Thread: Tissot watch regulation needed South Birmingham

  1. #1

    Tissot watch regulation needed South Birmingham

    Hi,
    We need a Tissot Automatic regulating. My son took it into a watch mender in Stratford who confirmed it is running fine and just needs slowing down a bit. The quote to have this done was very expensive with no other work needed and so he brought the watch away. At the moment it is about +15 seconds a day.
    So is there anywhere local to South Birmingham/Solihull who could do this for a reasonable cost?

    Thanks for your help.

    If just regulating it's a 10 minute job. Bound to be somewhere or someone local who'll do it for £20 or less.

    A fellow forum member with a timegrapher may help out. I would but I'm in Glasgow.

    What strikes me as odd is the fact that the repairer said it was running OK albeit a little fast, but was reluctant to regulate it at a reasonable price. OP doesnít state how old the watch is or which movement it uses, is it one of the recent ones that are (supposedly) difficult to regulate? Or is the watch difficult to get into?

    Surely if it was an easy job the guy who looked at it wouldíve taken the chance to make a few quid and adjust it himself? If heís giving an expensive quote that suggests he doesn't want to do it or itís difficult, I wouldíve questioned this and established the basis of the quote and why it was high.

    As with all technical questions, the more information thatís given the better the chance of getting helpful answers.

    Fair and pertinent points from a man who's even more suspicious than me.... ;-)
