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!
Stefan is an excellent communicator. I was kept up to date on the progress of my service throughout the process. He also managed to complete the work thoroughly and to a very high standard far quicker than I expected. I would highly recommend Stefan!
I bought a vintage heuer carrera which was in a bit of a state and needed a proper TLC. I have never used Stefan’s service previously but decided to try him as I heard many positive things about him. I was so pleased when I got it back. He has done an amazing job! Thanks!
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.
Fast, excellent service and great value replacing a crystal and checking the movement – many thanks
Stefan did a really professional job when modifying my Speedmaster.
His price was reasonable and turnaround was prompt.
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.
Stefan is the vintage watch collectors watch maker. As a passionate collector himself he understand and respects the value of each piece and treats them and the collector accordingly. This coupled with his extensive experience makes for a winning combination and one that has served me well for some years now. Thanks for your help and advice and I wish you great success with the new venture. Regards Paul Gavin, Heuerworld.
Stefan is reliable, professional and extremely knowledgeable about vintage watch making. His attention to detail is second to none, exemplified by the quality of his own personal vintage watch collection. He has serviced many of my vintage Breitling Chronomatics over the past five years and always provides the highest quality of service, with fast turnaround and very competitive pricing.
