    Watch service recommendation in Los Angeles for my new (to me) Breguet

    Hi all,
    I just purchased a preowned Breguet 5920. It is in pretty good shape but I can tell it is in need of a service. I know I can have Breguet perform the service but besides being fairly expensive it also takes a long time (at least 4 weeks, probably 6-8 I am told).
    Also, I am a new collector and thus have not really had to service any of my watches yet. That said, I have a few that will be due for service and would love to find someone who does good work locally. I am in Los Angeles, California (USA).
    Would appreciate any recommendations anyone may have.
    Thank you!
    Kevin

    New here too, but welcome. Lots of great and helpful people here.

    Can't give you specifics on LA, but would suggest that it is worth the fuel to visit the places local to you and get an actual "on the ground" feel for the place and talk to the people. You may be pleasantly surprised by what you find, but then you can also get an insight into places that you would not trust. As an example, visited a place where I am, all looked good, not the most high end of offerings in the watch department, but still not bad. Talked to their head watchmaker about service work etc. Watch movement I was asking about was basic eta so should have experience. Got quoted WAY over the odds for a service, BUT even more off putting was that the watchmaker was stoned beyond belief. I mean, obviously so.
    So, I guess another suggestion would be to make those visits after lunch as well.

    Thank you both for the replies! I did the usual rookie move of posting THEN doing a search - seems like Time tec is a popular choice. That said, I'm glad to hear more people recommending Time tec. They are not too far from me and seem like they really know what they are doing.

    I'm going to call today to get a sense of cost (compared to just sending it to Breguet) but agree that it's great to be able to walk in and get a sense for a place and the people.

    Thanks,

    Kevin
