    Brendan Hoey service review

    I bought an Omega Constellation (168.005, cal 561) at auction, but it was running terribly fast. Having looked through these forums, I decided to send it off to Brendan (webwatchmaker.com) for a service.

    I couldn't be more pleased with the result - Brendan's communication was great, keeping me informed as the service proceeded and asking before doing any extra work - including WhatsApping photos for a quick response. Very reasonable price, too.
    From my experience, I'd certainly recommend Brendan. He also returned both the replaced crown and crystal.

    Will try to post photos when I work out how!

    Hope that is helpful to anyone considering having their watch serviced.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your review, and for making me aware on Brendan Hoey.
    He has recently restored to life an old Tudor for me (1940 - 1950,s), and I can only echo your good words.
    He kept me up to date with his progress, and happily answered all of my questions, some of which must have seemed maddeningly simple to him.
    He was the unfailingly patient and polite, supplied photos of progress, and best of all my watch back with me now and is running really well.

    Thank you for your kind words.
    Whilst my bread and butter is Rolex, Omega and Breitling chronographs, it always gives me special pleasure to restore a classic and much loved watch.

    Brendan did a superlative job on an O&W chrono last year for me
    Top man

    Another satisfied customer

    Mr Hoey was kind enough to service my Hamilton W10 and I am delighted with the results. I was walked through every step of the process thanks to exceptional communication, including photographs. The watch has been returned to me extremely promptly looking fabulous - I only wish my lamentable skills as a photographer could do it justice. I cannot recommend Mr Hoey enough, and feel sure that I will be entrusting more of my timepieces to his expertise in the near future. Thank you
