Recently I sent my ProDiver off for repair to the Watchmaker in Stoneham, MA due to the fact that the rubber trim around the bezel was starting to come off. While on vacation my two year old son was playing with the watch, and I guess he started picking at the rubber trim. Part of it has come undone, so I sent it off for repair. Today I got an email with an estimate for the repair @ $428.60. This seems completely insane to me. Does anyone know of another trusted place I can send my Oris, or can I purchase this part myself? When I called to discuss the cost, I thought maybe by chance it was for the entire bezel with the trim attached, yet the lady on the phone informed me that it was $303.60 for just the rubber trim. The additional cost was $95 for labor and $30 to ship the watch back to me.
Please help -- if this is my only option, I guess I'll opt to pay it.
