High quality watch repair and servicing done, on the Stamford premises, by properly trained watch repairers with decades of experience.
Personal, qualified, experienced and secure, award-winning service.
When we service a watch, we do the job absolutely the right way,
taking every piece apart and cleaning them individually that way we have faith in our
work and stand by our guarantees.
We have excellent watchmakers, each is fully trained. That means a minimum of three years at college being taught how to do the job properly; followed by proper experience at the bench, by the side of someone more experienced, before they even touch a customer’s watch.
Our watch workshop is in Stamford where we perform both minor and major surgery and repairs to watches.
We have traditional watchmakers working here “at the bench”. Between them they have many years’ experience of working on watches with almost every kind of fault and with every kind of complication.
When we service a watch, we do it correctly. This is done by taking every piece apart, inspecting them and then individually cleaning them. Most watch repairers stop there. We continue by following the correct BHI service and restoration techniques. If there are worn pivots, we can burnish and re-jewel. We will fit a new mainspring, the exact size and strength of the original. If parts are required we will explain which, why, and how much will it cost. This meticulous approach to watch repair and restoration gives us faith in our work, and allows us to stand by our guarantees.
We can replace hairsprings and make new balance staffs. We can re-pivot almost any broken pivot. Such jobs are time consuming and demanding but everything is possible, right here in Stamford.

The mainspring of a modern (after about 1950) automatic watch.
The spring has no outside hook but is Y shaped to grip the barrel with friction alone, so the spring cannot be “over wound” and break. The modern automatic watch is designed to run fully wound. It takes about ten hours active wear a day to keep a watch fully wound, hence the increased use in recent years of automatic watch winders.
