    Default Are there any TD dealers also providing a watch o/haul service

    I want to order an Explorer I 214270 from J Factory with SH 3132 movement, but the advice seems to be to get this movement serviced as soon as it arrives.
    I wondered if anyone knows of a dealer that will provide this rep and service the movement before sending it on to me.
    Just seems more efficient then sending it off elsewhere after waiting for the initial delivery.
    If this is pie in the sky, does anyone know of a watchmaker in Wales (UK) that are happy/capable to service these movements?

    Grape, that is an option that I think a lot of us would use if it turned out to be a qaulity service. I've thought about that a lot myself.

    Trusty offers the service, I'm confident he could source the watch.

    Even a watch serviced by a vendor, can be arrive DOA... and imagine than your frustration on sending it back to China. Paying $100 extra won´t guarantee your watch will be perfectly functioning on arrival. You should look for a watchsmith around your area and learn yourself some basics + get some proper tools.

    Look forward to his answer. I also have a couple of rep watches with genuine ETA movements. It would be informative if this made a difference to his decision, if it was negative.

    there are several "rep-friendly" watchsmiths in the EU (SSTEEL, Domi, Meister Hora... on this forum) likely your best option.
    what is the greatest luxury? it is youth, because time is the one thing you can't get back....

    Yes I know about them, but I live in Wales and it is always good to have options. You can't have too many watch smiths, especially if they will work on reps.

    Afraid not. I use SSTEEL in Finland. Posting to someone in the UK or posting it to Finland; there's not a lot of difference - a couple of pounds maybe. I've decided that it's the quality of service that is important, not how close they are to my front door.

    Ive done exactly the same thing... posted to finland... the North Wales chappy was ok and not expensive.. but his handling and clean room environment was questionable...
    As you say its the Quality that counts.
    Even in this world of reps
