ROLEX SERVICING AND REPAIRS
Graham, our Rolex accredited colleague and watchmaker, is now keeping well and is fighting fit.
Since coming out of the last lock down, we have been inundated with the number of Rolex watches being brought and sent into us for servicing, repairs, and restoration. Thank you.
Please remember, unless otherwise notified, all our Rolex servicing is accompanied with 24 months warranty for the work carried out.
Friday 27th August 2021. IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT. Until now, we have been able to offer fully accreditted servicing for most Breitling watches. The exception being watches with Breitling “In House” movements.
Sadly, with immediate effect, Breitling UK have withdrawn all accredition from independant accredited watch makers and service centres. This has been done with little advance notice and, to be honest with you, is very disapointing. It is not rocket science to realise, with Breitling UK service costs for their chronograph models starting from £600.00, this is going to hit the owners of such watches in the pocket.
I would also like to make you aware, that this is only Breitling UK. Not Europe or North America etc, as it would be illegal.
We are still able to service Breitling models that do not use “In-House” movements. Offering a 24 month warranty. and polishing of the case and bracelet as part of that service. However. if case parts such as crowns, pushers, riders or glasses are required, Breitling UK, and I stress Breitling UK, will not supply to anyone!
If you have any questions re’ your Breitling watch, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me personally, via the contact page.
Disappointingly yours, Martin.
