We carry out watch repairs on both mechanical watches (wind-up or automatic) and Quartz watches (battery-operated). Repairs and maintenance work on Quartz watches include battery change, re-sealing and pressure testing as well as full servicing. Where other retailers have a 4 to 6 weeks' wait on a battery & re-seal for a Gucci, Cartier, Armani or Tag Heuer watch, Chimes will do it for you within an hour with the same guarantees and a saving!
An overhaul on a mechanical watch is much more meticulous and starts with a complete dismantling of the watch movement, which will be put through an ultrasonic clean. The parts are then fully re-assembled, lubricated with oil/grease before the watch is finally set on beat, timed, tested, regulated for precision and sealed or pressure tested as necessary.
Although we specialise in vintage and antique watches, we repair all types of watches ranging from high street brands to Rolex and Omega; from Cartier, Breitling and Longines to Gucci, Armani, Tag Heuer and all other brands.
We also have watch straps and bracelets for sale in a wide variety of sizes and colours to suit everyone's choice and budget.
