Apart from the human heart, few things in life are required to work 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our specialist watch service team works as hard as your timepiece does. Our Rolex-trained watchmakers are dedicated to ensuring your watch continues to work for you as it should, year after year.
Hundreds of tiny components work to keep your mechanical timepiece ticking. Just like your car, taking care of your precious, valuable watch makes financial sense.
Opening your watchcase, whether for servicing or waterproofing, should only be carried out by a highly qualified watchmaker with the necessary testing equipment. At David M Robinson, our dedicated team of Rolex-trained watchmakers have years of experience in the sophisticated process of watch servicing.
As well as full repair services, we offer battery replacement, maintenance servicing, timekeeping testing, waterproofing and resealing.
David M Robinson is proud to be part of the worldwide network of Rolex-trained watchmakers, carefully selected for their uncompromising professionalism and expertise. We follow the Rolex Service Procedure, designed to ensure that every timepiece leaving a Rolex workshop complies with its original functional and aesthetic specifications.

The various openings and joints of your timepiece must be sealed in order to keep your watch working after contact with water. Naturally, the seals themselves can degrade over time. We recommend these are checked annually (especially if the watch is used for serious water-based activities like scuba diving). Our team at David M Robinson is highly skilled in the art of keeping a watch protected from water.
To find out if your watch seals need protecting, make an enquiry using the form above. You can also phone or pop into one of our four UK showrooms, where our expert ambassadors can tell you more.
While most modern watches can withstand some level of exposure to water, those made before 1970 do not have the waterproofing technology that modern timepieces do. Of course, we recommend these watches are kept away from moist environments.
Virtually all modern watches can withstand a normal level of water exposure such as hand washing, while diver’s watches rated at 300m (1,000ft) can easily cope with a swim in the sea. When your timepiece does come into contact with salt water, because even high-grade stainless steel will oxidise with direct contact with salt, it should be rinsed off as soon as possible with fresh water.
Of course, some timepieces such as the Rolex Sea-Dweller Deep Sea watch, can cope with enormous depths but even so, must be checked regularly with a watch servicing, to ensure that their seals are working correctly.
Whichever precious timepiece you own, it will have its own unique needs. The team at David M Robinson are perfectly placed to advise you and service it correctly.
