Restoration

Exclusively working with mechanical timepieces made before 1960, the Struthers can make new parts by hand for obsolete components and pride themselves in being able to service wrist and pocket watches turned away by other watchmakers.

Exclusively working with mechanical timepieces made before 1960, the Struthers can make new parts by hand for obsolete components and pride themselves in being able to service wrist and pocket watches turned away by other watchmakers. Restoration tends to cover watches that have suffered water ingress, have been dropped, or have been damaged by previous poor repair work. This sympathetic and time consuming process can require from a few day’s work to several weeks of restoration to bring each timepiece back to working order.
