Repairs & Service Michael Lynes Jewellery

WATCH SERVICES

At Michael Lynes and Henley Goldsmiths we are fortunate to still be able to access a former Rolex accredited and now retired independent watch repairer. We are able to do watch repairs both in store and through our watch repairer from everything including batteries right up to full services and restores of classic and modern watches including main brands such as Rolex, Omega, Longines, as well as many other. Watch repairs done on site such as batteries, link removals and clasp adjustments can be turned around within an hour. For more complex work this may be a couple of days or if we decide to send it to our workshop it can take a minimum of ten days. You will always be advised of timescales when you bring your watches into the shops.

PEARL & BEADS

We have access to an independent re-stringer who has been working with us at Michael Lynes since 2010. These jobs are sent to the workshop via insured post and are normally turned around within a week. The price for this service varies depending on your item and will be quoted upfront of any work being done.

ENGRAVING

Our engraver has access to machine engraving facilities as well as hand graving those items which cannot be done by machine. In store you will be able to select the font and size of your engraving so you can be assured that on return your engraving will look just as you envisioned. This service takes a minimum of ten days.

JEWELLERY REPAIRS

With over forty years of experience in the jewellery trade Michael has worked in everything from the workshops to now running two successful businesses. He is able to deal with any questions about repairs be they big or small and give prices almost instantaneously. We have access to a workshop both in Birmingham and a more local one to the Henley store in Berkshire. Michael has been using both of these repairers for a number of years and knows exactly what each workshop specialises in and what limitations of work that can and can’t be done are. As we use highly skilled individuals work can take upwards of two weeks to be completed, however this is to ensure that the quality and end product is guarantee-able and of the highest standard we set ourselves.

INSURANCE & PROBATE VALUATIONS

Michael is able to do both valuations for probate and insurance purposes. A valuation for insurance is charged at 2.5% of the overall value of the items with a minimum charge of £25. This process takes a few days as all items must be cleaned and prepared so that their true value can be ascertained. For probate valuations the charge is 4% with a minimum charge of £25. Again this process will take a few days to be completed. At Michael Lynes we use the Appraiser software guaranteeing detailed professional valuations at reasonable cost.
