    Quick q: got a baume and mercier geneve that will cost $360 to repair. Worth it? Or too subjective to opine on? Pics earlier in this thread.

    An expensive watch is often expensive to repair. Just how it goes.

    That seems to be roughly the start cost for a mechanical watch repair (which is usually an overhaul). This is what it will probably cost to have your watch serviced, once the warranty period ends. So, to answer your question: Yes.

    why isn't the roman numeral for "4", is as "IIII".

    My Roman is rusty, but isn't it "IV"

    FAILwatch?


    Apparently it's a watch thing. My Breitling Crosswind did the exact same thing.
