Complete Professional Watch Restorations
If you have a watch, be it vintage or modern, that you would like to see looking and working like new again (or at least as new as possible), then a complete professional restoration might be just the thing!

We do everything we can to make your watch run like the day it first left the factory, including service to the case, dial, hands, movement, crystal, band, and more.

Overhaul
How do we do it? Each and every watch gets the VIP treatment from our master watchmakers. Your watch will be meticulously restored both mechanically and aesthetically.

What We Do:

We clean the movements manually, mechanically, and ultrasonically.
We repair and refurbish the movements as necessary, and have them electronically timed.
We rebuild or replace worn or defective movement parts, gaskets, crystals, and crowns.
And more!
It’s similar to our overhaul service, only more intense and time consuming. It might cost more, but when you’re talking about special pieces with emotional AND actual value, it’s worth the extra price.

Professional Watch Movement Repair and Restoration
We offer complete, professional repair and restoration services for mechanical and quartz watch movements, antique, vintage and modern, mid to high grade. We have thousands of watch parts in stock and will custom manufacture obsolete and unobtainable parts. All watch movements are manually, mechanically, and ultrasonically cleaned.

When restoration is chosen, watch movements are meticulously restored both mechanically and aesthetically and are electronically timed. This restoration service is more intense and time consuming than our regular overhaul services, so restorations are usually more costly, but well worth the added expense for valuable or sentimental pieces that demand the utmost attention to detail.

Movement Restoration Includes:

Movements professionally cleaned, oiled and replaced if needed
Movement customizing
Missing or broken parts replaced
Damaged parts refinished
Restoration of plating on plates, bridges, and parts
Parts manufactured to match originals as needed
Digitally timed and professionally regulated
Complete Watchcase Refinishing and Restoration
Having a watchcase that’s dinged-up or just not what it used to be is no fun. Thankfully, we can fix your case to make it shine like new. Whether you need a repair or full-on restoration, we’ll give your watch the VIP treatment, every time.

Scratch removal
Repairing bent case parts
Replacing broken, worn, or missing parts

Watch Dial and Hand Refinishing
The dial, or face, of your watch is arguably the most important part, because it’s the part that actually tells you the time. Without it, all the intricate gears and movements wouldn’t mean anything. That’s why it’s so important that we get it working and looking like new.
