BENRUS VIETNAM MIL-W-3818B HACKING HISTORY

Published on: April 30, 2014
Categories: BENRUS, HISTORIC, HISTORICAL, INFORMATION, MILITARY, VIETNAM

Founded in New York City in 1921, Benrus Watch Company was an American company created by three Romanian immigrant brothers. “BENRUS” was a combination of one of the brothers first and last names: BEN”jamin laz”RUS”. by 1923, the Lazarus brothers acquired the trademark Benrus from the Swiss federal office for intellectual property. Originally the company watch headquarters were located in the Hippodrome building on 44th street in Manhattan were watches were “put together” and the bulk of the actual movement manufacturing in a Benrus factory in la Choux de Fond, Switzerland.

 Due to the fact that all Swiss watches and parts were controlled by Swiss laws and cartels or combined companies, parts makers provided Benrus with parts and, in some circumstances ebauche – which they then assembled or upgraded. to overcome this fact and the fact that swiss parts and assembled watches were being penalized through US Customs duties, Benrus would found a factory in Waterbury CT where they made the cases for Benrus watches and then in late 1950 to early 1960, Benrus opened factories in France, St. Thomas and the Virgin Islands.

PERHAPS THE GREATEST YET LEAST RECOGNIZED BY THE PUBLIC WRIST WATCH ON THE MILITARY FIELD AND OFF IS  THE SINGLE CASE BENRUS VIETNAM ERA HACKING WRIST WATCH. THE BENRUS SINGLE CASE WAS BUILT ON AND IMPROVED ON THE 1928 WYLER SINGLE CASE SYSTEM. OF THE 4 MAIN STREAM WATCH COMPANIES SUPPLYING MILITARY WATCHES AFTER THE BENRUS INITIAL CONTACT, EVERY ONE COPIED THE BENRUS DESIGN.

A ONE YEAR TOUR OF DUTY “IN COUNTRY” IN A PLACE CALLED “THE NAM” MEANT A YEAR OF SWELTERING JUNGLE CONDITIONS AND MONSOONS AND DUST AND RIVERS AND STREAMS AND RIVERS AND DUST AND DIRT AND SWELTERING HEAT AND WATER AND DIRT AND WATER.. AND ACTION AND FOX HOLES AND BUNKERS AND JUNGLES… YOU GET THE POINT.., .

GOVERNMENT ISSUED WATCHES HAD TO BE DESIGNED BETTER THAN EVER. BETTER THEN WWII OR KOREA …

OF ALL THE COMPANIES THAT SUBMITTED PROTOTYPES WITH THEIR OWN CASE & MOVEMENT DESIGNS WAS THE BENRUS WATCH CO.  IN FACT, BENRUS WOULD MAKE/PROPOSE THE LARGEST CONTRIBUTION: A SINGLE CASED TWO PIECE STEM DESIGN THAT RESISTED THE ELEMENTS, WAS DURABLE, AND WAS SURE TO LAST. BENRUS THUS BEAT THE COMPETITION HANDS DOWN & WAS AWARDED THE FIRST CONTRACT FOR 10,000 MARINE CORPS WATCHES THAT WOULD SEE ACTION IN 1965 WHEN THE FIRST COMBAT TROOPS HIT THE BEACHES TO BEEF UP THE AIR FIELDS THAT HAS EXPERIENCED SAPPERS…..

BY THE TIME THE WAR HEATED UP AND OTHER COMPANIES BEGAN SUPPLYING WATCHES, THEY WERE CHEAPER PLASTIC CASED THROW-AWAY WITH   7 JEWEL MOVEMENTS BECAUSE THE US CONTRACT SIMPLY DEMANDED A WATCH THAT WOULD   LAST TWO YEARS IN THE FIELD WITH NO SERVICE.

YET BENRUS CONTINUED TO PRODUCE AND MAINTAIN THE HIGHEST DEGREE OF QUALITY IN PARTS, DESIGN, AND WORKMANSHIP WITH THEIR SEVENTEEN JEWEL  MODELS

THIS BEAUTY IS JUST THAT, A BEAUTY,.   THIS WONDERFUL HACKING MILITARY WATCH EXCEPTS ALL TYPE OF STRAPS , SKIN, LEATHER, HIDE, AND STEEL BRACELETS.

