|OUR SPECIALITY - 17/1/2013
I am often asked which items I prefer to work on. I think I would have to say that I prefer to work on watches built in the 50's, 60's and 70's.
Not only were these watches generally manufactured to a very high standard, but we also carry a vast stock of spares from that time period to assist us with repairs...
|SERVICES WE DO NOT OFFER - 19/5/2011
Before sending your watches to us, please note that we do not value watches, restore dials or polish / refurbish / re-plate cases and bracelets.
We are repairers rather than restorers.
|PARCEL LIMITS - 31/7/2010
In order that we can help as many customers as possible each month, we ask that you limit the number of clocks / watches in any one parcel to a maximum of THREE. Further parcels can be sent once the repairs in the first parcel are completed and paid for.
|ROLEX / TUDOR watches - 17/3/2010
Due to the fact that, in common with the vast majority of horologists, we can no longer obtain spare parts for Rolex /Tudor watches, we will no longer accept any of these watches for either repair or servicing.
|WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND - 24/3/2009
Many of the long established major watch manufacturers, along with a whole host of new ones, are once again
manufacturing mechanical (i.e. not battery driven) watches as fast as they can. It would seem to be the "in thing" to wear such a watch at the moment! Considering their long life and reliability, it is also a very practical thing to do.
Most of us have such a mechanical wrist or pocket watch (maybe a treasured heirloom) tucked away in a draw somewhere, so why not get it out and let us service it for you?
|OLD FAITHFUL - 22/3/2009
Many clock and watch repairers around today repair only expensive or modern brands. We are different!
Even if your "Old Faithful" clock or watch is a very old one or a very inexpensive brand, we realise that such items often have real value to you, because of their association either with you or one of your relatives. We are happy to repair any such items, depending of course on the availability of spare parts, etc..
|'WATERPROOF' TESTING - 16/2/2009
We are no longer able to offer this service to our customers. All watches received by us will, of course, have their case seals renewed as instructed by the owner. However, the effectiveness of any such seals can no longer be guaranteed.
|NEW POLICY - 10/3/2008
Regrettably, we can no longer offer our services to 'Dealers', (those who buy watches and clocks purely to re-sell them) or other clock and watch repairers, retailers or traders, but will now concentrate solely on customers who actually make personal daily use of the items sent into us for repair.
|PLEASE NOTE - 3/8/2007
In an effort to protect the industry, we no longer carry out any repairs whatsoever to FAKE / COPY / REPLICA / COUNTERFEIT watches.
|WANTED! - 27/7/2007
We are always looking for donations of any old clocks, watches, parts or tools that are about to be thrown out - they are of very real use to us, no matter what the condition! We will gladly pay postage or arrange collection where possible. So please keep us in mind when clearing out that loft, ok?
|NEW WEBSITE - 12/6/2007
This is our NEW website, launched today. Please take a few moments to have a look arond and see the new features we have added for your benefit.....
