    Sinn ETA service in Los Angeles / USA?

    Hello,

    Does anyone have a recommended shop to service a Sinn with ETA movement in LA or USA?

    RGM seems to get mixed reviews, and they charge more than Sinn Germany.

    If the blue capsule is still OK, I'm assuming any normal (skilled) watchmaker could perform a basic service and timing adjustment?

    Thanks!

    If your watch has a sulphate capsule, then you will need someone who can refill the Ar/heavy gas inside the gas, or forgo that technology after the service (as the gas will be released at service).

    If you are in LA, LA Watchwerks and ABC Watchwerks are very well regarded for servicing watches.

    Not all models with a sulphate capsule have the Ar gas inside. My older model 856 UTC doesn't, for example.

    Thanks, I'll contact both.

    If I keep it, I'll probably service the 856 UTC later this year just to have a baseline. It's working OK so far, but I don't know the service history.

    This one doesn't have the Ar gas, according to the dial, just antimagnetic with the capsule.

    I'll try to service in summer when hot and dry :D

    thanks!
