Best Watchmaker in England

“My business is buying and selling vintage Wrist Watches, after looking hard and shopping around for a decent watchmaker at a reasonable price to service my higher end watches, I saw Ian online and I’ve never looked back.

He provides a superb service and I’d probably describe the bloke as a magician.

If you are looking to get your watch serviced by a trustworthy and highly competent watchmaker please do not look any further.”

First Class!

“A work colleague recommended Ian and his company to me, as I had a pre-owned Breitling Navitimer to service. I visited Ian’s shop and the service I received was first class. Ian showed me his collection of Rolex watches for sale and eventually I traded my watch in and bought a Polar Explorer 2. Ian gave me a really good deal, and the watch I bought was in mint condition. Ian is currently finding a Rolex watch for my wife. I cannot speak highly enough of the service I received and wil not go anywhere else in the future.”

Great service and a price that puts the big jewellers to shame

“I was quoted over five hundred quid by Goldsmiths to fix by Tag. I could never have afforded to have paid that to repair my watch, so it sat without a crown in a box for about a year. I then came across Ian’s website and exchanged some emails, after which I sent Ian the watch. Ian did a great job, got the watch back to perfect working order for hundreds less than Goldsmiths quoted. Great service, and great to see an independent business taking such care in providing a good quality, high value service.”

Very impressive workmanship, like having a new watch

“I’ve always wanted a re-edition Carrera Chronograph since their release some ten years ago and had been thinking about getting one pre-owned as there are some available via eBay and watch forums but was worried about buying one where I had to spend more money getting it serviced and replacing straps or worse, one where it needed repairing. I had come across Ian’s website searching online and noticed he had one available, it was more than what I was hoping to pay for and certainly more than what you would pay on eBay, however it does come with a warranty and had also been serviced and refurbished.

After an exchange of emails, we agreed a deal and Ian sent the watch promptly, arriving the next day. I have to say I was impressed with the condition, it was like new, with genuine straps and buckle, the glass and the case unmarked, already several people have mistaken it to be a new watch. I’m very pleased with the watch and it was worth paying the extra money for peace of mind. I would be happy to purchase another watch from Ian in the future (pending available funds of course!).'”

Great service – incredible knowledge

“I’ve used Ian to service and repair many of my watches over numerous years, he has always done everything to the highest standards and I have had now qualms about entrusting him with my most expensive, £14000, watch…. something I couldn’t say about any other watchmaker. This guy is one of the few remaining true artisans in the UK.”

Highly Recommended!

“Ian serviced my Tag Heuer Aquagraph when I managed to fill it with sea water on a recent diving holiday. He refurbished the watch to new condition first class service I highly recommend him.”

– James, Manchester

Outstanding service!

“Ian came highly recommended to me by my colleague who has been a customer for many years. I contacted Ian to service my Rolex Daytona and from the first call the service I got was excellent. He called back when he said he would and gave me a quote before undertaking any work. I was able to post my watch to Ian and collected it in person from his impressive workshop in Darwen. I couldn’t recommend Ian enough!”
