General question:
Do you guys service your watches regularly and if not, any prbs? How much is the service cost?
There are some good service centers in the U.S. and some watches should go back to Switzerland or Germany or U.K for service.

Some watches like diving watches Blancpain fifty fathoms can be very expensive service.

U bring up a good point some quartz watches or solar watches are very good. But as an example as an heirloom a mechanical watch could conceivably last millinium and quartz unlikely solar - I donít know.
