Re: A Couple of Quick Suggestions
In Response To: A Couple of Quick Suggestions ()

: It's good that you have asked, as you will not want to trust the
: local jewelry shop with a vintage Monaco. Opening the case is
: itself a hazard, that can do damage to the dial if not handled
: properly. You will want to use an expert that is experienced
: with these chronographs and has the right tools to open the
: case, etc.

: Here are a couple of quick suggestions that you might want to check
: out --

: -- TAG Heuer, in Springfield, New Jersey, could definitely handle
: this; with any vintage Heuer, I believe that they would send the
: watch to Switzerland for the actual servicing.

: -- Grand Central Watch, in New York City, has an excellent
: reputation, and I believe that they have experience with the
: vintage Monaco chronographs; here's a link to their site --

: -- I have recently sent a couple of vintage chronographs to Orlando
: Watch Company for servicing and been very happy with their work;
: here is their information --

: Please let us know how it goes with this one.

Thanks for the tip, Jeff. I always get nervous shipping watches and its good to know there’s another choice within Florida for vintage service.
