WATCH BRACELET RESTORATION
Our restoration services encompass dents in watchcases, links, buckles and deployment clasps. A full or part re pinning of the bracelet is required when the centre link pins become old and worn and the metal links become floppy. This is commonly known as “stretch” and this can lead to breakage of the pins themselves potentially causing either damage to the bracelet or loss of the watch itself.
Over time grime and dirt builds up between the bracelet links and unless regularly cleaned it will form into a cement like abrasive substance which wears the metal away. The wear will increase as your bracelet loosens because the links have more space to move and grind together. This ultimately creates the stretching/floppiness that is common place. Generally 18 carat gold bracelets will need new pins and soldering work to make them like new again.
Bracelet restoration is a very cost effective way of safe guarding your treasured timepiece/family heirloom whilst ensuring the bracelet is given a new lease of life. Our work is guaranteed so many more years of use can be enjoyed by you and future generations too!

Our website has been developed to inform you of who we are and what we can do for your watch bracelet.
We don’t expect everybody will post a watch or take time to travel without at least some idea of potential costs. The Quick Assessment will let you see how cost effective it can be to bring your watch back to a “like new condition”.
By uploading photographs and/or videos of the watch where highlighted on the Quick Assessment page we will be able to view and discuss any work required and provide a rough estimate of cost.
After completing the return form, we’ll send you a box out in the post. Using this secure packaging, you can return the watch to us via the Post Office.
When your watch arrives on our premises, it will be tested for time keeping. We will report on its accuracy and if a service is needed our accredited watchmakers can take care of that too and the service comes with a 2 year warranty. The watch bracelet will be assessed and you will be contacted with a quotation for all and any works. If you are happy with the price an invoice will be raised and then we’ll get to work.
We will quote and obtain your permission before commencing on any work.
