I came to the Antique Watch Company when I was searching for a watch made by a little-know maker, one Joseph Sherwin of Burton-on-Trent. I enjoyed listening to Jonathan's deep knowledge of old pocket watches, and this one of 1850 now gives me great pleasure.
I returned to the shop this year to ask for help with a minor repair of 1931 Rotary; Jonathan did the necessary work nicely and his charge was very reasonable.
It's a pleasure to visit the shop, the standard of banter he and the staff provide is of the highest order!

Antique Watch Co (AWC) is a great shop with excellent products and outstanding service. They have the best selection of vintage Omega watches I have ever seen, and at decent prices. I bought a 1953 Omega from them in December 2016 and have been thrilled with it. The watch recently suffered a minor fault (to be expected from time to time, on a 65-year old watch) and although it was well beyond the 12-month warranty which AWC gave me when I bought it, they agreed to fix it under warranty (at no cost to me) which was beyond what I was expecting. The repair was quick (a few days including testing) and the watch is back with me now, running better than ever. This is a great example of personal service, and exemplifies the helpful and professional way AWC goes about its business. Thank you!

Jonathan took my pocket watch, and within two days he'd emailed helpful and interesting information, with his offer. I accepted it, and received the money promptly in my bank account. Besides being efficient and business-like, it was a real pleasure to deal with Jonathan.

I bought a 1935 Omega from the Antique Watch Company ten years ago. Using it every day was a pleasure but gave it perhaps a harder life than it deserved. A recent full service and renovation by AWC has returned an immaculate timepiece which will receive a little more care this time! Wonderful people doing an exceedingly professional job with whom it is safe to entrust your vintage watch.

cant fault the actual work carried out but the attitude of the staff could improve - there is a defensive humourless streak in each of the 3 people i dealt with which i can't quite put my finger on... but it runs through the place like a stick of rock. By all means use them - but don't take it personally

This comment has an official response:

Hi and happy new year. Many thanks for The review and sorry you felt that way. We are a small family business and some customers treat us like a personal assistant. This can spoil it for the genuine customers like yourself. I myself usually joking around as are the other guys. Maybe you caught us on a bad day? Apologies again please except a free battery change on me next time. Best Regards Jonathan

Fantastic little place. They have revived and serviced my Dad's old watch for me brilliantly over the years, so I decided to buy an Omega watch from them and it is brilliant and was very reasonable.

Excellent service, really friendly , honest and incredibly helpful. I fully recommend these guys! I brought my 10 year old G-Shock in - the casing and strap had been destroyed and these guys spent time advising me what to do and when i brought all the relevant parts they put it together and didn't even charge me!

Clerkenwell is home to the watchmaking community and this is THE place to go.

The folks here have been loking after my Longines watch since I inherited it from my Dad. They have kept it going with love and ingenuity for many years and I have built up a great relationship with the staff. Lovely people, incredibly talented watch-repairers, and if there is a way to keep an old watch going they will find it. Couldn't recommend them more.

Incredibly helpful when I visited their shop with my 1965 Seiko handwind watch. They were very generous with their time to look at, and talk to me about my watch and how to look after it.

Highly recommended for professionalism, customer service and all round niceness.

What a joy to be able to find genuine craftspeople who understand older watches and have the desire to look after them with care and attention that is rarely seen in the modern consumer driven world of big stores and online sourcing platforms.

Clerkenwell Road based Antique Watch Company provided a welcome approach to a simple repair to the strap of a watch I have owned since its manufacture in the early sixties. A sympathetic approach coupled with a sound knowledge base made the experience informative ( for me! ), and enjoyable, and the simple repair was carried out in a few minutes.

If you have a watch that you cherish and want it repaired or serviced by someone who provides care and has a high level of pride in their work, I can thoroughly recommend the Antique Watch Company.

An absolute must go-to place if you have any problems with your watch - old or new. Such a friendly and 'no problem too small' attitude, even though I went in there with a (brand new) watch with only had a stiff clasp, the gentleman was more than happy to help fix it for me. The shop display, a plethora of antiques from watches to clocks and postcards, (and a signed thank you card from Kate Moss, rather impressed!) told me straight away that they love their business, the products they sell and helping people enjoy them as much as they do. After making sure my new watch fitted me perfectly (with no charge!), I left a very happy customer.

