Default where to get a watch cleaned up?

I have a couple of watches that I need to get cleaned up. Scratches, scuffs, etc.

Any recommendations in the Dallas or Sachse area? Thanks.

I took an old Rolex I had to a local jeweler in Highland Village and they did a great job for $75.00. I'd bet almost all reputable jewelers in your area are very familiar with the process. Bring in one first and see how it goes.

My local jeweler did not do a good job on my Tag and it only had light scuffs. I will not be going back there.

I have an Archimede that is slightly more scuffed and I'd like to get that fixed (along with my Tag as well).

Nothing high end, but, I'd still like it looking nicer. Mind sharing the name of the jeweler?

I have had good luck with Govberg. Internet online so you ship the watch. My Cartier and Rado both came out nice.

Another for Nasr. They've been cleaning and changing batteries on our Tags for 10 years.

I use Time TEch (Kevin) for all my watch services. He's a Porsche guy as well.

I tried the Nasr Brothers at Firewheel (closer to me) and was not impressed. They mangled one of my bezels trying to get it off with brute force...then tried to pass off the damage as being not bad. I was so furious.

Thanks for the new suggestion, Sam.
