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.

1st Class Service

I found Sean from an advert and sent him an Omega Speedmaster for service
Sean was very helpful and his work was 1st class even, so I now send him my watches for service

I cant recommend him enough if you have a watch needs servicing Seans your man

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

ANOTHER FANTASTIC JOB ON A VERY TIRED VINTAGE OMEGA CONSTELLATION PIE PAN FROM THE 1950’S. IT NEEDED SERVICE AND PARTS WHICH I DIDNT KNOW WERE STILL AVALAIBLE BUT SEAN ONCE AGAIN DID FULL SERVCIE AND GOT ALL ORIGINAL OMEGA PARTS. NOW RUNNING AND LOOKING LIKE NEW CAN’T RECOMEND SEAN ENOUGH, PERFECTION ONCE AGAIN SO WOULD RECOMMEND IF YOU WANT TOP SERVICE AT EXCELLENT VALUE, PLEASE CONTACT SEAN. THIS IS MY 4TH WATCH SENT SO WILL BE SENDING MY SPEEDMASTER NEXT WITHOUT HESITATION.

Speedmaster professional back like new.

High quality service my “Moon watch” returned as if it were new again. Sean is a great find for any quality watch owner, I was most impressed by the step by step process of dis-assembly and repair, complete with high quality photos of the job, highly recommended by me, I will be using his service again.
