Presentable Watches

Substitute 'Tools' with 'Watches'!

The Sherlock Holmes jobby.
The arms are actually longer than on the adverts - which imho makes it look better. Crap photo and I must learn to somehow to get an app where it's not trying to upload A4 sized photos.

£692, 000........ would you wear this on your wrist ?
I'm pretty sure I could think of better uses for that amount of dosh.
Probably something with wheels, after having bought a small house in the South west.

> It is a pain, it is expensive, but once every 10, or so years it is worth getting a expensive piece serviced. Plenty of specialists out there that are cheaper than sending the watch off to the maker.

Much like a BMW (etc.) once out of warranty why take it to an authorised dealer, and pay through the nose, when there are plenty of ex BMW techies out there.

What people don’t realise is that a mechanical watch does need wearing to keep the movement happy. And lubed, seals etc checked.

Someone much wiser than me once said ‘expect to pay more in servicing over the lifetime than for the timepiece itself’.

Apart from three G-Shocks have four mechanical watches, just love the movement.

Come servicing time, anyone need a 2nd hand kidney? a bit used.
I have worn my Omega Seamaster as my everyday watch since I purchased it in 2002. Had it serviced three times. Omega send all the bits that they replace back with the watch. On the last service I doubt that there was much left in the watch that had not been changed. Seals are always done. Expect to pay around £300 on average service.

Not sure how much I pay for my Submariner.

just put my pin in and try not to look at the amount.

About £380 last service. To be fair it was away for three months, needed a new bezel (as my wardrobe had attacked it!).

it’s now 25 years old. And for a Rolex surprising accurate.
