It’s always been more than a watch. These are your most precious timepieces we’re talking about, so we show every watch the loving care and attention it deserves. 

The experienced watch technicians in our shops can rewind time on your favourite watches. Simply bring your damaged watch to a local Timpson shop, and we can offer everything from replacement watch batteries to professional watch refurbishments. 

Better yet, offer high-quality watch repairs on top brands such as Omega, Rolex, Seiko and Tag Heuer, along with Apple Watches and all the other most popular brand manufacturers. 

In some cases, our shops can replace watch batteries the same day or even while you wait - but this depends on the availability of parts and how busy the shop is!

Advanced watch repairs delivered by our Excellence Centre

The watch technicians in our shops can complete simple watch repairs (such as replacing watch batteries and watch straps), while more complex watch repairs are sent to our Watch Repair Excellence Centre. 

This accredited state-of-the-art facility houses our most skilled, experienced watchmakers, capable of repairing and servicing the most complicated watches out there. 

They complete every repair with meticulous attention to detail, so these watch repairs take a little longer to complete. For example, replacement watch batteries can take up to 7 working days, while a full mechanical service can take up to 21 working days.

What our customers say

Frequently asked questions about Timpson watch repairs

Which watches can you repair?

Our skilled technicians can repair all kinds of modern and vintage watches. If you can’t find your required service online, please either contact us or visit your local Timpson store for further assistance. Some of the many watch brands we repair include:

  • Adidas
  • Emporio Armani
  • Breitling
  • Cartier
  • Citizen
  • Daniel Wellington
  • Fossil
  • Michael Kors
  • ORIS
  • TAG Heuer
  • …and many more

Is it worth servicing a watch?

Absolutely. We recommend getting your watch serviced every 3-5  years. However, this can vary depending on usage and how you care for your watch.

How long do your watch repairs take?

Lead times vary between repairs and can depend on the availability of parts. Battery and pressure tests can be done within 7 days, a quartz service in 21 days, and a mechanical service in 35 days. 

How much do watch repairs usually cost?

Watch repair prices depend on many factors, such as the watch brand and the extent of the damage. As a rough guide, a basic quartz service starts from £40, while a service to a mechanical timepiece starts from around £115.

Is it cheaper to repair or replace a watch?

Buying a new watch can often be far more expensive than repairing the issues that need attention. However, this can depend on the movement type (with Swiss and mechanical movements being really high up there!), plus the age and brand of the watch and the damage sustained. 

What happens if you can’t fix my watch?

We operate on a no fix, no fee basis. In the very unlikely event our technicians are unable to repair your watch, you will not be charged for this service.

What repairs can be done in my local Timpson shop?

Our in-store technicians can do simpler fixes, such as quartz services, battery replacement and changing links. More complicated issues will be sent to the experienced technicians in our Watch Repair Excellence Centre.

What does a watch service involve?

Our watch technicians will check for signs of damage, rust or wear and tear, stripping the watch down completely to oil, grease and clean all the moving parts. All these parts, except for the dial & hands, are put into a watch-cleaning basket and then into an ultrasonic cleaning machine. The watch case and back are cleaned in a separate ultrasonic tank. The watch is then re-assembled by a similar reversed process with all relevant parts being greased and oiled to the manufacturer's requirements and guidelines.

Where should I send my watch for repair?

Simply complete your order online, then print out your order confirmation to include with your watch. Please send this package to: Timpson Watch Workshop, 10th Floor, Mander House, Mander Centre, Wolverhampton, WV1 3NB. Please don’t send the watch in its original box, as this may not be returned to you. 

Do your watch repairs come with a warranty?

Yes, most watch repairs and battery replacements come with a 1-year warranty, while TAG Heuer watches include a 2-year warranty.

Do I need to book an appointment for in-store watch repairs?

No, Timpson stores operate solely on a walk-in basis, so there’s no need to contact us or make an appointment in advance.
