Does anyone know anywhere other than the Fossil group where spare parts for their stable of watch brands can be sourced?

 

Generally you have to have an account and sell one of their brands but maybe there is someone out there that has access.

 

I need a glass for an Armani watch but it has a specific transfer on so it cannot be anything other than an original.

 

Any ideas?

J&S are just sourcing it through someone else as well and as good as they are they haven't been able to help me with my last few requirements.

Once again Cousins have very limited supplies.

 

Fossil really do seem to run a closed shop when it comes to spare parts.

 

I've managed to source it but it means going round the houses!

Some of these fossil type jobs you would be better turning away. The last fossil job that I slowly got drawn into like this, it could only be done by fossil ( it was a Michael Kors). Unbelievablely they did the job within two weeks and did not charge me. But I would turn it down if a similar job came into my shop.

Do you mean it could only be done by Fossil because they won't supply you the necessary parts to fix it yourself?

It had started as a simple movement repair/replacement. Just could not get the ridiculously flimsy hands to stay on. Plus due to the raised crystal set dial, there was virtually no space between the hands. So sent it to fossil. They replaced the whole head.
