I have a ingersoll automatic, this morning tried to wind it but the crown is stuck and it is not moving.

K2 uncle can save it?
What movement?

I think if CHina movement, Mr Goh not so willing to do. Best if Japanese.

They most likely do a movement swap, repair more costly

Greater range in dedicated boutiques. Discount more or less similar.

Ask yourself, future purchase likely same brand or different. If different, then shops like hr glass, having your records, may give you sweeter deals next time. No guarantee though, depends what you buy

Is there discounts in shops like hourglass or cortina ? Iíve previously bought a Cartier santos from Cartier and was told there was no discount so we paid the full price. So was wondering if hourglass have discounts then I might steer to them instead. Iíve long thought that there wonít be discounts for watches from iwc, Cartier , panerai etc etc

Definitely there is. Depends on relationship and model you qant to buy as well.

Discount eats into sales exec's commission. Smart one will try to close deal, others play who blink first. There is max discount they can give.

Can try the Chinatown shops to see if they will touch it for you. Might be possible. Doubt Mr Goh will do anything for you.

Discount is very different between brand boutique vs generic AD

Panerai boutique will throw in additional strap 1-2 depending on your negotiation skills and 1x free servicing if you have another pam watch.
