Watch Servicing and Repairs

A mechanical watch contains on average 150 parts, some of which experience high forces on a continuous basis. To keep the performance of your watch at its best, it will need to be regularly serviced: usually every three to five years. If you’re unsure about when your watch needs servicing or have a problem with your watch that needs repairing, we can help. Our state-of-the-art manufacturer-certified service centre is equipped with the best tools and personnel to assist with the service of your watch. We can undertake:

  • Watch servicing
  • Watch repairs and refurbishment
  • Watch battery replacements
