They did a beautiful job on the exterior cleaning and polish
About three weeks later I received a email stating that my watch had shipped, they provide a tracking number that I might keep a track of it, upon receiving the watch I inspected it and have to say that they did a beautiful job on the exterior cleaning and polish plus they replaced the clasp, I can only assume that the work done to the movement is of equal quality and detail this will be born out over time as I see how the accuracy is.
They also provided the pressure test ticket in the return package.
I would recommend this company if you have need of jewelry repair.
I feel like I have found a treasure

Watch Crystal Repair Notes
Cracked Your Watch's Crystal? You May Need Watch Movement Servicing
In some cases, when a watch crystal is shattered, it is important to check on the watch movement since microscopic glass or sapphire particles can get into the movement causing damage. This can cause the need for watch movement servicing, and potentially replacement of movement parts.
Professional Parts Sourcing Team
Genuine parts, especially for rare vintage watches, can be a challenge, but our long history within the industry has given us access to great sources around the globe. Even if the parts are no longer available, our Certified Watchmakers can manufacture some parts if needed.

Different Types of Watch Crystals
There are 3 main materials used for watch crystals: acrylic, mineral glass, and sapphire/synthetic sapphire.
Acrylic Crystals are:
- The most affordable and the softest material used for watch crystals
- Shatter resistant, but they do scratch easily or even crack with a hard impact
- Usually able to be buffed out for shallow scratches since it is a softer material
- Can be molded into different and unique shapes unlike other crystal materials
Mineral Glass Crystals are:
- Harder than acrylic crystals
- Not able to scratch quite as easily, but can shatter with a hard impact
- The most commonly used material for watch crystals today
- The most popular crystal choice by manufacturers
Synthetic Sapphire Crystals are:
- The hardest material used for watch crystals and often labeled as scratch resistant
- The most expensive
- Is lab grown, but has the same chemical composition as natural sapphire
- Sapphire is the second hardest element, with diamond being the hardest.
- Synthetic Sapphire crystals can chip or even shatter with a hard impact. Many luxury watch manufacturers use sapphire crystals.
You don’t pay anything until you approve a repair or have us send it back to you at no charge.

- Moisture damage (applicable to non-water resistant watches)
- Damage brought about by misuse, accident, or tampering

We do vintage watch restoration, mechanical and automatic movement repair, quartz movement replacement, and much more!
This will depend on the kind of watch repair service you will need. A simple battery replacement can be processed by our Certified Watchmakers under a week. A movement overhaul on the other hand can be very variable, and is subject to availability of parts.
