Any true vintage watch collector needs a real trusted watchmaker! Our watches, most of the time, should be taken care of and restored. Sometimes real diamonds in the dust benefit from a little bit of polishing to get them as good as they can get, so, you can have your loved Vintage Citizen Watch serviced, polished, re-lumed and restored (as close as possible) the way it was meant to be in the first place. All our knowledge from the years of collecting and restoring vintage Citizen timepieces will be put to work to get the information needed for the delicate work carried out by VCW trusted watchmaker.
If you have a watch that needs work done, reply to this and I will contact you.
Of course a (free of charge) quote is possible only after inspecting the watch but here are some general fees, depending on complexity:
- Simple movement cleaning, oiling, servicing – 80 USD
- Complicated (chronograph) servicing – 140 USD
- Polishing to to original specification – 80 – 100 USD
- Hands re-lume (where possible) – 60 – 80 USD
- New rubber seals and water tested – 60 – 90 USD
Any additional part needed or part restoration is not included. Unfortunately there is a limited supply of original spare parts and there is no way of telling is a certain part will and when will be available. Also please pay attention that usually with old watches like these and limited parts at out reach we can do all we can do but we can not perform miracles. We will try our best to all we can do.
Any work done comes with VCW 6 months warranty.
All work is done by VCW certified watchmaker of “British Horological Institute”, inside European Union.
Important UPDATE: Starting from 2018 February we can only receive watches from inside European Union for restoration and repairs due to some complicated paperwork for temporary import. Thank you!
Also: Looking for Recommendations: Do you have a trusted watchmaker that can work on our beloved VCW? Let me know and I will contact him/her. Looking for a few worldwide options, in order to make a list. This, I think, will be a good thing to know for us. So… who do you recommend? Give me a few names and locations! Thank you!
