Re: Need recommendation for watchmaker

Hi -

I have a Breitling watch and I want to get the exterior cleaned. Can anyone tell me where I can go to get that done relatively cheap? I'm not looking for a watchmaker with 90 years experience and qualifications up the wazoo, nor someone who will charge me hundreds.

Thanks -

To clean the exterior you need an old tooth brush and some window cleaning liquid.

Or an ultra-sonic cleaner, which I think they have hanging about, cheap, in Aldi, at the moment.

Re: Need recommendation for watchmaker

My daughter gave me a Gucci watch, using a battery, to get repaired. In UK a shop estimated Ģ250. In France I established it wasn't a battery problem.

I used this company, http://www.uhrreparatur-online.de/ - they put in a complete new Omega movement, and charged me a total of € 99.

They send you an empty box and an address. You send them the broken watch by DHL. They give you an estimate by e-mail, & you accept, or you pay for the postage and they return your watch. They repair the watch and send you the final bill by e-mail. You pay the bill and they post you the watch back again, by registered post. For insurance purposes, you need a German address, I used LAS Burg at Weil am Rhein, and a DHL depot is just across the road.

I was very pleased with their service! http://www.uhrreparatur-online.de/
