All our pocket watches are serviced and come with one year guarantee to; to service, a pocket watch can cost you approx £90 to £150 and much more if parts are to be replaced.  Not many horologists do offer one year guarantee which is very important in my opinion, especially when you are buying an antique pocket watch relying on a mechanism built over 100 years ago which needs to be serviced, maintained and in full working order to be considered as a good investment.

One year Guaranty starting from the date of purchase
