Anyone know a decent watch maker/repairer?
I have a watch which needs a tiny bar part made to fix the bracelet back onto the face, but most places don't really have the skills anymore, so its 'a new strap' which is a few hundred quid. That seems daft, so would like a proper old school watch repairer to have a look. Cheers.

I am a member of a couple of watch forums, and I have not (yet)used them personally, but if you want a place you can visit easily, these guys usually get good recommendations:

I use SJV on Lower Marsh, Steve is old school, honest and they fix them there so the prices are old school too.

Check this link out from way back,

I would recommend SDV @ 100 Lower Marsh too, they always give a free quote before going ahead with the repair. All repairs to my watches and clocks have been completed in a week of me giving them the OK. Their rates are reasonable to cheap. Go visit and make up your own mind

I can add my name to those who recommend SDV. Picked up my watch this week after having the bracelet shortened and the glass replaced. Great jib and I thought reasonable price too.

The place I had put it in with for a quote threw in a full bracelet valet making it a much better deal than they had originally offered, so hopefully that will work out fine. Useful to have this info going forwards though, thanks all.
