Before you contact me about any work please read this link first. https://thewatchbloke.co.uk/2021/08/17/update-17-08-2021/

If you want me to work on your watch I have to say I’m still deluged with work but it’s always worth dropping me an email to find out the current state of my service queue length. If it’s anything less than ridiculous and you’re patient then I may be able to get you booked in!


The prices listed below cover most popular calibres but if yours doesn’t fall into any of these categories please ask.

Some vintage and premium calibres may also have to be quoted for such as Rolex, Patek, some Omega and Breitling calibres or Seiko 6159, 6217, 6215 etc.

Movement Type Price
Manual wind date/no date shock protected £117
Manual wind date/no date non shock protected £127
Automatic date/no date £127
Automatic date/no date GMT £137
Manual wind chronograph date/no date £212
Automatic chronograph date/no date £242
Modular chronograph (Dubois-Depraz etc) £262
Alarm watches £172
Seiko 6138 twin register chronograph £172
Seiko 6139 single register chronograph £147
Premium brand* manual/automatic date/no date £162
Premium brand* Automatic date/no date GMT £192
Quartz date/no date £117
Quartz chronograph £172
Battery change from £35

The above prices are for a full movement service only, and don’t include replacement parts or return postage. Any additional work costs £35 per hour and after the first hour it’s charged to the nearest half hour.

If you don’t need your watch servicing but do need a repair or a new crystal fitting then please contact me for a price.

With quartz watches, especially newer ones it actually works out cheaper (a lot cheaper in some cases) to replace the whole movement with a new one as opposed to servicing the existing one but I’ll always let you know what your options are when you enquire.

Servicing a front loading watch, for example a vintage Seiko 6159-7001, a CWC W10, various Tuna models or whatever will add £25 to the service cost, this is purely because they can add up to an hour of time when on final test as every adjustment needs the movement uncasing then re-casing.

Return postage costs are listed on the FAQ page.

*Premium brands are the likes of Rolex, Panerai, Cartier etc.
