Posting a watch to Germany

I need to send a watch to Germany for repair - anyone have any recommendations (value c.£1000) for this?

Thanks

Re: Date Options

I like a date (and also day) on the dial and also like a cyclops although only my Steinhart Ocean 1 has this.

It is very rare for me to buy a watch without a date (and I sold on a Moana Kara partly for this reason)

Re: It's All About Me

My wife and I have discussed often that so many want to be a 'rock star' these days and seem to be utterly desperate for attention/recognition. [old man voice engaged] Glad I grew up in the 70's. [/voice disengaged] Ummm, we grew up in the 90's and have the same discussion! :lol: ...but we had all ...

Ring them up direct and complain rather than via the forum and then return under 60/60 and include feedback about why you are returning it

Re: Change in 60 Month Warranty Policy?

The original wording in my Trident Chrono manual states 60 month movement guarantee. Service is recommended but not mandatory and the two are not linked. I don't believe this assertion is correct - the terms clearly state "...minimum amount of care and attention, including a regular service..." thu...

Re: It Was Supposed To Be A One Watch Year For Me

20% is a decent discount but was this after the recent price hike? I didn't realise that there had been a price increase but I've just noticed a sticker on the hang tag covering up the pre increase price, so to answer your question, yes the 20% discount was off the new price. Chris. I think they we...

In the end to put it bluntly ........
Don't like it ? Don't buy the watch, as others have decided not to do.

This is what I have done.....although mainly the former.