NOTE: During the Vietnam War, Benrus won THE FIRST military Contract over Bulova and the rest of the US companies. For part of this contract, Benrus would buy Japanese Seiko Movements…

Production steadily expanded throughout the 1940’s with a boost during WWII when Benrus manufactured watches for the various servicemen and woman who served as well as nurses and other professions. Like most other watch makers, timing devices for use in bombs and weapons were also produced.

By the 1950’s, Benrus designers went to work fashioning top grade,luxurious watches in Gold and with Diamonds. Due to their strong relationship with the Swiss cartel, and their market share after the war, Benrus was able to invest in the latest high quality Swiss and German watch movements and ebauche movements.

Designs from 1947 to 1959 were the best ever completed by Benrus and Benrus watches from these same years are the most sought after by Collectors.

THE SINGLE W/BEZEL SYSTEM 1
THE SINGLE W/BEZEL SYS 2
THE VIETNAM WAR SINGLE CASE SYSTEM
MILITARY WATCHES WERE BENRUS MANUAL MOVEMENTS

THE BENRUS  SINGLE PIE PAN CASE WITH LUG/BEZEL HOLD DOWN SYSTEM WAS CREATED TO  COMPETE WITH THE 1957/56 BULOVA 23 JEWEL SELF WINDING SUNBURST  [AUTOMATIC]  WATCH!.

BUILT AROUND A  25 [ 2 MORE JEWELS ] JEWEL ADJUSTABLE AUTOMATIC   MOVEMENT, WITH  A SOLID STEEL SINGLE CASE WITH STEEL BEZEL   SYSTEM [OUT CLASSED  BULOVA SCREW BACK ] AND A NEAR  IDENTICAL SUN-BURST DIAL [ CARVED NOT GRAVED IN FOUR METALLIC COLORS] BENRUS OUT CLASSED THE MORE POWERFUL RIVAL BULOVA.

YET, WHAT NO ONE REALIZED AT THAT VERY   TIME, SPECIFICALLY BENRUS OR BULOVA, WAS THAT IN THREE YEARS THE BENRUS SINGLE CASE SYS WOULD WIN BENRUS THE FIRST 10,000 WATCH CONTRACT FOR THE VIETNAM WAR.

FURTHER ON, TO MAKE THIS POINT,   IS THE FACT THAT BULOVA PROTESTED AND LOST IN THE FAVOR OF BENRUS.

IN FACT THAT SILE CASE WITH LUG/BEZEL WAS REPLACED BY BENRUS WITH THE PURE SINGLE CASE SYSTEM. THAT SYSTEM WOULD BE ADOPTED BY THE US MILITARY AND EVERY WATCH MADE FOR THE VIETNAM WAR, NO MATTER THE COMPANY   SEIKO/WESTCLOX, BULOVA HAMILTON, FROM STEEL CASES TO PLASTIC THROWAWAYS, THEY ALL HAD SINGLE CASE SYSTEMS THANKS TO BENRUS!

IMG_1665.JPG (64111 bytes)

THE PURE  SINGLE CASE BENRUS SYSTEM DATES FROM 1959 THROUGH 1965- THOUGH  IT’S DESIGN  WOULD CONTINUE UNTIL 1971!.   THE SINGLE CASED BENRUS HAD A ONE PIECE CASE, A DROP IN MOVEMENT WITH SPLIT STEM & SEALED LONG STEM TUBE CROWN AND WAS SEALED BY THE CRYSTAL ALONE.

[YES, THE WYLER SYSTEM HIJACKED BY BENRUS!]

BENRUS DESIGNED THIS SYSTEM BY COPYING THE WYLER SINGLE CASE SYSTEM WITH OUT THE WYLER OUTER BEZEL. THOUGH MANY OTHER    MANUFACTURERS HAD PRODUCED SINGLE CASE DESIGNS, THE REASON WHY BENRUS CREATED THIS SYSTEM WAS THE 1960 RUMORS OF LARGE US GOVERNMENT WATCH CONTRACTS FOR THE UPCOMING VIETNAM WAR. WHEN THE US GOVERNMENT RELEASED SPECIFICATIONS IN 1961 BENRUS HAD ALREADY RELEASED A WATCH TO THE PUBLIC WITH HALF THE SPECS.

