We have been looking after watches with distinction for over 4 decades

Jon Vincent Watchmakers offer the best value in expert servicing and repairs for your Certina watch.


Our state of the art workshop is certified to service and repair the full range of CERTINA watches onsite to a sterling standard. So whether you have a vintage CERTINA chronograph in need of a refurbishment and glass replacement or you need your CERTINA battery replaced and waterproof tested, we are able to carryout all CERTINA repairs onsite.

Finding a reliable watchmaker to repair your CERTINA watch is becoming increasingly difficult as only workshops that have passed CERTINA stringent accreditation process have access to parts. Here at Jon Vincent Watchmakers not only do we look to make it as easy as possible for you to have your CERTINA watch repaired by offering a free secure courier collection, we also look to give the greatest value for money by offering a certified service with quick turnaround times.


How often should you service your CERTINA watch and what happens if you don't?

Your CERTINA watch is a trusty companion that is serving you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Like anything in life, after many years of loyal service it is bound to require some much needed TLC.

There isn't an exact set amount of time for when you should have your CERTINA serviced but the general consensus is between 3-5 years. The reason for this is the lubricants inside the watch have a certain lifespan so if you continue wearing your watch without having it serviced the parts will wear much faster and while it will not cause drastic irreparable damage it will effect how well your watch performs and can lead to an expensive repair bill in the future.

How do I get my CERTINA watch to your workshop?

We would love to welcome you to our Watch boutique and workshop at Horology House, 108 Cadzow Street, Hamilton, ML3 6HP.

Or alternatively we want to bring the experience and personal touch of the local watchmaker to everyone regardless of their destination. Which is why we are the first independent watchmaker to offer a free secure courier collection service for watch repairs. It’s as simple as using our 5 step booking system to get a quote and arrange a time convenient to you to have your watch collected, repaired and returned to you.

It’s that easy.

Would my CERTINA retain the same waterproof depth after being repaired?

Of course. We have the best waterproof tester on the market and provide printed readings after testing.

Are your repairs guaranteed?

As a certified CERTINA service centre all our work is guaranteed by CERTINA as well as our own personal Jon Vincent Watchmakers guarantee.

What is involved in having my CERTINA battery replaced and resealed?

We replace the battery with the highest quality batteries and resealed with the full gasket set replaced (glass, caseback, crown, etc), and we also give the case and bracelet a clean. It will take approx 5 days to complete due to us ordering the complete official set of gaskets from CERTINA to ensure your watch remains in the best condition.
