With my service, he sent a cd with a 50 page report of the work from start to finish (tons of crystal clear pictures for those of us who might be challenged with technical write ups!). I had to wait about 10 extra days because of the delivery time of the crown from Doxa, but it was well worth it. You might be in luck because I think Al ordered extra crowns when he ordered mine, so, depending on how busy he is, you might be very surprised at how fast the work can be done. Drop him a line & see what he says; I don't think you'll be disappointed. I'm sure you'll hear the same about Al from others. Good luck & let us know how it turns out. Oh yeah, don't forget he can't do anything about the price of parts from Doxa, but I think you'll find his labor costs are more than fair.

    Hello,

    I think the link above may be wrong.
    Archer Watches link is ArcherWatches.ca

    Also, he has a very interesting blog!!!
    He shows his servicing of a Doxa 600t movement here:

    Pretty Cool!!!

    My bad & nice catch! I was just getting off a 12 hour midnight shift & had the ".com" auto muscle kick in. Thanks for making that correction.

    No worries! I've already written Al and he responded right back. I'm planning to sent her off here shortly. I appreciate all the recommendations!

    I have had several watches fixed/restored with Al/Archer Watches, and all work has been fantastic. These were not easy repairs, either-a restoration of a vintage Omega Seamaster 300 (14755-61), and a Sub 300 (no "T"). He also managed to service/resurrect a vintage Bulova Snorkel for me. I consider him a friend, and he's always been very responsive with emails. He also sends pics of the restoration, and his prices are really fair.

    I would send him any of my watches without hesitation. In fact, I'm thinking now of which ones to send him...

    How much should I expect to pay for a spare crown? Mine is on its way...it look like a VERY common issue with SUBs.

    For reissued (newer) Doxas, you can contact Doxa directly. In the US, Doxa has referred me to their authorized service center in Los Angeles. Serviced Doxa 600t is running fine, took about 6 weeks.

    In late 2015 I had a pair of vintage Doxa/Aqua Lung watches serviced by Jack at IWW. Does nice work and is always busy.

    Hope that helps!

    I sent in my 2002 300 reissue about a month ago to Doxa service in Hayes Virginia. I got a confirmation email telling me they'd got it and would contact me but haven't heard anything. I have sent 2 emails since. I'm beginning to worry I've been scammed.
