About

My name is Olivier.

I started my career as a Chartered Mechanical Engineer, and, after many years working in Engineering and Project Management in the Oil and Gas industry, I decided to retrain and work full time on my long-standing passion for horology.

As you might have guessed from my name, I am French, but I now live and work in the UK. I am based in Hampshire in the South of England.

I have completed the following training with the BHI (British Horological Institute):

  • Basic Mechanical Watches
  • Basic Quartz Watches
  • Service and Repair of Day/ Date Automatic Watches
  • Chronographs
  • Distance Learning (ongoing)

I carry out service, restoration and repair work – typically full movement servicing, but also smaller jobs such as crystal/glass replacement, and battery replacement.  Please see my price list for further details.

I hope you enjoy reading the articles on my blog.  I enjoy writing these articles and sharing my love of watches. For more photos you are welcome to visit my Instagram page
