We are a leading vintage watch restoration service in the UK. We repair and restore antique Hunter pocket watches from all over the world. Hunter pocket watches often feature ornately designed casings and we are experts at refurbishing and reviving the beauty of these timepieces, as well as repairing any complex movement within.
It is likely that the name Hunter stems from the fact that this style of pocket watch was developed for fox hunters to protect the watch face against shocks, but the sophisticated Hunter style soon became a favourite for everyone from upper-class gentleman to soldiers and industrial workers. The clever clam-shell design has inadvertently been the saviour of many pocket watches, which has protected against the natural wear and tear of the glass face, not afforded to many other open-faced pocket watch styles.
Still it requires much searching by collectors to find good working specimens of the antique Hunter pocket watch. Our Master Watchmaker knows everything there is to know about sophisticated Hunter pocket watch collectibles and is dedicated to the repair and restoration of their superb mechanisms and charming cases.
