Inherited a platinum perpetual calendar premiere Harry Winston

Before it was handed over to me , it has been submerged in 7ft deep swimming pool and fell off the wrist while the jump was made accidentally..

Now the dial is spoilt and even the original strap ripped from the lugs . Next stop would be the boutique where it deserves complete overhaul and new dial. I wonder how much would it cost and how long will it take ..hmm

Ouch, sorry to hear that! It's a gorgeous piece, hope it will soon be back in perfect shape and on your wrist! ;-)

Yikes, what happened to that watch? Seems like it has an interesting story to tell!

Well, as it is an inherited watch, I guess it is worth the effort.

Only if you actually want the watch.

Or are willing to sell it, although I don't know if its secondary market value would be equal to what HW would charge to fix it.
It's important not to let an expense be imposed on you just because someone gave you a present. If the same expenditure would get you a watch you like more, you should certainly consider that when making your decision.

It’s always painful to see this happen even accidentally

I would definitely look into how much it would cost to fix from HW.
If the cost doesn’t make sense, from a value perspective then I would consider 
third party customization to make it work and look unique. 
Good luck

That needs indeed a nice spa treatment.

Not sure what it will cost but the watch deserves it imho.

I agree , retrograde , perpetual calendar and platinum makes it special
