Rolex Oysterquartz 17000 Service

Hi everyone,
Great wealth of information in this forum.
I picked up a pretty trashed 1978 Rolex Oysterquartz 17000 for 2,000 dollars. I live a mile from a Rolex AD and dropped it off for service. A week later, I was quoted the following:

Necessary Work:
Complete overhaul $2,250.00
- Electronic module - x 1
- Motor module - x 1
Refinish Bracelet
Replace Clasp $185.00
- Clasp 16/100 17000b st - x 1
Refinish Case
Replace Crown $46.00
- Crown with gasket 604 st - x 1
Replace Crystal $133.40

The question I have is, does the overhaul with new parts seem high in regards to price to anyone?

Thanks for your time,
AJ

Pricing seems normal. The module/motor are both expensive components unfortunately. They seldom need replacing though.

All in all, a good pickup IMO.

El módulo eléctrico vale 600 euros, y módulo motor 700 euros, son piezas bastante caras.

Good thing now is these parts are still available new, maybe in 5 years out of stock?
After replacing these critical parts you will be good to goo again for another 25 years or more I hope withe regular maintenance.

Really good point, Ron, thanks. I dropped the Oysterquartz off at my AD today to get overhauled. Again, thanks for all of your opinions.
Kindly,
AJ
