A watch restoration generally goes well beyond the usual revision. Here a wide field of possibilities opens up to bring back older or damaged watches to a fresh condition again, especially when it comes to valuable collectibles.

So there are for example:

  • Overhaul including new production of movement parts
  • Dial restoration
  • Hand restoration incl. covering with new luminous coating

Many famous watchmakers or founders of watch manufacturers have first made a name for themselves as highly talented restorers, especially of highly complicated watches, for example Franck Muller, Michel Parmigiani or Francois-Paul Journe.
