Stefan is a true professional and a master in his field .
He took a tired-looking 50 year old watch that I had received (of great sentimental value ) and discussed carefully with me what he suggested was required .He answered all my queries with thought and deliberation and my watch was returned looking and working like new ( or probably better ) at a very reasonable cost.
I cannot recommend him highly enough .Thanks Stefan for your help !

I just received my 32 year old watch, which I was given as a teenager, back from Stefan. I had originally sent it to him, as it is an usual piece that I have no longer been able to repair anywhere or find parts for. The hands had come loose and fallen and I could no longer wind it.
Stefan was unsure if he could repair it for me as he was also unable to find the parts.

A few weeks later and it’s perfect. He was even kind enough to replace the strap for me. Such a fantastic job. I would High recommend Stefan and his work.
Many many thanks!!!

Stefan has serviced two Universal Geneves for me now and has done an excelent job. Both watches were not running particularly great before I sent them and both times the watches came back running brilliantly. I would highly recommend

I was recommended Stefan by Seiko when they couldn’t service my vintage” Pogue “watch. He serviced the watch and fitted a new crystal, keeping me informed all the way. As soon as it came back I sent him my Tag Heuer for service and repair, again he kept me informed of the progress along with photos ( not for the faint hearted when you see your watch in pieces ) Stefan was great to talk to and will use him again in the next couple of years for my GMT 2 Rolex. Highly recommend going to Stefan. 5 Star

Stefan has serviced a total of five watches for me over the past few years, a mix of vintage Rolex and Omega. Each service was completed with incredible professionalism and attention to detail, with great sympathy to preserving the originality of the watches. He sent me updates whenever anything out of the ordinary was required and detailed photos and videos of his work. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Stefan’s services again when I next need a watch serviced. Thanks so much Stefan!

Stefan considered and restored two Omega watches from 1959 for me, which had great sentimental value, as I now die rapidly of cancer. I wanted a perfect job to restore the two watches and Stefan has done everything he can to ensure that I can pass these watches on to my sons in the best condition. One watch is a gold-cased Seamaster, one is a Constellation. The value of each is similar. Please, consider Stefan if you have a watch to restore. He is modest, extremely experienced and he will keep you informed as he works on your watch. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much Stefan. Sometimes life is not so much about money as it is about families and life. Your expertise is priceless.

I have a vintage 1960s Seiko Skyliner that belonged to my grandfather. It needed a service but Seiko UK told me that they don’t service vintage pieces & recommended me to Stefan. I took the recommendation & I’m very pleased that I did.
Stefan gave me a thorough estimate of the work & costs & kept me informed at all points of the process. When extra work was required he let me know & gave me the option to decline it.
I agreed to it & the result was amazing! I’m really pleased with what Stefan has done, the watch looks like new & the whole project has been smooth & drama free.
I heartily recommend Stefan & will definitely be using him again in future.

I discovered Stefan when I searched for someone to repair my Hamilton Bombardier watch. The winding mechanism had broken. Stefan repaired the watch quickly and the cost was less than his quote. The watch is keeping excellent time. If I need Stefan’s help again I will certainly use him again and recommend him without hesitation.

For my 21st birthday I was given an Omega Megasonic 720 Hz Tuning fork watch – quite a rarity it now seems.

It had stopped working ages ago and had been in a drawer for 40 odd years; I had asked around a few online specialists who all demurred, as they told me the parts are now no longer available.

I then found Stefan’s website and he agreed to have a look at it for me just in case it could be resurrected. Four weeks later I have a working, serviced and rather elegant Omega on my wrist. I highly recommend Stefan – a true craftsman.

Stefan repaired my 1954 Eternamatic
It was in poor condition working inefficiently with a broken glass and strap. The watch was beautifully repaired and communication was clear and the price was fair. I highly recommend Stefan for watch repairs.

Stefan has worked wonders on two of my watches; my Heuer 844-1 diver needed its second hand refitting following a drop as well as some work on the crown. Excellent job! It’ll be going back for a light resto and service next year. Similarly, my Hamilton Khaki Field automatic needed work on the crown tube and that was also sorted out to a very high standard. I can’t recommend Vintage Watch Fever enough. Great, knowledgeable service and competitive prices. Thank you Stefan.

On my 1960’s Omega Seamaster the winder had broken off . I was worried that nobody could repair it . Stefan has repaired it and now my watch looks as good as new . Stefan was very good at communication with photos showing me what was wrong with the watch and how he was going to repair it . The prices are very reasonable. I would highly recommend

My 63 thee yearold Omega manual wind up wristwatch had been in safe storage for a numberof years, it was still working but was running 20-30 minutes late per day. It was then sent to Vintage Watch Fever. When it came back and the parcel unopend the gold of the watch and bracelet was absolutely gleaming, the watch was running and showed the correct time to the minute also a new glass had been fitted. I can not reccomend enough the excellance of the work done to bring this old watch to nearly new.

