Parts Supply

Where possible I always use genuine watch parts relating to your brand and movement. With vintage watches it can be difficult to source genuine watch parts and these are sometimes unobtainable. You will be informed so you can decide if we source suitable generic parts to complete the watch repair.

Turnaround

I endeavor to return your watch to you as quickly as possible. My current Service time is around four weeks from receipt of your watch to desk. Parts can prolong this should you require any obscure parts. A four day bench test is necessary before I return the watch to you this is so I monitor the watch for any problems. For smaller jobs I aim to return your watch within two to three weeks.

Pressure Tests

All water resistant watches will be pressure test to a depth of 60 metres, during the watch repair.
