Repairs By Post is reaching out to watch retailers to offer a rapid repair service for pre-owned watches.
The service is promoted as a quick, easy and professional way to bring pre-owned watches back to a state in which they can be resold.
It currently repairs and services around 100 watches per week.
With the pre-owned and trade-in market booming, and with so few qualified watchmakers available to businesses in the UK, the Repairs By Post service fills a gap for jewellers that do not have their own watches workshop.
The company is not an authorised service centre for the major Swiss watch brands, but claims to use equipment of the same standard. Its watchmakers have all spent time working at the service centres of watchmakers including Omega, Cartier and Rolex repairs.
“For over a hundred years people have been reliant on popping in to their local high street jeweller for their watch or jewellery repair requirements, today you the jeweller still exist but more than likely you do not have your own watch repairer on site,” says Jonathan Goldstone, owner of Repairs By Post. “In this modern busy hectic life, we all now lead, there is a well-kept secret which needs to be shared with you. Based on the intelligently simple Amazon website principle. There is a company that can carry out your repair direct to your shop door,” he adds.
