4) Global Watch Service Singapore
For all the luxury Swiss collectors, especially Rolexes, fret not there’s a place for your valuable timepiece as well.
If bringing back to the Authorised Dealer for repair service isn’t your thing, you can visit Global Watch Service Centre Singapore, they are a Swiss and Rolex certified service centre with in-house Swiss trained technicians that has over 18 years of experience working for Swiss watch companies.
Perhaps one of their niche is the ability to service complications as they have serviced a number of Patek Philippes before, Speedmasters are also known for their complicated movements and the pains of servicing them, don’t worry, they’ve got it all covered too.
Similarly to Bonfield, they provide consignment of your watches and will post it on their social media pages. To find out more you can visit them here.
Last but not the least, a household brand for many watch collectors in Singapore, chances are you’ve already heard about SkyWatches and you might even have purchased some of your watches from them too.
But do you know that they also provide watch repair and restoration services?
As compared to the others in the list, their service may not be as ample for your needs but they do offer services mainly for Seikos. Their prices are friendly with a full watch service for the 4R36 movement only at $75 and a full service of the 7S26, 7S36 for only $55.
As awkward as it may sound, if you own a Cartier and would like to get it polished, you can visit them too as they provide a 45 minutes express service specifically only for Cartier. Biased to the brand? Or is Cartier easy to polish?
