    Oris Aquis Repair Cost Quote

    Hi All:

    I had a problem with my Aquis, the watch would intermittently stop. Sent it off for an estimate (not Oris, local shop), $570 to fully overhaul my watch movement. Is this a fair price for a full overhaul? How much would it cost to buy a new movement and crown? What would you do?

    Thanks in advance.

    That sounds high. I just had my Oris F1 7560 with an ETA 2836-2 movement overhauled, replaced the sapphire crystal and new (aftermarket unfortunately) tube, stem and crown replaced and polished the bright work for $300 total. I say look around. If I'm not mistaken the movement on your Aquis is a Selita SW200 based movement? I think you can find those for about $200 new online.

    "overhall" is used to up the price for a service.

    You should check with The Watchmaker in MA to see what they would charge. I had them fix a crown on a Glycine I used to own and I seem to recall it costing me about $150. I was just quoted $900 for a complete service on an ETA 7750, when the time comes. So the quote you received doesn't sound unreasonable. As far as replacing the movement, that would depend on what movement you're replacing. What movement is in your Aquis?

    Not sure what it should cost you but that sounds very high.

    I was quoted HK$1800 (($230) for a clean and lube service on my Longines (ETA2824 same as SW200-1) by the Swatch Gp service centre here in Hong Kong which doesn't include any replacement parts. It does seem high. The only thing is that if you buy a replacement movt you might not get the top grade spec that will be fitted to your Oris.

    Oh - why do you need a new crown?

    That sounds like the cost of a Rolex service, not an Oris. The person servicing it may just be unreasonably high on everything.
    High capacity is not a substitute for good marksmanship.
