Watch Repairs

One of the main services we offer at Southern Watch is watch making. We do wrist watch repairs to all brands of watches including Pulsar, Lourus, Seiko, Hallmark, Citizen, Tomato, Guess, Rotary, Tisot etc old and modern. We offer a full and comprehensive watch repair service that includes the dismantling of all the working components of the watch, scrutinizing each and every part and then servicing or replacing all faulty watch parts in order to get the watch working  properly again. We import and source all our own watch spares and are known to carry the biggest and most extensive stock of watch spares in the industry. Where servicing is required the watch movement is stripped to component level  after which each and every component is cleaned in a watch part cleaning machine, reassembled and all moving parts oiled.

Watch Movements

 We also offer a watch movement replacement service were our watchmakers will assess the fault and replace the movement with an original movement. In some watch brands that use specific watch movements like non strip /non serviceable movements a good quality Japanese or Swiss replacement movement will be used. If the cost of repairing a movement of a faulty watch is more than the repair and servicing cost a new original or good quality Swiss or Japanese replacement watch movement will be used. We import our own watch movements from all over the world and keep an extensive stock list.
