The day we receive your watch, we notify you that it has arrived safely. Next, it is processed, photographed, and categorized for the proper diagnosis. Estimates can take as few as two days from the time it arrives. However, there are times we may need to reach out to the manufacturer to find availability and pricing of necessary parts. This can add some time to the estimation process. The moment we have all the answers, we reach out to you again with details about your watch repair for approval. No work is done without your approval.
This varies based on the type of watch, as well as the type of repair. A simple battery replacement, or common capacitor, can be turned around quickly, while a vintage restoration of a century old pocket watch can take several months. We do our best to give an indication of the length of time required to repair your watch when we call you with details about your estimate. Parts on order can add another layer of uncertainty to the timeline.
