I just want to mention Juan Arsenian in Downtown San Francisco. He is in the (apparently well known) Shreve building which is filled with watchmakers. He has been there for more than 60 years as a watchmaker and has received a certificate of honor from the city for his work. He recently repaired my ancient Rolex 6466 which was not running at all. He took barely a week and did a full cleaning/overhaul and got it working for $300 which I think is VERY reasonable. Especially after I got a quote of around $700 from the RSC in the same building. He is a very nice old man, and seems to take a lot of pride in his work. I recommend him highly if you do not want to pay RSC prices.

I've used Dung Lam at Herndon Watch and Clock before as well to service two watches, one vintage Omega and he also did my 16013 last year. I was happy with the work both times and thought the pricing was fair. He has also added/removed links for me multiple times for no charge.

They're all from the BH service center and even have their work stations from Rolex. They opened up shop when the BH SC closed down.

I'm really happy with the customer service I received and the fact they fixed exactly what I wanted in 45 minutes instead of the 6-8 week turn around I was quoted from the Dallas SC.
Ill check on these too

The Authorized Rolex Repair shop at 210 Post Street is around. I had a watch
overhauled and picked it a month ago. They did an excellent job.
Great guys!

Service in SE Florida needed - do you know these two?

I'm looking for reliable indie Rolex service in the area Palm Beach to North Miami.

Do you have an opinion on
- Eric Young in Coral Springs (says he does a lot of Rolex repair for the area watch dealers) or
- Daoud's in Fort Lauderdale?

Or any other recommendations in SE Florida?

Thank you so much!

Back in Time International - Birmingham, MI

Useful thread - good idea

For folks in suburban Detroit I recommend these guys. I have posted a few times before about them. I was just in there recently to switch my Sub LV over to a black bezel insert. Good people!

Their store is right next to the Birmingham Theater (www.backintimeintl.com).

I bought my pre-owned coke GMT II 16710 from "Back in Time International". They have a Rolex parts account and do expert repair. If you are looking for a non-AD local option - check them out. They buy & sell all high end pre-owned brands including Rolex, Patek & Omega as well as sell new Longines, Doxa, Hamilton & a few others. The owner's name is Kirk Putze and his wife's name is Michelle. They run a very nice boutique style shop and were even written up in Fortune Magazine a couple of years ago.

You can ship it to Rikki at TimeCare or drive to him. He's about 3.5hrs NW from you. I just got back my 16618 gold Submariner from him. I've seen his work and it's about the best that I've seen. He also has a Rolex parts account. Watch came back like new. This is the reason I went with Rikki. I've post some pictures tonight when I have time.

The ones I've used so far are:

Herndon Clock and Watch, Herndon VA - great service, fair pricing
The Jewelry Doctor, Vienna VA - jewelry type watch repairs, i.e. soldering, etc.
Zaf Basha, DC (www.classicwatch.com) - solid service without "frills" at fair prices
Liljenquist & Beckstead - Tysons Galleria, VA. AD with good service at AD prices

Rikki and Bob Ridley both have pieces from my collection. I'm sure they'll both do a great job as well. I tend to use different vendors for different watches and problem types.

Thanks a lot, much appreciated! I'm right around the corner from you btw. We could time our repairs with Ricky and make it a roadtrip ;-D

Is anyone familiar with this outfit? They are in Sandy Utah. Claims to have good service prices. They have a website and list on eBay, but neither really means much when it comes to being reliable.
