

Here ya go, I found a thread I did on this recently: http://www.rwg.bz/bo...ce&fromsearch=1

 

It lays out the costs for various service options from the Swatch group, which will give you an idea of how this works.

That's their "standard service" (i.e. fix movement, replace crystal, etc). They charged me for a new handset since it's not included with service.

Lightgeeks bill is more in line for what I was quoted in the EU back in 2013 for a well running Seamaster routine/standard maintenance EUR 630,- + 65,- shipping +23% VAT + parts if needed.
