Best Watch Service Recommendations

Where do you recommend sending your watch to for service? I have a watch that is a decade old and was thinking about sending it in for service. I live in Colorado (Which does not matter with shipping, as long as it is in North America).

If it鈥檚 running fine and you have no issues, no reason to have it serviced. If it鈥檚 not running fine and you send it in they do the same exact thing, take it apart, clean it, replace some parts if it needs it, then lube it and put it back together, or put it pack together then lube, or lube it as they are putting it back together, I know nothing about watch making. It鈥檚 not like a car that needs scheduled maintenance to prevent some catastrophic failure.

For something that is quite valuable to me (sentimental or otherwise), I always use Chronotek. They are incredibly skilled, never do anything that is unnecessary (like polish or refinish when you don't specifically ask for it), are able to get parts for just about anything, and are extremely nice people. Not the cheapest, not the fastest, but one of the best. http://chronotekinc.com/?p=home

If it鈥檚 pre 2008 it鈥檚 an in-house movement. Post 2008 is a HEAVILY modified ETA. If there is nothing wrong with it, leave it alone. If there is something wrong find a qualified local to diagnose. If it REALLY needs repair, you might consider sending it to the mfg. if it needs any non-standard parts.. stour local could run into troubles. Good luck

I'm with @PoorMansRolex on this one. I've heard really good things about TicToc Watch Repair, but I prefer to have my watch serviced locally and build up a relationship with my watchmaker. It's always fun to come it and geek out with people who actually know watches.

I want to get it oiled up and regulated. I do not yet feel confident enough to do that.

I live in a more rural area, and we do have one watch maker but he kind of sucks and is not a very friendly person. I am looking to send it to a more reputable company.
