WATCH REPAIR & SERVICES
SERVICE is our speciality
Many watch repairs can be completed by our experienced technicians on a while-you-wait or same day basis in our brick and mortar retail branches. Some jobs however, such as servicing and repairs on prestigious brand watches which need specialist equipment to complete, need our more specialised and separate workshop facilities and expertise.
Below is a list of the standard services we provide on any make of watch. If there is something more specific you require please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. Our prices for servicing and repairs varies depending on the particular watch and we can provide a free of charge no obligation estimate to you before any work is undertaken.
WATCH Repairs - while-you-wait, or whilst you shop.
Watch Battery & Reseal - We can expertly fit batteries to any make of Quartz watch. We use genuine Swiss made Renata batteries, as are originally fitted in many high quality watch brands. We stock a vast range of sizes and types so can usually fit a new battery while you wait or within a short timeframe. Also, for watches which are used in water we can re-seal, pressure test and guarantee cases waterproof for your peace of mind.
Case & Bracelet Refurbishment - Any watch can get scratches just from daily wear and tear. We can clean and carefully polish your watch's case and bracelet to bring them back to excellent condition and look like new again. This can be done as part of a full service or standalone if the watch just needs a bit of attention.
Bracelet Alterations - For watches with metal bracelets, links can be removed or fitted to make the watch comfortably fit your own wrist. We can offer this service even for watches purchased from other shops and Jewellers - Many major retailers use our expertise and refer their own customers to us for this kind of job.
Watch Glasses - Glasses can be renewed or replaced when scratched, dull or damaged. We stock hundreds of round glasses in 0.1 mm size increments in both Plastic and Mineral Glass and we can also supply special shaped glasses to order.
Winder Buttons - These can be renewed when worn or lost, and broken stems replaced also.
Waterproofing - A pressure test can give you peace of mind at it will confirm that your watch is still water resistant to the manufacturers specification once a repair has been carried out. This is usually done after a new battery has been fitted, as part of a service, or occasionally when other case repairs are carried out such as a replacement glass, pusher or winder.
