That is a tremendous understatement.
Let me say that one of the significant benefits of owning watches with more pedestrian movements (ETA and such) is the opportunity to seek out a much wider array of repair / service options.
When you have proprietary movements and zero outside access to parts, the manufacturers have you by the short hairs, and they know it. And too often they shamelessly exploit it.
I once had a watch magnetized and took it to the dealer as the watch was still under warranty. The dealer was told by the manufacturer that the warranty did not apply to the watch being magnetized (not surprising) and that a $600 full service would be required one the watch had been demagnetized (say W H A T ???)
Chuck you Farley, gimmemywatchback. That's like being told that a full transmission rebuild would be required after an oil change.
