Watchmakers at Tokyo Watches

We’re offering various services for watches

1. Complete movement overhaul

Naturally, we specialize in Japanese movements, (but offer service for some mainstream Swiss movements as well).

Our advantage is our significant experience with old as well as new Japanese movements some of which were not “trivially” engineered and therefore require particular knowledge and experience, (e.g. the Seiko 52 series).

Further more, our location makes it possible to obtain even rare original spare parts for the older Japanese high end movements such as the High-Beat 36,000 Grand Seiko 614X or the Citizen Leopard High-Beat.

We use a full range of original lubricants from Seiko / Citizen.

A movement overhaul consists of:

  • Complete dismantling to basic components.
  • Thorough cleaning and removal of old lubrication.
  • Careful examination of each and every component.
  • Obtaining spare parts if necessary (charged separately).
  • Lubrication with various lubricants according to application.
  • Reassembly and demagnetization.
  • Timing and adjustments at multiple positions.
  • Gasket replacement.


(Price includes shipping back with courier service and PayPal commissions).

Basic cost for movement overhaul depends on the model:

Grand Seiko 614X, Grand / King Seiko 45 (also 45XX) , King Seiko 52XX (also LM Special), Grand Seiko 564X, King Seiko 562X, King Seiko 44XX.

Citizen (Miyota) high beat movements. (E.g. Citizen Leopard).

Citizen (Miyota) low beat movements. (E.g. Citizen Seven Star).

Spare parts are charged separately.


2. Windshield glass replacement

We replace mineral glasses or acrylic windshields for various watch models.

For some models, we offer replacement of the old mineral glass with a new scratch-resistant sapphire glass (this is actually quite a popular request among customers).

Cost depends on the specific model and material and whether the windshield replacement is part of a complete overhaul or a stand-alone service.


3. Watch case polishing

Our philosophy in this matter is simple. We polish while keeping the original angles of the case untouched. (I personally really dislike a watch case which has become round due to over-polishing).

Cost depends on whether the polishing is part of a complete overhaul or a stand-alone service.
