Q. Will LWC return all old parts removed during an overhaul to me?
A. Yes! LWC will return the parts removed during service back to you packaged separately. These parts belong to you, they should not become the property of your Watchmaker once the service is complete!
Q. I want to buy parts for my Omega watch case or movement, will LWC sell me OMEGA parts?
A. No, LWC has not and never will sell OMEGA parts to either the general public or other Watchmakers. Selling parts is against the policies of OMEGA, however in line with that same policy LWC can supply new 'accessories' such as OMEGA bracelets, buckles and straps. Please note that any strap, bracelet or buckle currently made by OMEGA will also be available through any official OMEGA retailer.
Q. I have an OMEGA watch that I would like to modify, can LWC modify my watch or bracelet?
A. LWC will not modify a customers existing timepiece or bracelet.
Q. I would like to have an OMEGA watch custom built to my specifications, can LWC do this for me?
A. According to OMEGA policies LWC does not build OMEGA watches from parts.
Q. On what brands of watches will LWC perform a service or restoration?
A. LWC will only restore or service OMEGA timepieces.
Q. What brands will LWC refinish cases for?
A. LWC will refinish OMEGA cases, some Audemars Piguet and some Patek Philippe models. Please email if you have another brand of watch and need case work. Please note however, LWC no longer will perform case refinishing on steel Rolex models.
Q. My watch case has been over polished previously, can you build it back up by welding metal back onto the edges of the case?
A. Currently this is not possible with the micro welding equipment that LWC uses.
Q. Can I phone LWC to discuss the work I would like done to my watch?
A. All communication is via email. This is to ensure both parties have a record of the instructions that have been given in regards to the repair or restoration of the watch. This also keeps interruptions to a minimum while working on customers watches, meaning complete attention can be paid to the job at hand.
Q. I have a watch in for service at LWC and would like a progress update.
A. LWC will give a timeframe for the work requested, if this timeframe is to be exceeded due to parts availability or unforeseen issues with the job then you will be notified before the due date. Please do not contact LWC for general progress updates. This takes up valuable time that could otherwise be spent completing work.
