    Congrats but 2 months and $2,300 for a service?

    :eek:

    RSC must have strong demand . . .

    I had a 610 anchor many moons ago.

    Bracelet is a later 93150 with 585s. Will try to source correct date code clasp possibly.

    They didn't list out any parts other than a NOS crown for $87. It was a line item of Movement Service for $2,000.

    They appear to be upcharging a ton for the big money vintage models, it's crazy.

    I agree 110%...it took two months and $2,300. Most watchmakers can knock it out in a couple of hours...blindfolded.

    Did you see the $12K service bill a dealer got on a Daytona in the UK???

    What is insane is the last service on my RSC DRSD was in 2003...for $439, so accounting for inflation, it should be around $600 today. Instead, it is over 3X as expensive.

    Makes no sense.

    Congrats on the watch, it is truly spectacular!
    (12k$ for a watch service is pretty optimistic, you coule service à Porsche Carrera GT for 12k :D)
