Hey guys, I own a old rolex passed down from my dad, got quite a bit of scratches on the glass. Recently went online to find, it seems that for my model, it uses acrylic crystal. On ebay, I am able to find sapphire crystal but to replace it, anyone know where to go? And also a rough price? Thanks in advance.

Jwwatch have alot of experience.

Noob always makes mistakes. Experts don't. At jwwatch, the watchmakers are experts, not noobs

Plus 10 points if they are passionate about their work too.

you can send to top hour too but i am not familiar with the quality of svc..

For jwwatch, the boss knows im a fussy guy so he will take particular care to baby my watches when its inside

For svc centers and boutiques, i can't be sure about the person who handles the end timepiece..

But i can tell you that from my experience, service ctr will not take extra care of your watches when its inside.

Your watch is like any other watch to them LOL

They got probably 5-8 technicians inside, and one will be assigned to your watch.
As for servicing the watch, have to see if you are heng or suay.

They won't do diagnostics as well. You have to tell them the problem.

Their watch service policy is aligned towards company's objective$, and not your objectives.


Btw, i have sent my older omega for bracelet link extension in their RWS boutique. My springbar got BENT when it came back.

Svc center is more expensive than jwwatch, for servicing

Its like going to family gp vs polyclinic gp

Unless its something jwwatch cannot do, then i will go to authorised service ctr

second that of what kohchris said. i got mine rolex fully serviced at JW. their service is top notch. but got to wait quite a bit of time to get back cos i think they have many orders to fulfill. last time i waited 4 mths...

but if u just want to change strap, then shd be ok.
Haha thanks...

tophour is not bad too i got my tudor serviced there. BUT, BUT, BUT, a BIG BUT, the boss always cannot deliver on the date he proclaimed. his shop is severely understaff, i think he is the only one doing it, therefore always delay de. i ever see a lady walk in ask him change strap what time can collect, he say 4pm end up the lady walk in at 4pm he have not even started on her job. the lady was so pissed that she argue with the boss.

Just to chip in that I was in the same situation as you a few years back, it was a datejust from my grand dad as well. I went with JW, and although it took awhile, the service is good, and slightly cheaper than Rolex Centre. Only thing is their opening hours can be a bit troublesome for working people.