I received my Omega this morning and I just wanted to pass on my thanks and appreciation for this excellent time piece; it even fitted exactly to my wrist.

You are obviously a very skilled craftsman; and your expertise in restoring this watch shines through.

Thanks again; and without doubt I will be recommending and using your services again.

Great shop and fab, knowledgable staff. I inherited my dad's Omega recently and took the watch to the antique watch co for a service and a new strap. The work took time and wasn't cheap but the watch came back beautifully renewed. Then, when it stopped, they were able to get it going again and did not charge me though there was evidence that the watch had had a knock. I think this would have been a bone of contention at a lesser shop. I was not able to absolutely say for certain that it had taken an out-of-the-ordinary impact, we talked about it and I was given the benefit of the doubt.

With out doubt this is the best place in London to buy a vintage Omega watch (and probably any other brand as well). I searched London markets, shops and stalls.
The AWC have great stock....the best selection I have found!
All watches work perfectly and due to being serviced before sale by an expert. Great staff, great stock and great prices.

I will keep going back, and keep recommending them.

I visited this shop today to ask some advice on an antique rolex.Quite quickly the guy I dealt with told me he didn't have the required parts so I expected to be directed elsewhere.Instead he spent a good 10 mins giving me real expert advice.Absolutely excellent service, particularly as they knew I would go on to spend money on service elsewhere. I would not hesitate to recommend this shop, 5 star outstanding service!!

My husband's (previously my father's) much loved Omega was serviced here. Unfortunately my own Cartier got taken to another place by mistake - a high end City jewellers who returned my watch not only missing one of the screws off the backplate but obstinately not keeping time! The very helpful staff at Antique not only gave me advice about resolving the issue (which included getting a full refund from the other place) but serviced my watch to my satisfaction and AT HALF THE COST! Genuine, knowledgable and friendly, even when busy. Thank you. I recommend your shop to everyone I meet.

My vintage Rolex had stopped working so I took it to Antique Watch Co. as it was nice and local. The staff very generously identified, and fixed the problem there and then.
Great selection of vintage watches, friendly and knowledgable staff, would highly recommend.

My experience was also excellent. I took my vintage Breitling along to Antique Watch Co to have a full service and polish as I had quite a few scratches on the bracelet. It seemed like a very busy establishment but was assured I would have my watch back in 10 days, and I did! I was very pleased to see that all the scratches had been gently removed, my watch looked brand new. I found the shop staff very friendly and they knew their stuff! I would definitely return to the shop again and recommend to others.

Thanks again

My experience has been excellent. I picked up my two JW Benson watches yesterday. They have been lovingly and respectfully restored. It took a little longer than estimated but frankly I just wanted a great job and that was what I got. The service in the shop was friendly and professional.

I will certainly return to these people to service my watches in the future. Many thanks.

I must agree with the other review which said the service was poor. The man behind the counter was unbelievably surly and I don't think I have ever experienced such poor customer service. Avoid!

We are a local business and expected good service from this business. Our expectations were not met on this occasion. When we asked, politely, why they were not prepared to undertake certain work on a former pocket watch, my colleague and I were told, and I quote "I don't have to explain myself". A simple constructive explanation would have been more helpful. We were left somewhat shaken and surprised. Unfortunately not recommended based on this experience.

What a shop of delights, My uncle informed me of this little jewel and im so glad he did. once you get over the Honest up front Shop front guys, its clear they are backed up by years of knowledge and old school wisdom. If a bit slow to complete my old dads watch was lovingly restored and is ticking away like a trooper as i type.
When collecting my watch another customer was ranting and raving about how she had paid £5 for a battery in the shop some 2 months ago and the watch has stopped. As one of the staff explained life and the fact that they had only fitted a battery along with the facts regarding the low quality of her watch matched with the massive crack in her glass and water under the glass. I tried not to laugh but they let her down gently and set her straight accordingly. lol

These guys are pros and im sure with more staff and less impatient customers they will be around for another 30 years. lets hope my watch does not now stop after my praise.

Timeless!
