Watch Services

Watch Services Offered Locally, Nationally & Internationally

I am based in Kendal, Cumbria but have a client list that spans the globe thanks to the connectivity of social media.

Repair & Servicing

Watch servicing is an art, and the general rule of thumb is “every five years” for a fine watch. I am happy to competitively quote for watch servicing.

I offer a full repair service with a free quotation before any work commences. I have a very transparent working practice, and if you wish, you will be kept up to date at all stages of the repair, this is especially useful when the watch is an older model or pocket watch and parts may be hard to source.

Please use the contact form in the first instance.


The following is a guide but can be used to give you a rough idea of expected costs. 

Unexpected costs can arise when parts are found to be worn when servicing

Custom Builds

It is often the occasion that you need something a bit special or specific to a vision you have in mind. In the world of watch making anything is possible with enough planning and foresight.

I am happy to discuss any project that you have in mind from a customisation to a complete unique build.
