How much would you charge for an ETA movement

Recommended Posts

Would need a lot more info, type of movement ( auto, quartz, mechanical..), calibre number...

 

There may be a lot of problems getting ETA parts and movements soon as Swatch ( who own most a lot of the Swiss watch brands) are supposed to be stopping worldwide distribution of parts.

I was doing so well with my watch business, I can see it fizzling away a bit with the Swatch situation. I put a new crown, pendent tube & stem in a Tissot this week. I accidentally ordered two of each part & was in a panic to phone them to be told they are "restricted parts, WHILST STOCKS LAST" & I would only be sent one of each anyway, because of the restriction. I guess thats to stop us stock piling and selling at a premium. RIDICULOUS!  But it is what it is. I've already scaled back future plans on the watch side until I see what the chinese come up with!

I would imagine you would need a fair old pot of swiss francs laying around doing nothing to even contemplate it!!!

That will be all the extra money they make from their overpriced delivery charges.

 

I also wonder if it might be a class action involving several wholesalers?
