WATCH REPAIRS

WATCH REPAIRS

We are authorised agents for Bremont, and as such always recommend using their workshop to maintain the integrity of your timepiece. There are standard pricing structures in place and we can advise you – contact us. Typical time frames for watch repairs are 3 to 8 weeks, though if diagnosis (which can take 3 to 4 weeks) reveals parts are required, this can sometimes be nearer to 12 weeks. 

For many other watch brands Jacobs provides a watch repair service via independent watch workshops who can help and provide estimates on demand.

Battery changes + spare watch straps: in house or off site

We also offer in house battery changes on certain watches, as well as a compact selection of straps. Do visit us or email pictures via our contact page for guidance as we will need to see your watch (front and back) to know if we can help in store or need to send away.

Please note in house watch batteries, if we are able to fit them, will not leave your watch water resistant. If an in house battery is fitted and soon after your watch becomes erratic once more, it may be the movement itself is faulty and will require off site service. For water resistancy in your watch, off site service is required. 

We’ve been serving Reading, Hook, Maidenhead, Wokingham, Bracknell, Henley on Thames for many years – contact us for more information.

General repairs 

We can accept certain types of repairs delivered to us (posted, via courier). We can accept new batteries or general services.  Please download this form in either word or PDF format for full instructions. You can read a bit more here