THEN WHEN THE US GOVERNMENT UPDATED THE SPECS IN 1962, BENRUS WAS READY WITH A PROTOTYPE.WHEN BENRUS SUBMITTED THEIR DESIGN IN 1963 THEY ALSO SUBMITTED STUDIES OF THOSE REAL SALES AND USE OF THEIR DESIGN –LIKE THIS 3 STAR.

NOT ONLY DID BENRUS EXCEED US SPECIFICATIONS THAT WOULD SURVIVE JUNGLE WARFARE IN VIETNAM, BUT INTRODUCED SEVERAL VERSIONS, INCLUDING THE FIRST NON-SERVICEABLE THROW ALWAYS.   THUS, IN 1964, BENRUS WAS THE FIRST MANUFACTURER TO RECEIVE A MAJOR CONTRACT WITH THE US MILITARY TO PRODUCE THE FIRST VIETNAM MILITARY WATCHES. OVER 10,000 WATCHES FOR OVER 300,000. [1964 DOLLARS].

1943 ARMY NAVY E AWARD OUTSTANDING
PRODUCTION WAR MATERIALS

THE FOLLOWING IS THE US GOVERNMENT REPLY TO THE FAMOUS BULOVA LETTER  THIS WILL BE PART OF APPRAISAL –ALLOW SEVERAL WEEKS FOR LINK– IT HAS THE IMPORTANT INFORMATION AS TO THIS VERY BENRUS

B-153564, MAY 4, 1964
TO BULOVA WATCH COMPANY, INC.:
FURTHER REFERENCE IS MADE TO YOUR LETTER OF FEBRUARY 20, 1964, PROTESTING THE AWARD OF A CONTRACT TO BENRUS WATCH COMPANY UNDER REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL NO. AMC/A/36-038-64-490/NS), DATED FEBRUARY 7, 1964.

THE RECORD SHOWS THAT IT WAS DETERMINED BY REPRESENTATIVES OF THE AIR FORCE, NAVY AND ARMY, THAT SPECIFICATION MIL-W-3818A, DATED MARCH 12, 1956, REQUIRED REVISION TO ACCOMPLISH THE FOLLOWING RESULTS:

A. REDUCE THE VARIETY OF GRADES AND TYPES OF WATCHES.
B. ASSURE CONSISTENT QUALITY OF ITEMS.
C. ELIMINATE TESTING REQUIREMENTS OF ONE YEAR AND SUBSTITUTE IN LIEU THEREOF A GUARANTEE PROVISION.
D. INCORPORATE A NEW CASE DESIGN.

ACCORDINGLY, THE SPECIFICATION WAS FORMALLY REVISED ON OCTOBER 17, 1962, AND IS IDENTIFIED AS MIL-W-3818B.

SUBSEQUENT TO THE APPROVAL OF SPECIFICATION MIL-W-3818B, ALL SOURCES ON THE PREVIOUS QUALIFIED PRODUCTS LIST, UNDER SPECIFICATION MIL-W 3818A, WERE INVITED BY LETTER DATED DECEMBER 6, 1962, TO MAKE APPLICATION FOR THE SUBMISSION OF THEIR PRODUCT OF FRANKFORD ARSENAL FOR QUALIFICATION TESTING. UPON RECEIPT AND APPROVAL OF THE APPLICATION AS REQUIRED BY PARAGRAPH 104 OF THE PAMPHLET ENTITLED “PROVISIONS GOVERNING QUALIFICATION,” SAMPLES WOULD BE AUTHORIZED TO BE SUBMITTED. THREE FIRMS SUBMITTED APPLICATIONS AND SAMPLES DURING 1963, NAMELY, BENRUS WATCH CO., INC., LONGINES-WITTNAUER WATCH CO., AND MATBEY-TISSOT WATCH CO., INC.

HOWEVER, BENRUS WATCH CO., INC., WAS THE ONLY SOURCE THAT SUCCESSFULLY MET THE REQUIREMENTS FOR APPROVAL. THEREFORE, THAT FIRM WAS FORMALLY NOTIFIED ON SEPTEMBER 16, 1963, THAT THE SAMPLES SUBMITTED WERE APPROVED AND THAT ITS PRODUCT WAS LISTED ON THE QUALIFIED PRODUCTS LIST FOR SPECIFICATION MIL-F-3818B. THE OTHER TWO SOURCES WERE NOTIFIED BY LETTER OF NOVEMBER 21, 1963, THAT THEIR SAMPLES DID NOT MEET MINIMUM SPECIFICATION REQUIREMENTS.

