Below you will find a few close-up macro photographs we took, just for fun, as well as, some snapshots from the service bench. It is important to remember though that such close-up macro shots with extreme lighting most times show details that can not be seen by the naked eye. Extra: Try our Localtime straps!

We are dedicated to ensuring the highest possible quality service for our customers. See the tabs below to read more about our policies. I was born and raised in Cyprus, a small island in the Eastern Mediterranean, now a member of the European Union. My studies took me to Switzerland, the USA, Germany, and England. I did not, as you might think, study to become a watchmaker but rather a hotelier. As such, I spent most of my professional life as a hotel manager. Over time, I have actually come to understand that watch restoration and hospitality have a lot in common.
In both instances, I have found myself taking care of people or products that were with me for a brief period of time. As a hotel manager, I was content at the end of a visitors stay in my hotel when they would give me a warm smile and an appreciative farewell. I love what I do and I take pride in doing it the best way possible in order to maintain the original integrity of each vintage timepiece.
