    ^ True, but in a thread full of $X,XXX - $XX,XXX watches this is about as luxurious as a Timex. Yeah its pretty cool, I just love Skeleton watches, nothings cooler then seeing the gears, springs & cogs all whirring away; doing their thing. A have a few more like it that I bought when in Italy.

    $200, on a bankruptcy sale of a Jewelry store near my house. Not too sure what the original cost was, I think $300ish. They were blowing out their inventory with a few days left. I offered $200 and they took it tax in.

    Or, are they going to send it to Rolex?

    Be very careful here. That Tudor is quite valuable, and if it's gets sent to Rolex, they will simply replace the dials, hands and bezel with brand new ones.......and the value of your watch will plummet by 50% or more. All the value of that watch (not including the sentimental value) is in the patina on the dial and hands.

    If it were me, I would simply have the movement serviced, gaskets replaced and leave it as is. I've seen lots of vintage watches ruined by Rolex as they always replace with new parts.
    I agree with you 100%.

    They will be sending the watch to some watchmaker in Kelowna I believe. Rolex/Tudor wont service a watch that old any more. Brinkhaus said that the watch maker will only recommend service/replacement of parts that will not significantly reduce the value of the watch. No work will be done on the watch before the watchmaker consults me.

    As you mentioned they will probably only service the parts you mentioned and probably replace the crystal as it has a couple bad scratches.

    I'll post an update as I learn more. Not expecting their estimate for 7-10 days.

    If I'm wearing it I consider it worthy. I could care less how much they cost. As long as I like it I'm good.

    So I got a call from Brinkhaus yesterday. They got the quote back from the watchmaker. They will just be performing a service on the movement, replacing seals, refinishing/polishing the crystal/bracelet/case and a minor part replacement on the movement. Cost they quoted was about $600. It will be about 6 weeks to get back, will post pics when done.

    I was wearing a Citizen Ecodrive watch for the past 7-8 years but the sensor apparently stopped working one day and it'll cost me almost as much as the cost of the watch to fix it. So, I decided to put on my university grad gift from my dad that I had stashed away in the corner for the past few years. Not a fan of the wind-up/kinetic motion but I guess it'll do for now. Definitely miss having a date function though.

    I love those watches. Never owned one, but wouldn't mind playing around with one. They are way to big for my wrists which is the only downside.
