Clock repair

Clocks and watches are often more than just a means to know the time.

Servicing Your clocks and watches in London

For many of us, they hold great sentimental value. A watch given to us during significant moments of our lives or family heirlooms that have been passed down for generations by loved ones.

So if something goes wrong with one, possessions of this personal value should only be repaired by specialists with the care, experience and attention of someone that knows that value.

Here at Watch Repair Picadilly, we offer the full services you might need, for old antiques to the more modern products such as Omega.

You may have been handed down a family clock that doesn’t quite suit the style of your home. But you might not want to part with such a sentimental piece and put it up for sale. That is why we offer to help create a custom clock that will be a timeless addition to your life. Clock cases can be restored or even replaced, creating an entirely new look while keeping the heart of the clock still. We could easily change the clock dials to a style you love. The face of the clock should be like any face you see every day in your home, beautiful.

Repairs, Cleaning & Polishing

Any problem you have we can fix. Whether its something simple like your watch no longer winding from the rotor. Or something more complicated such as the stem snapping.

We can help adjust the strap so that it fits comfortably or fit a completely new strap and help you pick one that suits your style and the watches.

FAQ’s

 

The price of fixing clocks can vary depending on the issues you are having. But we offer competitive prices at the highest standards. 

So get in touch for a free estimate so that we can help mend your broken clock.

The occupation specialising in fixing clocks and watches is called a clocksmith. They may also refer to themselves as horologists, as the study of watches and clocks is horology.

There could be several different issues that cause issues with your clock. Some more serious than others, especially with antique clocks. 

Sometimes he hands are simply pressed against the glass and cannot move. Sometimes there are serious issues that will need parts replacing. 

But, no matter what your problem is, it can always be fixed.

This depends on the watch. 

Modern wind watches will uncouple the mainspring when it is fully wound, meaning that there is no danger of overwinding. 

But older watches may not have this built-in and every watch has a different capacity for winding. 

When you wind a watch, you will feel tension build in the spring and more resistance as you wind. When there is a great amount of resistance, stop winding as this could snap the mainspring.

  • 5 star review  I have visited Watch Repair Piccadilly on five separate occasions over the past few years. The brilliant specialists there have given me first class service- ranging from a simple tune up to an extended restoration. From the most involved repairs to simple battery changes, I can not recommend them highly enough. Mr Santos runs the business according to an ethic of a bygone era, he offers a top rate service, for a fair price, and takes real pride in the mastery of his craft. You can trust this business with your valued possessions and be certain that you will receive them back in perfect working order, they stand behind the work they do which is why I’m a repeat customer.

    1 star review  I took a Seiko with a lot of sentimental value to the shop to repair as it stopped running. They informed me that the mechanism was obsolete and needed replacing. After not much more information on that regarding procedures I decided to trust the good reviews id seen earlier on google and went ahead with it. I collected my watch to see the dial had been completely chipped between the 11 and 1 o’clock markers. This was completely disregarded on collection and was given back to me without an apology and as though nothing had happened. I tried to see past this but later on that day I noticed that they had replaced the hands with much larger and what where in my opinion completely inappropriate ones for the small dress watch that is was. They drilled into the dial’s small day/date window to extend the width on the left side without my knowledge or consent in order to “fit” it in. The entire dial also now sits at about 2mm deeper in the case than it did originally too. What was a very special little watch to me has now been completely ruined thanks to the hands of whoever was involved in this. Originally I was offered a replacement watch of the same model and year, but in my opinion this is completely missing the point. I asked for a full refund of what I paid to have the repair which was received. I went with google and trusted the reviews for this but couldn’t have got it more wrong. I’ve never left a review on google before but felt leaving this info was somewhat important. I maybe should have read things a little closer and what exactly the 5* reviews where reviewing as it seems whoever was left in charge with my watch could probably really just about change a battery, let alone anything else. Truly terrible service and honestly wouldn’t recommend anybody to do business with unless you’re getting your strap resized. I think anybody would expect full knowledge on the complete procedures, and this would always include visual changes. I have included a picture of the watch taken shortly before I took it to the shop, and a picture of the watch the day It was collected. Don’t take the risk with this place if you care about your watch as much as I did!

  • 5 star review  I highly recommend this teeny tiny shop in Piccadilly Circus station. These guys really know what they are doing!! Thanks to both Joel and Jonathan for getting my watch fixed. I bought a mechanical watch recently and it had issues with the dates. The day I went to them they tried to look at it and fix on the spot but they said it would take longer and asked me to leave the watch with them. I left it with Joel at the shop in December and he assured me that they will fix it. It took slightly longer than expected for them to fix the watch during Christmas Holidays and parts but Jonathan was always available to respond to my queries even when the shop was closed and kept me informed during this period and was on hand to answer any queries - Jonathan is very passionate about watches as well. This is why it makes them different from other shops. I finally collected my watch yesterday and was so happy. Not just because the problem with the date was fixed but also the customer service they provided was impecable. Will definitely go to these guys in the future and I highly recommend them.