ON THE BASIS OF MILITARY INTERDEPARTMENTAL PURCHASE REQUESTS FROM THE MARINE CORPS FOR A TOTAL OF 10,849 WATCHES, THE CONTRACTING OFFICER EXECUTED A DETERMINATION AND FINDINGS DATED FEBRUARY 2, 1964, AUTHORIZING NEGOTIATION UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF 10 U.S.C. 2304/A) (10) AND ASPR 3.210.2 PROMISED ON THE CIRCUMSTANCES REPORTED AS FOLLOWS:

“A. THIS WATCH IS A QUALIFIED PRODUCT AND THE TIME REQUIRED FOR TESTING WOULD UNDULY DELAY DELIVERIES.

“B. THE INTEREST OF THE GOVERNMENT REQUIRES ASSURANCE PRIOR TO AWARD THAT THE PRODUCT IS SATISFACTORY FOR ITS INTENDED USE AND NO OTHER MEANS OF QUALITY ASSURANCE IS AVAILABLE.

“C. AMPLE SOLICITATION AND OPPORTUNITY WAS AFFORDED THE CLOCK AND WATCH INDUSTRIES, RESULTING IN ONLY ONE QUALIFIED PRODUCT, NAMELY, BENRUS WATCH CO.’

THE REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL WAS ISSUED ON FEBRUARY 7, 1964, WITH A CLOSING DATE OF FEBRUARY 24, 1964, TO BENRUS WATCH COMPANY, AS A SOLE SOURCE PREMISED ON THE FACTS SHOWN ABOVE. BENRUS QUOTED A UNIT PRICE OF $28.28 EACH FOR A QUANTITY OF 10,849 WRIST WATCHES OR A TOTAL COST OF $306,809.72. ON FEBRUARY 20, 1964, AN AMENDMENT WAS ISSUED EXTENDING THE CLOSING DATE TO FEBRUARY 27, 1964. THE PROCUREMENT ACTION WAS SYNOPSIZED, FOR SUBCONTRACTING ONLY, IN THE COMMERCE BUSINESS DAILY DATED FEBRUARY 17, 1964. AT YOUR REQUEST, YOU WERE FURNISHED A COPY OF THE REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL ON FEBRUARY 13, 1964.

YOU ALLEGE, IN EFFECT, THAT FRANKFORD ARSENAL IS ATTEMPTING TO CIRCUMVENT CURRENT REGULATIONS IN THE AREA OF COMPETITION AND METHOD OF PROCUREMENT AND HAS FAILED TO CLARIFY AMBIGUITIES IN THE SPECIFICATION, PARTICULARLY WITH REFERENCE TO THE GUARANTEE PROVISION AS SET FORTH IN PARAGRAPH 3.21 OF SPECIFICATION MIL-W-3818B, DATED OCTOBER 17, 1962.

YOU ALLEGE SPECIFICALLY THAT FRANKFORD ARSENAL, WITH KNOWLEDGE OF YOUR INTEREST IN THE PROCUREMENT OF BACK-TYPE WATCHES, CIRCUMVENTED PROCUREMENT REGULATIONS BY NOT OBTAINING COMPETITION.

THE RECORD SHOWS YOU WERE AFFORDED AMPLE TIME TO SUBMIT YOUR PRODUCT FOR QUALIFICATION TESTING AND POSSIBLE INCLUSION ON THE QUALIFIED PRODUCTS LIST. HOWEVER, YOU DID NOT SUBMIT YOUR PRODUCT UNTIL FEBRUARY 13, 1964, A LAPSE OF 14 MONTHS FROM THE DATE APPLICATIONS WERE ORIGINALLY REQUESTED. THE PRODUCT YOU SUBMITTED WAS REJECTED ON MARCH 11, 1964, FOR THE REASON THAT IT FAILED THE SHOCK TEST PERFORMANCE PRESCRIBED IN PARAGRAPH 4.8.9 OF SPECIFICATION MIL-W 3818B IN THAT OVER A PERIOD OF 20 HOURS THE WATCH GAINED 1 HOUR AND 22 MINUTES.

