Right. That's more like it. I had clean/oil, new OEM crystal, new crown/pin, new gasket done last year on a 1958 Seamaster for around $250.
I requested they send it back to me and I am going to take it to family jeweler down on Jeweler's row in Philly. The messed up part is the original jeweler is also family and I really think they are trying to jerk me.
Will update on how it goes and take some pics after repairs.
It is a beautiful, classic watch. Has the "First watch worn on the moon" on the back of it. Kind of cool.
