A Merry Christmas and a happy New Year

Dear Customers and Readers,

Another year has gone by, and our little workshop is going from strength to strength, thanks to your support and custom. We love what we are doing, and it’s a great pleasure reviving your old watches, and to keep them going.

It’s been a tough year with the Swatch parts boycott kicking in in January, which brings a bit of uncertainty to the whole independent watch sector, but here at WatchGuy, we are quietly confident that the Swiss can’t keep up their unfair practices forever.

But it’s the season of goodwill, and if you celebrate Christmas or not, you will feel some of that festive spirit wherever you are and whatever you are celebrating. We wish all of you and your families a great celebration, with lots of laughs, good food, and maybe the odd watch under the tree.

Even though it appears when you read the press that people in general don’t get along when they come from different backgrounds, here in our workshop, it’s one big family no matter what you believe or where you come from. We have a great relationship with customers from all over the world, and never felt that there is really any difference no matter where you come from. We all cherish our families, and our watch collection 😉

Have a great time with family and friends, and a happy and prosperous 2016, and peace wherever you are.

Christian & Mitka

  1. Hi Christian happy new year

    I’m not a expert on watch movements but apparently parts from the sellita sw200 are 99% compatable with the eta
    Would this be a possible work around?

    • There are lots of different ETA movements, and Sellita doesn’t have clones of all of them. Also, parts aren’t necessarily swappable between Sellita and ETA.

      Best regards,


  2. Seasons greetings to all you watch afficionados, freaks, collectors, lovers or simple enthusiasts!

    I hope everyone will get the chance to spend the holidays surrounded by their loved ones, as well as their family 🙂
