As well as offering a full watch repair and maintenance service, our Master Watchmaker is also an expert in the restoration of any vintage or antique wrist or pocket watch. Watch restoration is our speciality. Our Master Watchmaker is dedicated to preserving and maintaining the original condition of any wrist watch or pocket watch.
Watch restoration requires specialist skills. Our Master Watchmaker understands the historical nature and individual heritage of every watch that comes into our workshop, and we are delighted to say our watchmaker has succeeded where many others have failed.
Our restoration service
Restoration is different to servicing. Restoration requires greater experience in the wide variety of mechanical designs employed throughout watchmaking history. Our Master Watchmaker has the specialist training, knowledge and experience to accurately restore any antique or vintage watch to its former glory. We have the expertise to bring old watches back to their best.
At W.E. Clark, we have an exceptional reputation for restoring vintage and antique watches, bringing joy to collectors and watch lovers all over the world. We are an award-winning business, voted Independent Retailer of the Year 2017 at the prestigious Lewes Business Awards. We are confident you will be truly amazed by the quality of our workmanship. From Benson and Waltham pocket watches to vintage Rolex watches, we can repair any antique or vintage timepiece. Our Master Watchmaker loves nothing more than to bring a family heirloom, such as a military or railroad antique watch, back to life again.
We can carry out any restoration work and we will always try to source original parts to maintain value, and so as not to interfere with the integrity of your timepiece. However, for rarer watches where replacement parts cannot be sourced, our skilled Master Watchmaker can make replacement parts to an exceptional standard to get your watch back to full working order again.
We will do everything we can to restore your timepiece, from servicing the movement, refurbishing the case, and replacing the glass, to dial restoration. Your watch will not only look like new again, it will keep time perfectly again too.
One of the very specialist and valued restoration services are of the dial itself. Over time the dial can fade due to exposure to sunlight and moisture trapped in the case. Restoration of a damaged dial requires great skill and must be approached with great sensitivity. An understanding of the beauty of the original timepiece is essential. We have forged a very strong and successful relationship with one of the UK’s leading dial restorers to ensure we can offer our customers the very best dial restoration service. Take a look at one of our case studies to see our dial restorer’s magnificent results.
We will take care of your wrist watch or pocket watch from start to finish, and carry out any watch restoration work with the utmost sensitivity and expertise. We are absolutely confident you will be delighted with the results, but for peace of mind we offer a minimum 12 month guarantee for all work undertaken. Our watch restoration service is second to none.
