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!

Are you asking how much someone would charge you. Or how much you should charge a customer?

So many different factors. But my starting price for a tag service would be at least £80.

the biggest variable is if you buy a lose pack or pre-sealed. £80 - £100 depending.

Recent email received regarding the swatch situation.Attached File  Screenshot_2016-07-04-22-05-46.png   132.6KB   0 downloads

Basically depending on what happens parts might become available or not.

Not bigger, just braver! You don't have to be big to take on the big players, all Independants worth their salt know this ;-)

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

If your business depends on the outcome and you have the will, you just might succeed!

 

Oh yeah, and if the EU plays by the rules!

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?
