I purchased my father in law a used Datejust a couple years back as a Christmas gift. It stopped running a few months ago and he didn’t tell me, instead he sent it to be repaired at his local Joe blow jeweler who seems to have broke it even further at a cost of 300 dollars.
He finally mailed me the watch and I tried to send it back to be repaired from the place I purchased it. They said they can tell it has been opened and will not work on it.
The watch won’t hand wind and the second hand will tick forward and then backwards within the same 5 second window.
I am in the Bay Area and just looking to get this thing fixed. Any idea what could be the issue? Any recommended shops around San Francisco?
