what brand? what model?
what brand? what model?
425 USD for my Nivrel Skeleton. Could be 80 USD for my Lucien Piccard, that was about 25 years
ago, which is like 400 or so today.
The $2500 I paid for my bench, tools, and a big stash of parts :)
It paid off very quickly, however.
In all seriousness, the last time I used a watchmaker was to service a fairly rare watch with a broken balance staff for which I could not locate a replacement. A 90-year old watchmaker in the next town over who I use occasionally charged me $95 to turn a balance staff and clean the movement.

$493, not including shipping. Watch was an older Eterna-matic
Just a few days ago I payed £920 for full overhaul and restoration of a Rolex Oysterdate......technically a service I suppose!

$1275 - Grand Seiko Spring drive GMT Chronograph.
Included full overhaul and polish.
I just paid $1,300 for Breguet for a routine service for my Breguet Marine II Chronograph. I also just paid $1,200 to an authorized repair center for routine service on a recent vintage Zenith El Primero powered watch. That same authorized repair center said almost any other chronograph (including Rolex and Omega) would cost half that for a service. I wonder what is so expensive about the EP to service.
