Vintage watch glass replacement
Each watch tells a unique story and this is especially true of rare vintage watch repairs. Badly damaged glass should always be replaced to protect the interior of the mechanism. Failing to do this might affect the value of your antique watch. We offer pocket watch glass replacement and vintage watch dial restoration should damage occur.
Vintage watch bezel replacement
The bezel is the ring that surrounds and holds the watch glass in situ. On a dive watch, the bezel rotates and is used to read elapsed time. The bezel can become tarnished, scratched, damaged or worse fall entirely off. When this happens, Repairs by post to the rescue. A faded bezel can be an appealing part of the vintage watch aesthetic; it shows evidence of its age and journey. If your vintage watch repair needs a replacement bezel this shouldn’t impact on the value of the watch.
Vintage watch dial restoration
Over-time the watch dial, face, digits and hands can become tarnished, corrode or worse break or fall-off: water entering the watch case, a broken watch glass, or leaky battery can cause any of these un-sightly issues. We can help fix these issues and get your Vintage watch looking new again. Dial restoration is the renewal of the watch dial by specialists takes approximately four weeks. It is an intricate process and involves cleaning and preparation treatment. After this is complete we apply the text and number as the final touch.
