This watch is just back from a long strange trip for service. The watch began its journey on May 6th, 2021. My jeweler has repair/service in Iowa. Thanks to COVID, one of the repair guys was sick for several weeks. Then there was the issue of getting parts. This was all complicated by a stroke that hit the poor guy while he was recovering from COVID. He's still not able to return to work. The watch was sent from Iowa to Minnesota but apparently the repair guy there was too busy or did not feel comfortable working on a chronograph movement. The watch ended up going to the Raymond Weil Service Center in New York. It now sparkles like new and is keeping perfect time. It's a good thing they don't charge mileage. It'll be on my wrist for this weekend.

It’s had some mileage put on it. I have always enjoyed Raymond Weil.
