Includes traditional watch repairing practices. The complete disassembly of the watch. Spring bars replaced with new appropriate ones to fit the case. Case cleaned and where agreed, polished. Almost invariably a replacement acrylic crystal of the correct profile and strength. Winding crowns are usually replaced with the correct type and material, except some special models which are left alone. Steel case back marks reduced. Dial and hands cleaned of loose dirt only. Incorrect or damaged hands replaced with correct period pattern ones. Movement taken apart and inspected so that badly worn components can be replaced, again with period parts. One part (setting lever spring) is not available and is replaced with a pattern part. 3 small parts in particular are prone to breakage. Two of the wheels are likely to be very worn or abused, and so on. The watch is cleaned, reassembled and lubricated. The watch movement is then timed outside of the case in 3 positions and the whole re-cased and tested as a complete watch to ensure proper hand clearances and movement to case fit. Work done is given a 2 year guarantee. Repairs to or replacement balance not included.
This may not include servicing of special watches such as the English divers model or the military issued Smiths watches, they are by quote only depending on the level of work entailed. When you decide you want to have your watch serviced by us, then you can pay in advance or during or at the end of the work, or give a service as a gift so long as the postal and payment address requirements fill the checkout requirements.
Part jobs such as crown replacement, crystal fitting will form now on only be possible on watches we are servicing or have serviced and will be at a reasonable price.
