FAQ

Why does my watch need pressure testing?

Pressure testing of a watch guarantees the integrity of the timepiece against the elements.

We pressure test every time we have a need to open the watch, or when we believe the seal may have been compromised. Pressure testing is a standard procedure we undertake with virtually all servicing.

Being a Swiss-accredited service centre means we will work closely to factory-recommended standards.

Our pressure testing service comes with a 12 month warranty that the watch won’t leak.

How much does a watch restoration cost?

Every watch repair or restoration has it’s own specific challenges.

Without examining the watch, it is impossible to provide an accurate quotation. We find there are many perculiarities with vintage and antique watches – they all have their own history.

However, when we do, we provide you with:

  • An itemised list of the parts that will be replaced
  • The servicing tasks that will be completed
  • A list of options of additional aesthetic repairs and replacements e.g. polish the case, replace the band etc.
