http://vintagewatchrestoration.com/ got my Wakmann triple date chrono running properly, so they should be able to service yours.

It's not a model I follow. Look at ebay sold listings for an idea.

Thank you again. My concern is really not the value but the integrity of the repair shop. It was my fathers who died when I was a boy and I want to wear it again. My dad returned from WWII with a Rolex for my mom and his sisters and brother, and I believe he also bought the Tri-Compax during the war as well. He was in North Africa, Sicily,Italy, France and Germany. Not sure where he got it. I know he was also in Switzerland for a short time towards the end of the war, from what little I know, the Tri-Compax was available in 1944. I imagine the watch can be dated by the serial number on the back. I notice that many photos blank out the last digits of the number. Is there a good reason for doing that if I post a photo of the reverse?
