Modern and Vintage Watchmaking Services

As an independent watchmaker, I specialize in the repair, service and restoration of luxury high end watches, both modern and vintage, covering top brands like Rolex, Omega, Heuer, Breitling and more. I offer a personalised and tailored service to all my clients and will take the time to review and diagnose what level of repair and service your watch may need. You will receive regular updates and pictures as your watch goes through the various phases of repair, service or restoration to ensure an optimal result.


For a personalized, free of charge quote – all you need to do is send me some initial pictures so we can discuss the work and your preferences and some initial costs.  If you are happy with the cost, you can then send the watch to my private PO box where I will carry out a full diagnosis and final recommendation.

My background

My name is Stefan and I am a professionally trained watchmaker originally from Iceland.  I trained as a watchmaker in Denmark and have spent over 15 years working in house for luxury brands including Breitling, Wempe and Chopard. Since starting up my own watchmaking business, I now specialize in all main luxury brands including AP, Breitling, Cartier, Heuer, Omega, amongst others.

I have been a watch enthusiast for many years and have a deep appreciation for the craftsmanship and artistry that goes into creating a quality timepiece. I have a collection of vintage watches and enjoy the history and mechanics of each one. I have a passion for finding rare and unique watches and am always on the lookout for new pieces to add to my collection.
