    Hi,
    I've mainly been using AJ watch repair in Canberra, and have posted some stuff to Steve for servicing also. I was wondering what other options people know of in Australia for servicing?

    I've found a guy called Paul in Brisbane, he remanufactured the internal pushers on my Cal 320 when nobody else in Brisbane could and did it all for $240 which wasn't bad. No website, no email, just a phone number and a tiny shop behind a coffee shop.

    My watchmaker that I had local retired last year. Ernest Freher did great work and was always good for a chat. He still does some stuff for me but as he's a grey nomad now I kinda wait for 6-8 months till I get it back.
    For other stuff I want done sooner I use V&E Sintic in Castlereigh St, Sydney. Again, they do good work and are reasonably priced.

    Used a few times, reasonable prices and purchased a few watches off him. Great to deal with and can source parts and watches that are wanted. Give him a call he's only too happy to answer your questions. He's making a watch at the moment from some Unitas movements he picked up.
