I guess if they are the intermediary, they will handle anything that crops up (e.g. lost mail).. So there is some value add, no matter how minor.. That said, given the working attitude of most customer service these days, I won't be surprised if they don't really follow up, resulting in a prolonged service interval.

Thatís not what I understand
If Thong Sia set they will take care of the shipping,
If grey set, you have to pay for the shipping

But back to TS being the sole distributor, they should be responsible for all customer service regardless of the origin, like what all the Swiss brands are doing.

Besides Hour glass because I heard their downtime is damn long.

Mine just stopped moving 😰

Thanks in advance

Over the past 2 years i had sent in 3 pieces 2 x U1 and a U2 back to THG for servicing. About 2-3months wait on average. plus 1 year warranty after that.

Cheers :)

Yup i am a fan of their U series. But 3 of my Sinn are 2nd hand, unwilling to pay the price for a new pc now.
Anyway only can remember for U2 i paid about $350 for the servicing as the movement just kaput earlier this year.

Cheers :)

any big face lovers?

above 50mm, what are the popular ones?
and where do you get them?

so far, i only know U-boats, S-force.

arc13 21-10-2020 03:27 PM

No leh, patina is the same throughout the watch but the patina not aggressive partly due to bronze composition I think

Is brand new tudor blackbay 79230n or 79230r with steel bracelet priced at less than 4k legit now? or too good to be true. Saw it from carousell.

Sorry, not familiar with tudor pricing. I only know bb 58 is high demand, not sure about other model.
