PARTIAL SERVICE

If your watch is in running condition, minor repairs such as replacing a damaged crystal or crown, battery service including water-resistance testing, and bracelet repair or bracelet adjustment can be performed without a complete service. I have almost two decades of experience. Your watch is in capable hands.

COMPLETE SERVICE

When your quartz or mechanical watch stops running, or otherwise frustrates you, it may be time for an overhaul. The watch movement is taken apart completely, cleaned, oiled and adjusted. The case and bracelet are refinished and gaskets are replaced. Water-resistance is tested for all watches rated 'water-resistant'.

RESTORATION

Family heirlooms, antique pocket watches, and heavily damaged or rusted watches often require attention beyond a complete movement overhaul. Designing and fabricating of replacement parts for ancient, rare, or extremely damaged watches takes time, but may be the only way to save your unique watch.

CASE & BRACELET REPAIR

Polishing, or 'refinishing' the watch case & bracelet is part of a complete service, but you may only need the bracelet repaired or the finish restored. Satin or high-gloss, two-tone, stainless steel or solid gold, I can bring back the appearance and function of your bracelet & case.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Many people repair watches, but I am uniquely qualified to service your Omega or other fine Swiss watch - over 18 years of experience including factory service and independent fine watch repair and restoration. I now provide fine watch repair nationwide through the mail.
I earned the title Swiss Watchmaker at the WOSTEP School in Neuchatel, Switzerland. In 2007, after repairing fine watches for several years, I received a full scholarship to The Refresher Course. This advanced course is designed to elevate an experienced watchmaker to the level of Swiss Watchmaker. The WOSTEP school is underwritten by the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry and fewer than 400 watchmakers have completed this program since the 1960s.
This certification means that I am among the most qualified watchmakers in the world to repair your Omega watch. I have nearly 20 years experience repairing modern and vintage Omega watches, including Coaxial Escapement watches. In 2015, I completed the Omega Watchmaker Evaluation and was awarded OWME Certificate #021. To achieve this Omega Level 5 certification, my skills and equipment were evaluated by Omega technical staff.
Watches should be inspected about every five years. Regular service ensures that the watch continues to function properly. A brand-new mechanical or quartz watch can run for five to ten years before service. I recommend wearing your quartz watch until the battery needs to be replaced. Have the watch inspected when the battery is changed. I offer full service quartz watch repair including battery replacement for most brands including Omega, Rado, Tissot, Longines, Hamilton and Baume & Mercier.
I do not sell watches. I do occasionally offer to buy watches. Please contact me for more information.
The case and bracelet are inspected and refinished, and the movement is taken completely apart. Every piece is inspected and repairs performed. The movement parts are cleaned in several ultrasonic cleaning baths. Once clean, the watch is assembled, oiled and adjusted.
Yes! I now offer some services with faster turnaround. Battery replacement with or without a water-resistance test can be performed and mailed back within one to two weeks. Please refer to the specials page for more information.
Yes, my business is insured by Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company, and all customers' property is insured for replacement value while in the workshop and in transit back to you. The workshop is alarmed by ADT and all watches are stored in a fireproof safe.
Repair time can vary greatly by brand and type of repair needed. Some repairs can be performed in two or three weeks, while complete overhaul service of a mechanical watch generally takes from four to twelve weeks depending on my workload at the time. A more specific timeline will be given with the estimate, and when approved, I will update you about the repair as it progresses through the workshop.
I strive to spend my time at the workbench repairing your watch. Please call 612-354-7496 and leave a message. New customers should fill out the contact form to reach me.
I am located in the Twin Cities - Minneapolis & St. Paul, Minnesota. I do not have a retail location. However, if you are in the Twin Cities, contact me to arrange a local dropoff.
