Anyone have recommendations for a capable watch repair/service place?

I have a Girard Perregaux Sea Hawk ll Pro that has an in-house movement (out of warranty period long ago), the watch stops suddenly when used, second hand is extremely jerky, and the dial moves slightly when the crown is turned to adjust the time.

Brought it into Hour Glass (they’re the service center for GP in Singapore), they quoted me $1370 for a full service plus a one year warranty after the service.

I’m just wondering if they’re any other places or watchmakers that you guys use that can competently repair an in house movement? Or should I just bite the bullet and send it in to Hour Glass?

You guys are really a wealth of information here, and thank you so much for the help!

Hmmm, let me break it down for you.

If the movement is a in-house movement, suck thumb go back to AD / Official service centre for repair as parts replacement maybe required.

If the movement is a common ETA / Valjoux based movement, then you can approach any watchmaker

Like K2 - Mr Goh (if you live in the east)
https://i0.wp.com/i21.photobucket.co...Namecard-1.jpg

Or Top Hour (if you are in Orchard)
304 Orchard Rd, Unit #01-50 Lucky Plaza, Singapore 238863

Or Chuan Watch (If you are in Bugis area)
390 Victoria St, #01-51/52 Golden Landmark Shopping Complex, Singapore 188061

Or Unique Vintage Watches (Nick) (If you are in Chinatown area)
335 Smith St, #01-128, Singapore 050335

and the hidden and not so publicize Rules of Restoration @Geylang (If you are there for 1hour exercise :s13:)
1016 geylang east ave 3 #04-153

Would anyone consider a Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time as a daily driver? Just curious about its robustness...thanks!

Few people would associate the trinity brands’ watches with robustness.

Maybe not doing justice to the brands and maybe because of the prices for these watches, few owners would want to test the limits.

Maybe you can help debunk this (false?) perception by getting the VC as an all round beater.
