Hi all, Just a quick question. I have a couple watches that I need to get looked at for repairs and I have a quick question is it perhaps 'rude' to request that IF any old parts are replaced due to fatigue or failure or what have you that you would like that original old part returned with the watch upon completion of the repair? And if the watchmaker for any reason says he won't do it should you press the matter and possibly find someone else or just go ahead with it anyway? I've read conflicting information from various sites some say it is 'common courtesy' for a watchmaker to return the original replaced parts others say it its a lot to expect and if the watchmaker does not want to have to keep track of these broken parts then that is his choice. I havn't personally run into this, though a family member did have a watch replaced a few years ago and the original parts were not returned and when asked about it the watchmaker said the parts had already been disposed of and I would like to avoid that happening again since to me even if the parts are broken and no longer useful I would still be much happier if I could get them back and keep them with the watch as part of it's history even if it doesn't actually add anything to the watch. So I guess also tell me what your thoughts are? As watch collectors do you like it when old parts are returned to you? Even if you don't intend to keep them do you like at least being offered or having the choice as to what happens to the old parts?