THIS FAILURE WAS CONSIDERED A SUFFICIENT CAUSE TO REJECT YOUR PRODUCT AS NOT QUALIFYING FOR INCLUSION ON THE QUALIFIED PRODUCTS LIST. SINCE ONLY ONE OF THREE OTHER SOURCES WHICH SUBMITTED THEIR PRODUCT FOR QUALIFICATION TESTING SUBMITTED A PRODUCT WHICH PASSED ALL THE REQUIREMENTS OF MIL-W-3818B AND WAS APPROVED FOR INCLUSION ON THE QUALIFIED PRODUCTS LIST, THE DETERMINATION BY THE CONTRACTING OFFICER THAT IT WAS IMPRACTICABLE TO OBTAIN COMPETITION, AND THAT A CONTRACT SHOULD BE NEGOTIATED WITH BENRUS, APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN PROPER.

YOU FURTHER ALLEGE THAT THE PROPOSED PROCUREMENT SHOULD BE CANCELLED AND THAT THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD PROCEED ON AN ADVERTISED PROCUREMENT TO ASSURE ADEQUATE COMPETITION.

AS INDICATED ABOVE, COMPETITION COULD NOT BE ATTAINED BECAUSE ONLY ONE SOURCE WAS ON THE QUALIFIED PRODUCTS LIST AT THE TIME OF THE INITIATION OF THE PROCUREMENT ACTION, AND SO FAR AS WE ARE ADVISED NO OTHER PRODUCT HAS SINCE BEEN QUALIFIED. IN OUR DECISION OF AUGUST 9, 1961, 41 COMP. GEN. 93, IT WAS HELD THAT WHERE THERE IS ONLY A SINGLE SOURCE LISTED ON THE QUALIFIED PRODUCTS LIST, THE PROPER METHOD OF PROCUREMENT IS NEGOTIATION IN LIEU OF FORMAL ADVERTISING. WE SEE NO VALID BASIS UPON WHICH A DIFFERENT CONCLUSION MAY BE REACHED IN THE INSTANT CASE.

IN ADDITION, YOU ALLEGE THAT THE GUARANTEE PROVISION OF PARAGRAPH 3.21 OF MIL-W-38188 IS UNREASONABLE IN THAT IT REQUIRES THE CONTRACTOR TO BE LIABLE FOR THE REPAIR OF WATCHES THAT FAIL TO MEET ALL SPECIFICATIONS FOR A PERIOD OF TWO YEARS, AFTER ACCEPTANCE BY THE GOVERNMENT, WITHOUT ANY LIMITATION OF REPAIR RESPONSIBILITY WHATSOEVER.

SINCE THE THREE SOURCES THAT SUBMITTED THEIR PRODUCTS FOR TESTING DID NOT TAKE ANY EXCEPTION, OR REQUIRE INTERPRETATION AS TO THE GUARANTEE PROVISION IN THE SPECIFICATION, IT APPEARS THAT THOSE FIRMS WERE READY TO MEET SUCH PROVISION AND THAT THE PROVISION WAS CONSIDERED REASONABLE. ANY EVENT IT DOES NOT APPEAR THAT THE GUARANTEE PROVISION IS GERMANE TO YOUR PROTEST OR TO YOUR FAILURE TO HAVE A WATCH APPROVED FOR INCLUSION ON THE LIST.

AS TO THE ALLEGATION THAT BENRUS WATCH COMPANY IS NOT A MANUFACTURER OF WATCHES BUT ONLY IMPORTS CASES AND SELLS WATCH MOVEMENTS FROM FOREIGN SOURCES, WE ARE ADVISED THAT BENRUS POSSESSES MANUFACTURING FACILITIES IN THE UNITED STATES AND SWITZERLAND WHICH ARE UTILIZED IN THE PRODUCTION AND ASSEMBLY OF WATCHES AND, THEREFORE, QUALIFIES AS A MANUFACTURER UNDER ASPR 12-603.1.

THE BENRUS PROPOSAL SHOWS THAT IT IMPORTS THE MOVEMENT AND DIAL SETTING, DIAL STEM AND SPRING BARS, AND THAT THE CASE, CROWN, ATTACHMENTS, PACKING MATERIAL AND JEWEL BEARINGS (TURTLE MOUNTAIN ORDNANCE PLANT) ARE ALL DOMESTICALLY PRODUCED. ITS COST DATA INDICATES THAT THE COST OF THE DOMESTIC COMPONENTS IS CONSIDERABLY IN EXCESS OF 50 PERCENT OF THE COST OF ALL COMPONENTS, AND THEREFORE THE ITEM MUST BE CONSIDERED A DOMESTIC SOURCE AND PRODUCT UNDER ASPR 6-101 (D).


IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES WE FIND NO VALID BASIS FOR YOUR PROTEST, AND IT IS THEREFORE DENIED

HISTORY OF VIETNAM SINGLE CASE WATCHES

THIS FAMOUS BENRUS U.S. GOV. ISSUED MIL-W-3818 WAS THE SECOND ISSUE OF THE BENRUS PROTOTYPE  THAT ALL SUBSEQUENT MIL ISSUE WATCHES WERE CREATED BY– EXCEPT THAT THE MOVEMENTS OF OTHER COMPANIES THAT FOLLOWED WERE 15, THEN   7 JEWEL THROW AWAY.

VIEW THE GOV SPEC SHEETS ON THE  MIL-W-3118B WITH DETAILS OF REQUIREMENTS.

IT WAS BENRUS WHO SUPPLIED AND/OR IMPROVED THE GOVERNMENT   DESIGN, INFORMATION AND SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE MIL-W-3818. TAKE A LOOK SEE AT THE PHOTOS AND INFO WE SUPPLY.

THE UPDATED SINGLE CASE WITH [OUT SEPARATE BEZEL] TWO PIECE STEM AND CROWN, ORIGINALLY PIONEERED BY WYLER WATCH CO IN THE LATE 1920’S, IS THE EXACTLY LIKE THE ONE IN THIS OFFER.

THIS IS NOT A COINCIDENCE.

BULOVA PROTESTED THE BENRUS AWARD. IN A FILED COMPLAINT  TO THE MILITARY CONCERNING THE BENRUS AWARD OF THE FIRST EVER VIETNAM MILITARY WATCH CONTRACT.  

AFTER BEING A MAJOR SUPPLIER FOR THE HACKING A-11 [AND OTHERS] IN WWII AND THE KOREAN WAR, BULOVA WAS OUT OF THE HIGHER PROFIT MIX UNTIL THE WAR HEATED UP AND THE GOV LOWERED THE STANDARDS AND CASH THEY PAID OUT.

A GIANT LEAP IN JUNGLE BUSTING SINGLE CASED WATCH SYSTEMS

A ONE YEAR TOUR OF DUTY “IN COUNTRY” – A PLACE CALLED “THE NAM”, MEANT A YEAR OF SWELTERING JUNGLE CONDITIONS AND MONSOONS. GOVERNMENT ISSUED WATCHES HAD TO BE DESIGNED BETTER THAN EVER BEFORE.  OF ALL THE COMPANIES THAT SUBMITTED PROTOTYPES AND ASSISTED IN DEVELOPING CASE & MOVEMENT DESIGNS WAS THE BENRUS WATCH CO.  IN FACT, BENRUS WOULD MAKE/PROPOSE THE LARGEST CONTRIBUTION: A SINGLE CASED STEM DESIGNED TO RESIST THE ELEMENTS, BE DURABLE, AND TO LAST. THUS BENRUS BEAT THE COMPETITION & WAS AWARDED THE FIRST CONTRACT.

BENRUS WAS ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH THIS ENDEAVOR BY BUILDING A CIVILIAN WATCH THAT HAD NEARLY ALL THE CASING DESIGNS THAT THE MILITARY DESIRED LONG BEFORE THEY WERE REQUESTED. THOUGH  NEAR EXACT FEATURES FOR THE BENRUS MIL-W-3818 CAN BE FOUND IN BENRUS  MODELS DATING FROM THE LATE 1950′, IT WAS THE 1960 SINGLE CASE SYSTEM THAT WON THE BUCKS,,,

UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE all watches offered by GSW have been SERVICED. Some required REPAIR AND RESTORATION! Normal Servicing of Mechanical Watches by an EXPERT PROFESSIONAL will run between $180.00 to 580.00, depending on the complication of the movement and that is WITHOUT parts that may be required.

RESTORATION is a separate service from SERVICING and may include CRYSTAL, DIAL, HANDS, CASE, LUGS and BAND.