My 48 year old wristwatch hadn’t worked for a number of years and also had a broken safety chain. As it has attached, great sentimental value, I was sad to learn the Seiko classed it as obsolete and couldn’t repair it, but they did recommend that I approach Stefan for help.
Stefan answered my initial enquiry quickly, the watch was sent to him for assessment, and I was so delighted to hear from him in a short time that he had managed to obtain the parts needed so my precious watch could be repaired.
I received my fully repaired and serviced wristwatch yesterday and was delighted to see it looking an working like new.
I feel Stefan is a craftsman of his trade and cannot thank him enough for working his magic.

Top class case work on my 1940s Breitling.

Transparent and fair pricing, good communication throughout and completed on time. Overall very good service….and the end result is a beautiful timepiece, perfectly restored from what was a very tired, very worn watch.

Many thanks!

An excellent service. Stefan was able to breath new life into a 1960’s watch which even the famous Swiss manufacturer failed to achieve.

Stefan took my rickety Universal Genève 104601/1 into his workshop and made it look like a novelty. He was knowledgeable, exacting, patient and skilled, and it came out as good as the day it was sold in the 1950s. Great pics kept me apprised of his progress and the price was fair. Hoping to learn more from Stefan in the future!

Excellent, 1st class service
I sent my Seiko Watch (which is over 50 years old) for repair it required a new winding stem and a crown. The service I got from Stefan was terrific. the watch was returned as if it was new. The timekeeping was accurate, in fact I have had the watch for almost a week and have yet to adjust the time. I would have no hesitation in recommend Stefan to all. Kenneth Gregson

I’ve only been a vintage watch enthusiast for a couple of years, but I was steered in Stefan’s direction by a forum and I’m so pleased I made contact. Stefan has serviced or repaired several of my watches and done a fantastic job every time. He is thorough, meticulous and enthusiastic about his work. An ideal person to trust with your watch! I recommend him wholeheartedly.

Stefan replaced the crystal on a diver watch of mine. I approached many watch repair shops and jewellers first and no one would do it – but for Stefan it was no problem. He sent me regular updates and photos of the process, including the pressure test. Very fast and friendly service. Price was reasonable and the work was excellent. I will be sending all my watches to Stefan in the future!

Since I was really young I had this passion to wrist watches in general and vintage specifically … I can call it my biggest fetish.
Unfortunately I could not afford to get any at the time until some years ago when I started to collect vintage Seiko’s and started later following some instagram accounts related to watches and vintage watches that’s where I knew “Ursmidur” the Famous Stefan. Who helped me to acquire the best of vintage timepieces and now because of him I can say modestly that I have a very nice collection .he is such a gentleman… He has one of the top collection you can only see the best of the best of Omegas and Heuers or even Breitlings in his own collection..
He is the top watch maker and dealer he knows how the pamper your watch how to service it with love..He has the passion for his work..He admires and appreciate each watch he got only the best.
I’ve been buying from him since around 5 years now I’m so happy I’ve met him..We are way more than a seller and a customer . I can say We are real friends we keep on asking about each other continuously we also have some friends in common with same interest and passion Hugo another great man..
It’s very rare nowadays to find genuine trustworthy People.. Well Stefan you’re a sweetheart God Bless your lovely family and may your VintageWatchFever Glow and Grow more and more you deserve it.
With all my love

I’ve been collecting, buying and selling vintage watches since the mid ‘naughties’ and have loved every minute of it. For me its important that my ‘watch guy’ has the same passion and in Stefan I have exactly that. It goes without saying that he services all my watches, and I have a number of family and friends that have become happy customers since we’ve known each other. I would recommend his work to anyone and everyone!

I was recommended to Stefan by an eminent collector of, and author on, vintage Heuer watches. What a recommendation it turned out to be. Upon meeting Stefan I realised he had serviced my IWC whilst working at Wempe on Bond Street many years ago. I am an avid collector and Stefan has serviced some of my most prized pieces from Rolex and heuer. A very nice guy, Stefan is concientious, meticulous and passionate about what he does, I cannot recommend him highly enough.

My experience with vintagewatchfever have exceeded my expectations all through the years, 1st with Stefan solo as a top vintage watchmaker and master watchmaker of my recent watches, the man is the guy to go for, my choice. From fully servicing all my watches with constant update and live checking on the service maintenance being done, you have it all.
I can remember also a remarkably unique restoration work on my Speedmaster 2998-61, the end result was just perfect as usual and the work done and constant update of the evolution was as high level as you can ever imagine.
Top materials are used, top oils, and original parts, I can tell you readers that after around 4 years my 2998 still keeps time of +2 secs a day, amazing ha?
Afterwords as vintagewatchfever company the back up on what to buy, the service maintenance schedules, the shipping, the timings, all is done with an extraordinary precision as a pro, and as when to ask for consultancy and on what watch to buy, Stefan is the man, the advices and remarks on what to go for and what not to go for have been crucial and fundamental on my collection, wouldn’t recommend anyone else and I don’t trust any of my watches to anyone else rather than vintagewatchfever and Stefan, try it on once and you’ll see what I mean, you will never change.
