    Uk watch repairs service Omega

    Hi can anyone recommend a decent watch smith who can service omega chronographs and vintage omega movements, no need for external refinishing just internal? I know I could send to Omega but was hopefully looking for someone a bit more reasonable price wise as I have a few pieces that need seeing to. The watchsmith I've used for the last 10 years who worked from his home workshop has unfortunately retired ? Any recommendations will be appreciated.
    Tried Andrew Charles but wasn't that impressed with their work had to send back 3 times plus ended up having to regulate the movement myself in the end as it was still loosing over 40sec per 24hrs.
    Many thanks

    On TZUK, a chap called Duncan from Genesis gets recommended a lot. No experience myself.

    I've previously used Swiss Time Services, who are an approved Omega service centre, for my SMP. Very good service, lower cost than Omega and I'm sure they will do only the work you request.

    Whilst I've ever used any of them, the following independents get regularly recommended on the TZ-UK forum.

    https://genesiswatchmaking.co.uk/

    Web Watchmaker | Watch Repairs | Home Page

    Watch Guy | Watch repair blog

    https://thewatchbloke.co.uk/

    Might be worthwhile contacting them to see if they can help you.

    There is a lad in Kilkenny here in Ireland, vintage watch.net is his site who is very highly regarded. I'm sure the postage wouldn't be too bad from the UK

    No idea what they charge but you might want to ask these guys for a quote too.
