Can anything be done to remove marks and scratches from my watch?

What is a watch Service?

During a service procedure, the watch will be completely dismantled and any worn or defective parts will be replaced. The movement will then be ultrasonically cleaned, reassembled, lubricated to manufacturers' specifications and electronically timed. The case and bracelet will be refinished to the original specification where possible. We carry an extensive range of spare parts for many calibres to ensure that your watch is returned to optimum condition. For more information please visit our SERVICES page.
