About us

Having spent the last few years working in jewellery and encountering more and more difficulty in finding watch repairers willing and capable of servicing and restoring older timepieces, it became the obvious solution to take the bull by the horns. Many traditional watch repairers are now retiring, and those taking their place are generally set up to focus on more modern watches. Being a self-confessed watch nerd, and having had many clients, friends and family make the suggestion to set up for myself over the years, it has only been a matter of time before my dreams came to fruition. 


I spent nearly twenty years in retail, most of which in the jewellery trade, specialising in some of the top Swiss watch brands including Rolex, Omega, Breitling and Longines, as well as sales training with Seiko, Rado, Raymond Weil, Oris and many others. Initially starting as a sales manager, my experience developed to include the repair and restoration of watches and jewellery, as well as sourcing watches and parts from all over the world. Having come from a military family and as a history student the fascination with watches became a passion for vintage watches due to their military importance, social and stylistic development. Whilst training and building mmy own collection and workshop, the inevitable next step was self-employment, which led me to start All in the Balance.


Arthur is my apprentice, born in 2012 he has grown up with the sound of gentle ticking and an understanding of proper timekeeping. Sophie was welcomed into the world early in 2018, and they're the reason behind it all. Arthur has a particular interest in pocket watches and taking them apart, Sophie, at present, just loves the slow tick of a Grandfather clock, and her big brother.
