A Movado is a Movado no matter where it is purchased.There are a lot of counterfeits but usually easy to tell.
I have done a lot of watches in the last 40 years and I can tell you that factory service will ALWAYS try to get the watch back to original condition no matter what the customer wants. If you send it in for a new crystal you can bet your boots you will get more than a new crystal. All watch companies do this. Factory service is not what it used to be; I see a lot of watches coming back from factory service and the work is not always first-rate.
Your best bet is to find a local watchmaker you feel comfortable with and stick with him or her.
You will get better service and you get to speak with the person repairing your watch.
