I've had an Oris 42mm BC3 (eta 2836-2) for about 10 years but its let moisture in and now they want over $NZ500 (US$ 400) to fix it.
I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for me. I can get a movement through Otto Frei (ETA Mechanical Watch Movements) for $176, and I thought I could give this to a small time watchmaker to place in my old case. What other parts do I need to get or should I expect a small shop to carry the various seals and gaskets? Any other ideas on how to get it running again for a realistic price? Ship to Thailand for repair?
Many thanks in advance.
