My father Mr Gordon Brandt, began his trade as a Horologist in Feilding, New Zealand prior to WWII, he was meticulous and a perfectionist when it came to caring for his clients' timepieces.
As a teenager in the 1970's I worked beside my father and learnt the art of horology, I served a 5 year apprenticeship with both the New Zealand Horologist Institute (NZHI) and the American Watch Clock Institute (AWCI).
Over the last 45 years my passion has always been horology and I have stayed in the profession all my working life. There hasn't been a time where I haven't been able to fix or restore a watch or clock, I have always taken great pride in my work which is reflected in the repeat customer base I have especially for the luxury and designer watches.
I personally do all watch and clock repairs sent to me and also look after many jewellery shop watch and clock repairs. Coming direct to me will save you time and money. I can be contacted by phone: 04 5052 0900 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I offer a comprehensive service list from battery replacement to full restoration of both watches and clocks which can involve building antique damaged components that can't be bought. I service every possible movement calibre including 400 and 1000 day clocks, luxury timepieces, automatic, mechanical, hand wound, quartz, chronograph, annual calendar, dual time zone and many more.
Bring your watch to me for pressure testing, water testing, crystal replacement, polishing, regulation & timing and de-magnetization
If it is a comprehensive overhaul service you require the watch or clock will be completely dismantled and every component is cleaned and checked for wear and damage, if any parts are damaged I will try to source the original parts or make the part if it is no longer available. I use advanced lubricant for each part to minimise friction and to prevent wear.
Where applicable coil resistance and timing is checked, water resistance tests are performed and each watch goes through a rigorous final check
I have been specialising in postal watch repairs and servicing for many years, throughout New Zealand and Australia.
When the watch repair and service work has been received into my workshop via registered mail or courier I will send out an email notification on receipt of the watch and an email confirmation of estimates before any work is undertaken.
You can make an informed decision on whether to go ahead or not.
