This morning I walked my baby twins to the Del Amo Fashion Center and dropped off my Invicta Corduba Automatic at Watch City. The lady didn't know the price of a service (the watch is running fast and is due after 4 years). I'm waiting for her call.
After dropping off the Invicta, I walked to two other watch stores to check their prices. The guy at Fast Fix said $80. I showed him my Seiko Orange Monster and he said it was a $500 watch. I told him, wrong. It cost me $175. He was shocked.
Then I walked the babies to Del Time. I showed the old man my Seiko and he said a service would cost $175. I told him that was the cost of my watch. He seemed genuinely shocked. He told me he couldn't get the watch as cheap as I did and that it was a $500 watch.
Are these watch dealers in the brick and mortar stores really this ignorant of the cheaper Internet prices? And just what does an automatic watch service really cost? Stay tuned.
