Hey guys. I have a 1980s civilian Hamilton Khaki field watch that is need of a service. I had a great experience with Jack over at IWW but their wait time is something like 6 months now. Do you guys have any recommendations? I'm in New York, so local places are welcome as well but I also don't want to be charged an arm and a leg for a 3-hand watch.

Wow Stitch,

 

Very cool that the Patek pocket watch still has its original box and papers.  Sadly, with a very limited interest in pocket watches these days, even when they are from big names such as PP, AP, VC they generally don't sell for very much...just a few grand, unless they have several complications.  Still a very cool watch!

Yeah, I did'nt want to mention it, but most Air-kings and date-justs could qaulify as casual 2! More than 3, your collecting! I have a friend who keeps everthing in a med. safe @ home! I have been there done that as well, 2much money involved! And the watches will begin to take up 2much space!  Have you got winders? There ok, but you have the space problem again!

Once watches get to be 42mm or larger they don't easily stay under shirt cuffs and they draw more attention due to size.  While our clients want us to do well, if a watch or car seems too flashy and expensive...they start to resent it, wonder if we charge too much, and if they are footing the bills for too many of our toys.  Its just easier to fly under the radar with more average sized watches (particularly ones with brushed surfaces).

....

Speaking of which, what do you think of this in terms of suitability (42mm, not my pic):

i do not. i enjoy setting and winding my watches. if i had an annual or perpetual calendar id consider it, but absent of that i dont find a real need, personally.

The JLC boutique at Raffles Hotel Singapore is closed. The next nearest one would be at Marina Bay Sands.

Anyway, flag ship boutiques do not exactly give much discount (if any).
