    It is indeed, along the lines of "Back to the Future". Very retro, very cool.

    I went shopping today and bought 10, 32oz Grape Powerade's. I used your iFi bag from NY CanJam. The large size is great.

    Love it! I used to do all the small watch repairs for a good jeweller which included batteries. Saw many such digitals over the years.

    I got an estimate on a service for my Hamilton Jazzmaster Auto Chrono today. Its nuts, one place wants over $200 more than what I paid for the watch. Shopping around, but its not looking like something I would get done.

    You will run into that... To service a chronograph properly is a lot of work. It takes time to disassemble everything, clean it, and put it all back together. Many more affordable watches are cheaper to replace than service unfortunately. Even a brand like Tudor, when you send the watch for servicing, doesn't 'service' the movement, the just replace it with a new one.

    Many watch movements, like the 7750 in your Jazzmaster, is mass produced by machines. Essentially, someone hits "print" at the factory and everything else is automated. Machine time is much cheaper than human time.

    If its still accurate I can send it to Hamilton and their price is listed at $290, much better. I figured it being a 7750 base, its modified to an H21 it would help keep the cost down, I guess not.

    Reminds me of some of those funky square Oris watches

    What do they do for $290 "if it's still accurate"? Isn't that a bit akin to a mechanic to saying they will do a half price tune-up on your car if it is still running within spec? Like, who cares?

    I know some watchmakers will just add oil to the jewels and pivots and call it a "service" versus disassemble the movement, inspecting every part for correct tolerance and damage, cleaning every part, reassemble it, re-lubricating it, measure and adjust for accuracy and finally doing a pressure test.

    There is a big difference and paying the $290 may be more of a waste of money than anything.

    $290 for a full service, everything they do is listed on their site. I called them today, so I will either take the watch to them or ship it, the service center is about 45 miles away. I wasn't sure if the price was still accurate, the thing they sent me was from 2017 pricing. The watch is not running and the place that has it said $725 or so for a full service which included the broken mainspring and some other part.

    I don't mean to the be "that guy" but I don't believe they do all that for $290 higher end brands don't go to that level for more money. It is cheaper and faster to replacement the movement. What make me suspicious is that your watch has to be running within spec to the eligible for that service. When you disassemble a watch and put it back together, it has to be readjusted anyway.

    It can't be that they need it to be ticking (versus being accurate) as in what you sent they replace any parts needed.
