My name is Sean Yates, and I’m an independent watchmaker. After a decade working in engineering, I soon found a profound interest in horology.

I am now a full-time, professional watchmaker and have been servicing watches both for individual customers, as well as watch dealers and local jewellers, for many years.

I have gained a wealth of experience over the years, and specialise in vintage Rolex and Omega, alongside complex movements, such as manual and automatic chronographs.

Feel free to book your watch in via my online job tracking system on my ‘workshop’ page.

Omega Constellation

I had the opportunity to have my Omega constellation watch repaired and refurbished and picked up Sean’s watch service on E bay, and I’m glad i did. From start to finish the service was first class with him explaining every part of the procedure and sending me pictures of the repair, his whole purpose is to satisfy and help the client, my watch hasn’t worked this well in years and his charges for the work are very reasonable. Highly recommended and I’m glad at any time to support this very knowledgeable and helpful gentleman, use him and you will not be disappointed, first class Sean.

Running perfectly

JLC Reverso Gran Sport

Following the service work by Sean my JLC reverso gran sport now keeps excellent time and the automatic movement has the reserve time it had when new. The watch had not been serviced for 12 years and was running very slow. Sean clearly explains what he can do before receiving the watch, gives a straight forward assessment of work needed when he gets the watch and does the servicing work to a very high standard. Sean’s communication and web site are very impressive and interesting showing clearly what he is doing. Sean serviced my watch at a fraction of the cost JLC charges and much quicker, Sean makes owning posh watches far less painful when they need work. Sean is 100% recommended, I will be using him again.

Restoration of a friend

I have had my Rolex Oyster for more than thirty years and when it went wrong it was like loosing a friend.
However I need not have worried.
Sean has repaired my watch and skillfully done just enough restoration to keep the watch just as it had become in use with a few battle scars and original aged parts. At all times I have been kept informed and provided with some amazing photos.
A truely first class service by an artisan both skilfull and proud in his work.
Thank you Ian m-r
