    Where do you take your rep if it is broken?

    Feel a little uncomfortable to just take it to a jeweler but I don’t know any alternative.
    How do you guys do that?
    Why does it say: "who has the best Sub"? I don't care...

      Members who joined in '14 and '15 respectively asking this question? Wowsers! I hate the flame-free zone. But to assist, I take my watch to the post office when it's broken.

        Nice man, really helpful. To elaborate, go to the watch smiths section and reach out to one of them and they will be able to help you out with your broken watches.

          unreformed66 Just repaired one of my watches.
          I have another one I need to send, but unreformed owned up to not being able to repair it (an over complicated rep) so on someone’s referral I messaged member Vaccum, back on the 19th, but he has yet to respond,

            GingerBubba . Offered the best advice possible. He forgot a step or three like contacting a forum watchsmith and getting the mailing address. Also Ruj. Some information on the issue, what watch and your location will get you more pointed advice.
            My wish list:
            Panerai OP VIII movement (7750 with GMT complication)

              Will check the above mentioned section (again but better). Forgot to write the watch is in Europe. Not the best idea to ship it to the us then.
              Never had an issue before on any of my Seadwellers but now one of them sounds like it is not adjusted to anything anymore and complete loose in it’s case.

                you can most likely find someone in the EU to work on it.

                        I have had a similar dilemma to yours when I started with this hobby. I figured no one would be willing to work on reps, so I invested in tools and equipment and now I fix my watches by myself. They are like little Ferraris. When they work, they are a joy, but at any given moment at least a few are broken, awaiting repairs .

                            Only thing is that I wouldn’t feel uncomfortable at the garagist

                              None of my reps have broken down yet, but if one does break I'll send it to the nearest RWI approved watch smith.
