    Default Is servicing for JLC watches very expensive?

    Hi I am thinking of getting a Reverso but the salesperson at a local AD told me that servicing a JLC watch is extremely costly, much more so than a Rolex. When i said servicing, i mean the 5-6 years interval servicing of the mechanical movement of the watch.

    Anyone done servicing on their JLCs before can share roughly how much servicing costs?

    if I remembered correctly, a friend of mine done his servicing due to a loosen part from its movement.
    End up pay for almost $1k for it.

    Can a part just came off just like that?
    no hard drop no hard bump whatsoever.

    Sounds damn scary. I heard similar stories about servicing for JLC too. End up I went for a Sub instead. Safe choice.

    I've sent 2 Reversos for general servicing locally, and each time it came in just over SGD1k (inclusive of polishing). As I wanted archive extracts too, both watches were sent to Le Sentier for servicing rather than done locally. I think this is reasonable.

    Only downside was the lengthy wait. Took about 4 mths.

    Yes - it also depends where they do the servicing. I understand the complex job is sent to Geneva, thus the wait.

    JLC sends all watches for service to Swiss.

    That's why I understand why the servicing is so expensive as compared to others
