    Any recommended Watchmakers in the Southwest?

    Looking for a competent watchmaker in the south west, Cornwall preferably. Any recommendations? I have an Explorer 114270 that needs some attention a Datejust that needs servicing and a few odd jobs on some Seikoís. Have used Robert Reeves previously for Rolex and was very pleased but he is stacked out hence my post. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks

    Sorry - what I meant to say (can't edit it on Tapatalk) is

    Brendan Hoey trading as Webwatchmaker is based in Devon (Torquay I think) and in my opinion is very good.

    The good thing about moving to the SW is that I can drive over to drop off and collect from him now too!

    Thank you for your votes of confidence.
    I am pleased not to be accredited to any watch house.
    Bear in mind that Rolex accreditation means you will be paying Rolex accredited prices, therefore you might as well send it to Rolex direct.
    I generally charge about half Rolex prices, and use genuine parts, which is probably why I am overwhelmed with the volume of repairs I receive.
