    Australian watchmaker, rep friendly!

    Howdy folks,

    Just had an A2824-2 (Omega) serviced and am now having an A2836-2 (Rolex) done.

    The price?

    $120!

    Although that's with me giving him a movement removed from the case.

    But he's rep friendly and an option for Aussies!!
    He's happy to do 'bolt on' mods and servicing, but not keen on luming or major modding. Only because of the time it takes and finding that most folks don't like hourly rates. But hey, call and talk to him - he's a nice guy.

    David Keirs from Denel Jewellers
    1st Floor 12 Florence St, Hornsby NSW 2077


    UPDATE:

    Well folks. It's amazing what a bit of time will do. I can't recommend this jeweller anymore. Work has become sloppy and having to be done twice.
    The final straw, and the most recent was all brand new, sealed packet, genuine Omega parts to build a SHOM.
    After they have assembled these new parts, I now have a dented $1,100 case, damaged $280 dial and misaligned hands.

    When I complained, I was treated like crap and told the parts (brand new and in sealed packs from Omega) were already damaged.
    I'd look elsewhere for any work needing to be done.

    Hi all. I’ve not seen my particular problem discussed anywhere, but in attempting to adjust the clasp on my noob explorer, the oysterlock mechanism has fallen apart. I have all the pieces, but it’s so complex I can’t work out how to reassemble it. Google has been no help. Any suggestions in Sydney? I’m central.

    PM’d Mattravile but no reply yet.

    Cheers!

    Another vote for Ray BLK.W.EXPRESS , had a Miyota rotor silenced today and he did so on the spot. Could not be happier with the service and the result, I will definitely be going back to him again.

    He replied to PM once in blue moon (eg. 2-3 weeks). Frankly I don't think he is active.
    Would recommend Ray instead from BLK.W.EXPRESS, like other have recommended. Top notch service!

    Thought it would be appropriate to update. I have had my watch back from Ray for a while now and honestly I am geniunely impressed with his service. Took about 2 weeks to get there and back and Ray even took a second look at the watch after I managed to bugger it a few days after I first received it - without charge. I offered to cover the return shipping but Ray said not to bother about it and that it was all part of his service.

    The watch was a Noob Daytona V2 and I found his price quite reasonable for the movement. I have queried about prices for other movements and they all seem pretty good! Would strongly recommend.

    Well worth spending the $11.55 cost to send it to him. Does a great job, reliable and good communication. Just sent my second one to him.
    Just send him a pm from here & you'll get a reply



    This has been my experience as well. Just received my second job back him from today, great as usual. Thanks BLK.W.EXPRESS

    ^ yeah Ray is good. he has done a few things for me in the past - trust him enough now to ask him to build a superfranken for me. Great to have someone on this side of the world...
