Watch set up & hand calibration

Watch Set Up and Hand Calibration Service - Birmingham

We are often asked in-store to set up or calibrate hands on watches of varying complexity. Some are very simple to do and only take minutes. Others are far more difficult and time consuming, for which we charge an administration fee. We offer a watch setting up service that sometimes we can do the same day, others need a few days particularly if a radio controlled time signal is needed.

The usual problems are around the zeroing or calibration of watch hands before the watch functions can be set. Or low battery power that disables functions on the watch until the watch battery is replaced or in the case of a solar power watch, it’s re-charged in natural light to re-establish the watch’s functions. Changing the hour from Summer to Winter and holidays abroad often result in help needed to reset the time.

Set up of digital watches, Perpetual calendar and Tissot’s T-Touch ana-digi models are also undertaken. Typically, our administration fee is from £10 to £20 depending on how many hours it can take to complete.
