SPECIALIST HOROLOGICAL SERVICE FOR ANTIQUE AND VINTAGE WATCHES, CHRONOGRAPHS AND POCKET WATCHES
MAKER OF FINE HANDCRAFTED MECHANICAL WATCHES
My name is Günter Dähndel and on these pages I would like to introduce my for the repair of antique and vintage wrist watches, chronographs and pocket watches. The workshop is currently situated in York, England.
In my workshop I also manufacture unique and clocks. If you would like to find out more about my hand crafted watches, please click on the Handcrafted Watches link for more information.
I am a professional member of the British Horological Institute and the British Watch and Clockmakers Guild with over 30 years of experience. I have specialised in the repair of complicated horological mechanisms such as chronographs and vintage repeaters. My workshop is equipped with a variety of special machinery and tools, many of which I had to make myself.
Sometimes replacement parts for vintage watches are still available and where this is the case I endeavour to obtain the parts needed, should I not hold them in stock. More than often parts for those watches are obsolete and will have to be hand made in my workshop and finished as required.
Feel free to me about any repair or restoration you might have. It is not possible to give concise repair estimates by phone or email, especiallly with repairs on chronographs and vintage watches, as every job tends to be different and often faults do not reveal themselves until the watch is completely dismantled and closely examined on the workbench.
As a qualified watchmaker and professional member of the British Horological Institute I will do my best to give you advice or point you in the right direction.
All work carried out in my workshop is guaranteed for 12 months.
