    Question Any PROFESSIONAL REPAIR experts among us? Or even a list thereof?

    As per title.

    Anywhere - EU, US, East Asia, Australia - is OK.

    No, I will not send it to Yemen, or Bhutan, etc.

    I need to have a Val 7751 oiled, and don't care to send it back to the maker.
    The warranty is long gone anyway, and the 7751 is a standard movement.
    Any professionally certified watchmaker ought to be able to oil it right.

    Thanks in advance y'all.

    Try this list. Iv'e used Govberg and have been very happy with them. No matter who you choose, expect a long lead time. Too many watches, not enough watchmakers.

    Govberg gives a 15 Month warranty. Most others on this list will give some sort of warranty also.

    Clock Savant in (I believe) Virginia seems to get good reviews here and elsewhere. I've seen his work on Instagram and he seems very thorough.

    Archer is a member here. He appreciates the 7750-based movements and knows them well. In my limited familiarity with watch service providers, I would trust him above all others for a 7751. He is located in Canada, and is very much in demand. You would need to see if he is able (willing) to add your watch to his workload.
    Alternatively, search CW21-Certified watchmakers through the AWCI website
    https://members.awci.com/AWCIWEB/AWC...berSearch.aspx
    I suspect any certified watchmaker would be trained on the 7750 platform.

    Nesbits in Seattle gets really good reviews but they aren't cheap.
