    Antea Kleine Sekunde – stopped after fall. Repair cost?

    Hello, all.

    In 2012, my girlfriend gave me a silver Antea Kleine Sekunde for my 30th birthday. I wore it every day for about 18 months and loved everything about it.

    Then, one evening at 21:26, I dropped it on the wooden floor as I took it off my wrist. The watch landed heavily and stopped. Fully winding it and jiggling it did not start it again.

    At the time I had no money to fix it and vowed to do so later. I still have little money to spare, but I’d really like to fix this watch. I understand I can send it to Stowa in Germany for repair. But before I do that, does anyone have any idea how much the repair might cost? Are we talking €20 or €200 or even more?

    Of course you can’t know what’s wrong with it (there’s no external damage), but perhaps these watches suffer a typical type of drop damage?

    Should I instead try to find a watchmaker here in Paris to attempt the job? If so, does anyone have an address?

    Thanks!

    Best to send an email to Stowa. It won't be €20 though, that's for sure.

    Guess: broken spring. Any skilled watchmaker will be able to repair a ETA 7001 and knows where to source the necessary parts.
    Watchmaker in Paris ? No clue. I'd ask on a french watch forum, "forum a montres" for example, a place were some french Stowaristi hang around.

    Welcome to the forums! No need to send this to Germany. Any competent watchmaker can work on ETA...

    Thanks for the amazingly quick replies. I’ll try to find a competent watchmaker in Paris and get a quote then. May drop Stowa an email too, though I predict they won’t hazard a guess at cost without having seen the watch.

    If it is a broken spring, any idea how much that might cost? I’m not looking for precise figures, just an idea of what to expect.

    I suppose from the replies that a Peseux 7001 is actually an ETA movement?

    I think ETA did buy Peseux a long time ago.
    And yes, Forumamontres is the right place for asking.
