On their way to servicing, prior going onto the market

How much is it going to cost to get five watches serviced? About fifteen hundred dollars if you are lucky.
Not enough since done the only way it should be.. ..the proper and correct way… and doing honor and justice to these historical time pieces..
The shipping costs back and forth with dedicated „ jewelry and watches „ courier service comes on top of the service ( parts ) cost.
But the outcome is worth the efforts :)

Immediately remembered my Hamilton Sunset, which could determine the sunset time at different airports in the world... beautiful but absolutely useless function :) As a result, I spent most of my life flying with an ordinary watch, the quarz AVI Hurricane stayed with me the longest time
