Watch Repairs

Whether you just need a replacement battery for your watch or a full service and overhaul we can help.


Watch Servicing

Increasingly in this day and age most modern watches need to be returned to the appointed service centre for repairs and we would certainly recommend that customers do this to ensure that their watch is maintained to the manufacturer’s original specification.  Often though older models are disproportionately expensive to repair if sent to the manufacturer or they may be declined if parts are obsolete.

What then?  Well, we have seen a marked increase in the number of watches left with us for servicing which are of great sentimental value but would otherwise languish unworn in a drawer.  We charge much less for a service than most of the major watch houses and our experienced technicians have seen an upsurge in demand for the repair of watches by Omega, Longines and Rolex.  We would be very happy to discuss your requirements.

We have also seen an increase in enquiries regarding the repair of antique pocket watches.  Our pocket watch specialist has over 35 years experience and is able to make many replacement parts by hand including balance staffs and hairsprings.

Minor Repairs

We fit watch batteries to most watches and aim to do this whilst you wait.  Need a watch strap?  No problem.  We stock a very large range of  leather watch straps by Hirsch and a replacement can be fitted to your watch in minutes.  We are also happy to undertake watch bracelet alterations.
