    Question Service for Venus 178 Breitling - where to go?

    I'm based in New York, and would love someplace local if possible, where are you guys trusting to bring your vintage chronographs? Any local watchmakers known for doing good work on vintage pieces?

    Also I know the going price from Breitling is around $700 for full overhaul, I would love a better deal than that for sure, since there's no way I'm waiting 6 months and worrying about my watch going swiss and back.

    Thanks!

    I can't advise because I'm in the EU, but just FYI you should NOT send a vintage Breitling watch to Breitling under any circumstances. They do t know anything about vintage watches.

    If it just needs a routine service, a competent local watchmaker will suffice and it should cost you $300-400 for a full tear down and rebuild.

    I'm in the same boat. I've got a vintage Venus 188 chronograph and wouldn't trust an official service center for older models.

    Look up horologicalservices.com as a first and probably the best port of call.

    After some testing it seems that the web site is unavailable at the moment. I don't think they have been
    effected by weather events in the states but you never know. They are on line and contactable most times..
