Servicing

Struthers Watchmakers offer specialist servicing and restoration for pre-1960s mechanical wrist and pocket watches.

We recommend vintage and antique mechanical watches are serviced every 3-5 years. This allows for any dust or dirt that has managed to work its way into the case to be cleaned away and dried oils to be removed and replaced. Regular servicing is the best way to keep your watch in good condition and reduce the risk of it requiring restoration and needing new parts making further along the line.
