about $60-70 from recollection (for the replacement of the crystal only not for the service)

Hi Oli,

 

I had my Seamaster serviced by Master Watchmakers in the CBD and they were reasonable (based on my research through all other watch makers / stores). Took about 2-3 days from memory and they changed quite a few parts and did not have to send the watch away (all on-premise).  Can dig up receipt what they changed if need be.

 

Master Watchmakers

Address: Suite 1004,Level 10/265 Castlereagh Street, Sydney NSW 2000
Phone:(02) 9264 7769

 

 

This guy also seems to get a bit of a write up on the web and Whirpool forums:

Max Schweizer Swiss Watch Service
Suite 313 Level 3
375 George Street
Sydney NSW 2000 Australia

 

Telephone: +61 (02) 9290 1469
Fax: +61 (02) 9290 1504 
E-Mail:  
maxschweizersws@hotmail.com

 

Doesn't hurt to compare the prices.

 

Good luck and let me know how you go.

 

B.

I have a Seagull 1963 Reissue that needs to be looked at. It stopped working a few years back and has been sitting in the drawer ever since. Does anyone have any recommendations in Melbourne?

How long did it work before stopping?

Wouldn't be able to tell you. Didn't have it long. Perhaps nine months.

Beautiful piece. Was thinking of buying one.

Yeah.

 

If you are, I might send you this one, it needs to be fixed, and I'm not sure if I'll actually wear it.

Max Schweizer is great - he is Rolex alumni from my understanding. Though he's semi retired - his son is also a watchmaker/repairer and runs the show. They serviced a datejust of mine recently and did a great job.

OMG I just gave my son a lesson in ironing a shirt. He watched while I did half then he did half.

I feel as if I have just inducted him into some secret mens lodge biggrin.gif mind you i did tell to get married and that way the Mrs would do it for him.

On the subject of watches do you think one of the people mentioned may be able to procure a hexagonal crystal?Or know where i could have one made. I have taken it to Omega and they sent it to Switzerland and returned it un-repaired, its a 1983 model.

You could try Joe Santos in Sydney. He's the acknowledged Omega demigod around these parts. But don't hold your breath waiting for a result.

I can recommend Thomas Czibula in Sydney. I've used him several times for my watches - www.watchrepair.com.au/

Will follow these up next time in Sydney. Was speaking with a friend who mentioned that I could try the glass works here in Canberra to get one custom made. Aside from that it's been serviced a few years back and just needs a new battery.

Going local with BT to get my linen jacket. Considered OH but that would involve at least three trips to Sydney.

Quarter lined, two buttons, single vent,patch pockets. Padded shoulders? Not sure of colour either Tobacco or an olive will see what they have when I visit this week.

Can't recommend unlined Safari Jackets enough.
