Swiss pocket watches are renowned the world over. They are an integral part of society status and have a reputation for making a stylish statement. At W.E. Clark Watch Repairs we specialise in the repair, restoration and refurbishment of all Swiss pocket watches.
Swiss pocket watches are defined as such by the Swiss government as having a Swiss movement when the production is at least 60 per cent manufactured in Switzerland. The watch industry imposes a stricter parameter, with an 80 per cent minimum Swiss production cost required before labelling a pocket watch of Swiss origin. Those that are manufactured completely in Switzerland can be termed ‘Swiss made’ and are timepieces of optimum quality and mechanical excellence.
While the age of many antique pocket watches can be valued by a serial number, most antique Swiss pocket watches were not given a serial number. The age of most antique Swiss pocket watches is determined by the style of the movement and the way the pocket watch is constructed. Our Master Watchmaker is an expert in the repair and restoration of all Swiss movement types and has extensive experience in identifying the age of any Swiss pocket watch.
