WHO are we?
We are Classic Watch Repair. Whilst already quite established within the international vintage Rolex collector community through our band restoration services, this venture intends to service a broader base with a service center for all collectible watches and clocks, whether vintage or modern.

What sets us apart?
In co-operation with a new partner (he is camera shy),Mr. Sin, who is a second generation watchmaker, we now have access to a team of watch specialists that can provide a good watch service at very reasonable rates.
To be honest, watch repair is beyond fixing and oiling the movement, that is the easy part. We are a boutique watch repair outfit that can undertake repairs beyond the movement. We can do difficult repairs on the case, rebuild the band and repair or restoration of the dial as well. Don't claim your watch is scrap before giving us a final look!
Vintage is our expertise
We find it interesting that many customers come to us because the original name brand service centers simply refuse to undertake watch repair of their own vintage watches. The brand owners have their reasons, they have to guarantee that their repairs are up to standard as a brand new watch, but in reality the vintage watch owner simply wants the watch to run reasonably accurate. A non-running watch is useless to the owner.
