    Oris Repair The Watchmaker in Boston

    My Oris Diver Chrono has a broken movement. The small bottom chronograph hour hand doesn't stop running. It should only run when stopwatch function is on. So Oris's USA repair shop quoted me about $600 to take watch apart and completely clean, fix, lubricate, replace bezel insert and crown. Also warranty it for 1 year. It seems to sound pretty good. Any thoughts on it?

    Brad, only an authorised Oris repairer can get Oris parts but your watch makes use of a 7750 movement (I’m fairly sure) and that seems to be the issue rather than the watch itself so if it was mine I’d get a quote from an independent repairer who will tell you if the watch needs any “Oris only” parts to make it right.

    I've been thinking about the only 1 Oris authorized repair shop in the US issue. It seems like $600 is high. I had a Certina that was running really fast. The diagnosis was foreign objects in the movement. Swatch replaced the movement and crown and did all their polishing and testing for $138.45. I had a Tag Heuer go in for service and I forget the exact number, but it was less than $250. I've heard mixed reviews about The Watchmaker and their famous watch graveyard. I love Oris, but this may prevent me from buying another.

    $600 for a manufacturer to repair a mechanical chronograph movement is well within the norm. Sure, you can find an independent that will do it cheaper (assuming no parts needed, or that they can get what they need), but for a factory job, that's the going rate. For comparison, Omega charges $750 for service on a Moonwatch, a manual wind chronograph with no date.

    $600 seems good to me, considering they're replacing the bezel insert and crown, and it's a chrono.

    Did you speak with Royal near by? They have an in-house team as well.

    PS "The Watchmaker" is one of the greats!
