In todays' increasingly throwaway society it is ever more difficult to find someone with the knowledge and skill to service and repair traditional timepieces.
At Fine Jewellery & Watches of Wimborne we are most fortunate in having the resources of two horologists, one being Rolex trained, as well as a host of difficult-to-find parts.
From simple battery replacement and strap and bracelet alterations through to full servicing, valeting and dial restoration on all leading makes including Rolex, Omega, Cartier, Breitling, Longines, Raymond Weil, Gucci, Tag Heuer and Tissot, we are able to help.
Whatever your watch query may be speak to someone who enjoys watches as much as you do.
Being fortunate in having a traditional goldsmith we are able to undertake virtually all of your jewellery repairs in house.
Using time honoured methods and experience gained over a great many years we are able to repair your broken or damaged item usually within JUST ONE DAY whether it be a simple re-sizing to sourcing, supplying and replacing missing gemstones.
We are able to restring pearls although this service is undertaken by trusted outworkers and all items are fully insured throughout the process.
All of our repairs are fully guaranteed for twelve months against faulty workmanship.
We are agents and stockists of Seiko, Lorus and Royal London watches all of which are supplied with a full two year warranty.
We also hold an extensive range of pre-owned and vintage watches from the 1940s onwards.
Due to their popularity we invariably have an ever changing selection of 1950s and 1960s mechanical and automatic watches from leading manufacturers including Rolex, Omega, Jaeger LeCoultre, Longines, Movado and Zenith as well as a variety of beautiful cocktail watches.
Often jewellery is passed from generation to generation but within that time, fashion and tastes may change.
We are able to retain the emotional attachment of an inherited item whilst keeping the original gemstones and metal by creating a contemporary piece of jewellery.
If required we are able to plan your dream item using 3D CAD design and of course by speaking directly with our goldsmith.
When buying a diamond several factors need to be considered and although invariably you will hear about the 4 c's when choosing the right diamond being colour, clarity, cut and carat weight, we think there is a fifth; cost.
As we have a large number of rings and loose stones available – or can speedily source them - we are almost always able to create the perfect ring at an affordable price.
Through recommendations we have acquired several European customers who travel to us with their specifications for us to turn their vision into reality.
Our wedding bands are available in silver, gold and platinum in widths from 2mm to 6mm and styles ranging from traditional court shaped (gently rounded on the inside and outside of the ring) and D shape (curved on the outside and flat inside) to custom designed rings.
We are always pleased to buy jewellery and watches and are happy to provide free expert advice on their value although a charge may be made for probate and insurance valuations.
Over time you may have accumulated various old, unloved, unwanted or broken pieces of jewellery or watches that you no longer wish to keep.
These items will still have a value and we are always happy to buy them for immediate cash or bank transfer.
