    I wanted to share before and after pictures of my WL5113 which never had been serviced since I got it in '99 and now it's like new again.

    It was up till '08 my only watch until I got a Carrera 360 and then it became the one I would take on vacation, so it didn't run on a daily base anymore.

    I used the shipping options on the TH site which beats going to an AD. I included the quote I got which was no surprise to me with regards to the oil in the movement.

    Edit; just noticed I have a tritium dial and the replacement hands are luminova. At least I still have the old hands as they were included when the watch was returned.

    Pricing is ex VAT.

    Looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing, I have an S/EL to send back at some point and I was advised to ask them to quote for everything and see what the cost is. Some things are stupidly cheap so it's worth finding out.

    I agree, 6 hands on the WG Carrera 360 I recently serviced were € 136, I expected it to be much more.

    That's very fair...
