  • Our estimated time for completion of a watch repair is 3-4 months. Please note that this is an estimate only and subject to change without notice.

  • All complete services are covered by our 12-month guarantee. Partial repairs are not covered by our guarantee.

  • Intervention / unauthorised work performed by anyone other than Time In Hand or removal of a watch case back will immediately void your guarantee, and will not be reimbursed.

  • Our guarantee does not cover the following:

  • Crown, stem, bezel, crystal, band or bracelet, or general wear and tear to these parts

  • Accidental damage or damage caused by misuse, including dropping or jarring, or leaving a ‘screw down crown’ unscrewed

  • Exposure of the watch to conditions it has not been built for, such as moisture and water

  • Defects caused by general wear and tear

  • Should you encounter a problem or fault with your watch repair, please contact us immediately (within the 12 month guarantee period) and we will advise of the next step.

  • You will be advised of our accepted timekeeping tolerances for your watch upon completion.

  • If the guarantee applies, we will rectify any faults arising from the service provided by us (Time In Hand), and you (the customer) are responsible for returning the watch to us for this purpose.  Should you choose to arrange for Time In Hand to collect the watch from you, this collection service will incur a charge.


We reserve the right to request a higher deposit amount depending on the nature of the restoration.

Full payment is required at time of collection of your watch. Personal cheques are not accepted.

If your watch is not collected within eight weeks, a weekly storage charge of £81.60, equivalent to 1 hour of labour, will apply.
