If you love classic timepieces from leading brands such as Rolex, Omega, Tag Heuer, Patek Philippe and others, you’ll know they deserve the best care, love and attention to maintain and enhance their condition and value. You’ll be assured to know that you can place absolute trust in Steven Hale Watch Restoration. We are a well-established and highly respected company of expert repairers and restorers of premium-quality wristwatches and pocket-watches.
Founded in 2005, we first acted as the classic watch restoration department of Somlo Antiques in central London’s Burlington Arcade. Before long we established an independent watch servicing and repair business nearby in Mayfair, close to our existing showroom and offices in South Molton Street.
After 10 years we purchased premises in Watford and created a purpose-built workshop housing the latest precision engineering tools and machinery. With 2,500 sqf, this enables us to provide exceptional service, combining our showroom in Mayfair with our state-of-the-art workshop in Watford. SHWR offer a complete watch servicing, repair, polishing and restoration service for modern, classic and antique high-end watches. We work with Rolex, Omega, Tag Heuer, Patek Philippe and other leading brands. We are the only workshop in the UK to receive the highest level of Rolex accreditation.
We also value, buy and sell modern, vintage and repurposed watches, personally guaranteeing the working order and authenticity of all the timepieces we sell. Our loyal client base includes some of the finest London jewellers and watch-dealers, as well as discerning individual collectors and classic watch experts.

"Dear Jubal, Yes, Brian texted me yesterday with photos of the clock which he is hugely delighted with – much improved from the original present I gave him! Just like new he said! Thank you for all your courtesy and wonderful work. It has been a pleasure to have such service. I sing your praises everywhere."
"Apologies for the slight delay, but I wanted to thank you for forwarding the Invoice. I also wanted to tell you that I’m pleased with the watch. I love the sympathetic polish, which was enough to rejuvenate it, but it still looks appropriate for a vintage watch. I didn’t notice the metallic blue sweep hand previously, but I like that too..! Thank you to all who had a part in the transformation Jubal".
"Super to see you and thank you for handing over my father’s Rolex. A great deal of wonderful work has gone into it. It looks utterly super and authentic. I am delighted and I know he will be thrilled when he gets it back on Christmas morning. Thank you for all your efforts and please pass on my appreciation to the workshop who have done a tip top job."
"I am so pleased with my watch. I have spoken to many people about the first-rate work of SHWR and will continue to promote you to my friends."
"All in all, the refurbishment has been beyond my own expectations, and allows long term continued use of this almost fifty year old watch gifted by my mother and father.May I personally thank you for your work to refurbish this watch which is very much appreciated."
