We buy broken watches !
Most of us have a old broken watches sitting in the back of a drawer or that was left to us by a relative. Like most things mechanical however watches need to be serviced and repaired and unfortunately this is not a inexpensive process . For most cheap watches the cost of repair is simply more than the value of the watch ( unless it has sentimental value ) but there are plenty watches around that are worth repairing but quite often the cost of repair ( £600 for a decent service on a high end watch ) is not something a owner will want to fork out.
At Watches Of Westminster however we have a in house watchmaker who loves the challenge of getting a watch running properly so sell us your broken watch and we will give it a good home .
Having done the first year of a watchmakers course believe me mending watches is a very tricky job which does explain why its a rather expensive process. I went to the Epping Forest Horology centre and vey much enjoyed my course so if you fancy a go check this link out
If you want to move your watch on to a good home then contact us with a couple of decent pictures ( front or back ) and we can give you a fast valuation and either pick the watch up or arrange a free postal package so you can post the watch to us.
You can go to our valuation page or just send the pictures direct to me on 07768316371 via text or Whattsapp and you will get a fast response. No need for a visit and a wait, it can all be done remotely.
Even if your watch is missing parts such as the glass or winder it can be repaired and we are keen to repair it .
We have bought hundreds of watches this way and have proven track record in keeping customers happy.
Your broken watch could be worth more than you think so get in touch with us and we can complete the whole process quicker than you think.

The Omega watch company have been in existence since 1848 and have built up a very fine reputation throughout the world for high quality watches.
Some of the history of the Omega watch includes:
Today watches are not only an item to be worn for the practical purpose of telling the time but they have become so much more than that. Quality watches are now a fashion accessory and are now regarded as a status symbol giving some perceived indication of the wearer’s style and wealth.
The watch brands, models, material used in the construction, exclusivity of the watch, reputation, age and the movement all contribute to establishing if a watch will appreciate in value in the coming years.
Throughout Omega’s watch making history, their main competitor has been Rolex and although Rolex watches are highly desirable and collectable, they generally have a different set of clients; maybe younger with a not so ostentatious look. Omega has in the last 50 years focused a huge amount of its attention on the branding and marketing of their watches using high profile celebrities to promote their watches worldwide.
Omega is, without a doubt, a very fine luxury watch brand that originated in Switzerland and is now owned by Swatch. Their watches are highly regarded in the watch and collectors market place and if you are sensible with your choice after doing some research, then you will have a purchased a luxury watch that will appreciate in value year on year.
Omega watches are a well-respected and high quality stylish timepiece brand that over the years has moved with the times developing its range but not compromising in anyway on its quality and desirability.
In order for the purchase of an Omega watch to be a sound investment, it is important to understand that if you are purchasing a new watch from a retail showroom, the value of the watch will disintegrate immediately. This is not a poor reflection on Omega watches but it is just the norm on generally all watch sales. Vintage watches are where you will earn your money. Firstly before you purchase a vintage Omega watch, do your research. An original vintage Omega watch is what all self-respecting watch collectors are looking for. Along with the watches original box and papers and the watch being in good condition. These are all the hallmarks of a solid investment.
Here at Watches of Westminster, we specialise in Vintage watches of all brands and have a number of vintage Omegas for sale. Feel free to browse our second hand and vintage watch sales page and if you have a watch to sell or Part Exchange just get in contact.

I am the owner of Watches Of Westminster please read the about me Section on my website. I really do like buying and selling watches especially vintage models/ old watches anything up to late 90s ) even more so when they need some rescue / repair . Its not about the money ( thats a very long story ) and you do meet the most interesting people / customers in this business .
Sadly the most prominent company in this market Austin Kaye the cornerstone of vintage / high end watch retailing for over 60 years sadly closed their shop on the Strand central London. So many people ( even me ) have now have to forgo that lunchtime browse of gorgeous want to have watches ( I even went into the shop last year and nearly bought a Speedie at retail !!)
If your heading to London and want to look at a few of my watches just let me know and I would be happy to meet you at your hotel or any other (public ) location to suit in or around London and talk watches especially if that include a PX. Old watches are a passion for me.
Its just what I do and it is for the fun of it

We specialise in buying vintage watches that are in need of some TLC. so if you have a broken vintage watch please let us know.
A broken vintage watch has often been left in the back of a drawer or handed down through the family but have not been serviced for many years or are in need of repair.
Sometimes these watches do make it to the local repair shop who can’t repair them ( watchmaking is a dying art ) or they ( the so called watch repairers ) simply want to send them away for a very expensive overhaul. This can often cost as much as the watch is worth and quite often the watches value is ruined by the original hands or dial being changed ( DONT DO IT !! ).
We are happy to look at any interesting or high end vintage watch you have in any condition even if not running as we love rescuing once great time pieces and giving them a new home.
We can also look at your old watch and PX it against one of our more modern watches or even a newly serviced vintage watch. Theres nothing we won’t consider. Just contact us via the web site or even call us on 07768316371 and ask for Simon.
This is an interesting watch I recently bought from my watchmaker ( he is great at vintage watch repairs ) ! he had to change the glass and free up the bezel but other than that its now become my daily wearer and is in effect a rescued broken vintage watch. Yes even quartz watches can be vintage and asI forget to wind my watches up wearing this watch is not a problem.
Not all broken vintage watches can be repaired as many of the parts are not available ( Rolex will not stock or sell parts ) so its often a waiting game until the parts come up normally on Ebay.

Just in at Watches Of Westminster is this fantastic Omega Speedmaster Rattrapante 354050 Limited Edition with the superb black dial.
This is a rare Omega Speedmaster and was more expensive than the standard Omega Speedmaster model back in 1998 and differed to the X-33 in that it had 3 pushers. It was available with a leather strap or stainless as shown above.
At the time, this Omega Speedmaster was futuristic looking watch with a carbon fibre dial and 3 rounded off rectangular pushers. One pusher was to start/stop the timing, the second to reset the chronograph hands and the third at 10 o’clock position would operate the split-seconds function
The heart of the watch ( the movement ) is a Omega Cal 3600 which is based on the ETA / Valjoux 7750 movement but modified to become the split second chronograph that it is today. IWC did a very similar thing for their Double Chrono Fleiger.
Here is our page for the model we are selling

If you want to sell your Rolex GMT then here at Watches Of Westminster we love to buy vintage Rolex “tool” watches such as The Rolex GMT Master.
We make the process very quick and simple . A staff member from Watches Of Westminster will also travel to your home to collect the Rolex GMT in person.
The Rolex GMT master came about in 1953 when Pan American Airlines and a airline from Europe ( quite possibly an Italian one ) actually approached Rolex ( who had one of the best reputations for tough accurate watches ) to develop a watch that could tell the time in 2 time zones. The Rolex GMT simply gets its name from Greenwich Mean Time and has been copied many times by other manufacturers.
Aeroplanes were not very sophisticated in those days as they are now and knowing the time in the time Zone you flew from and were flying to was quite important !
The watch with the Pepsi bezel is now an iconic design loved by many including myself ! The 2 below are in my collection !
WHAT ARE THEY WORTH ?
Depends very much on age , dial condition and existence of paperwork and boxes but if you send us some decent pictures of the front and back of the watch plus any boxes or paperwork we can give you a fixed price for the watch the same day
