    Screw down crown came off a Tag Heuer - am I getting screwed

    I took my sons Tag Formula 1 into a local watch shop at a strip mall. They estimated it would cost $150 to order the crown and stem tube to fix the watch. It seems excessive to me but I don't have much experience getting watches fixed. Am I getting screwed? Thanks in advance for your experienced replies. Gil

    i don't know if this helps, but i just shipped off my blancpain to get a complete service...disassemble/clean/polish/relubericate/reassemble/water pressure test...price $670 without replacing any parts. i think your son's watch has a screw in crown which would necessitate a different stem tube from a push/pull crown for example and would probably justify the higher price for parts and labor. to me it seems reasonable but take that for what it's worth...2cents.
    There’s a sky out there that stars on forever, I wanna find it.

    I would not have anything of value repaired at a local strip mall... I *might* trust them with a battery change on an affordable, but beyond that, to the watchmaker it goes...

    Price is ok but unless you're certain about the shop take it to a competent watchmaker.

    Be careful who you let service your watch, but as far as price, looking at Tag's service cost price list it seems pretty reasonable.

    Very reasonable. Odds are they will be sending your watch away to a watch maker to fix. The people who work at these stands usually deal only with quartz. But their head office has watch makers.

    My Edox C-1 stem broke deep into the case, $45 to replace. Push pull crown.
    I suggest you get a 2nd opinion.

    The price doesn't seem too bad but was the quote for TAG parts or generic ones. Many moons ago a watchmaker put a generic crown on my Tissot and it looked a real horse's bottom. Either way I would get a quote off a genuine watchmaker.
