Whilst I have not been posting on the blog, I have been quite busy with a few projects.
Just bought another Japan, Monster posted on the Rolex Forum that was less than a month old for about 75% of the brand new price. We also have a couple of genuine Swiss Mickey Mouse watches in for repair, a Seiko Chrono from the 70’s and a Seiko Diver’s watch.
It is still quite cheap to get a watch repaired in Singapore but prices are creeping up. A regular ‘3-hand’ watch still costs about $40 but a chronograph will set you back $90.
Not a ridiculous amount of money but if you are like me when I first started collecting and buy up any good bargain you come across, you will soon have a fair few watches to keep running and the costs will start to add up. Many of these watches at the end of the day, will also not be worth more than a couple of hundred dollars so they are not really an investment in the conventional sense of the word.
If any of you have a watch you want repaired, please feel free to let me know and I will try and point you in the right direction. Also if you are like AG and need help with something like what he needs help with, please feel free to let me know.
This is a message I received a few days ago and I am looking forward to finding out what sort of watches we are talking about. Hopefully, some of them will need up on this blog or in my collection 🙂
Ray. I have about 12 vintage watches in my collection—mostly american iconic brands—I want to sell. can U help. I live in Singapore, ex/oz.
