Marathon Parts and Repair

Post by andrema » Sat Apr 10, 2010 4:02 pm

Does anyone know of a US based repair center for Marathon or a good source for Marathon parts (bezel, insert...etc.)?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks,
Mark

Try contacting Jim Madrid at maxmadco@comcast.net - he's the new Marathon service guy. You could also hit up Jack at IWW - he may still have parts lying around.

What are looking for? I sent Jim a email about replacing the tritium tube in my T-SAR and he said I would have to send it to Marathon :scratch: . They replaced both hands and the battery which I hadn't even noticed was dead for $35 plus $7 for shipping back thru FedEx. Not a bad total I thought.

Good luck, buddy.

I thought so as well. I had heard that replacing the tritium tubes can be a bit pricey so I was suprised when Dave at Marathon quoted me that price with the shipping :thumbsup: .
