watch repair

The Watch Atelier is one of the leading independent watch servicing centers in the UK. Originally the business was set up in 2015 under the name Xupes Servicing, which rebranded and relocated in 2022 to The Watch Atelier.

The Watch Atelier was set up in 2015 as part of the expansion of the business and specialises in repairing, servicing, and restoring all watches. We aim to deliver the highest quality and the best customer service experiences.

The Watch Atelier is very excited for the next step in its growth plan and eagerly looking for new talent to complement our creative and ambitious team. As a rapidly growing business, job progression is a real opportunity. We also offer lots of perks to help keep you happy and motivated.

You will have the chance to increase your knowledge daily with working on a variety of brands, including vintage pieces. Along with this, we would like to offer training where possible and work to build individual career road paths for progression. Our current accreditations are Cartier, Omega, Panerai, IWC, Hublot, JLC and Longines.

The Servicing department will echo Xupes principles and exacting standards working to offer services to customers and the trade, matching the quality of the manufacturers. Our servicing department will relocate later this year with the long-term view to establish the company as an authorised service centre for chosen brands and grow to become a leader within this industry in the UK.
