Peter Hertel Master Watchmaker
German Watch Service in Chiang Mai
I was born on 08 April 1958, the son of a watchmaking family in Bad Langensalza. After school, I completed an apprenticeship as a computer and typewriter mechanic. After graduation, I began my training as a watchmaker and then acquired the championship title. Later, I took over my father's watchmaking company. There I deal with the sale of watches and jewelery and the repair of complicated watches. During my many years of work, I have gained a lot of experience. Some time ago, I relocated from Germany to Thailand and am now working for you in Chiang Mai, more precisely in the Doi Saket district. If you have a valuable watch that needs repair, please contact me. A high-quality mechanical watch would like to be cleaned and repaired by an experienced watchmaker after 5 to 8 years. Her precious, beloved watch is in good hands with me. Also visit my gallery. There I put together some repair reports and pictures.
In this gallery, you'll see a small selection of repair work I've done and documented lately. For a closer look, please click on a selection field.
Panerai Submersible Automatic 300m/1000ft Replica Repair and Service
This replica Panerai Submersible Automatic was brand new at its owner. However, he found that the clockwork did not work properly and the clock stopped after a short time. I never got this type of watch for repair in Germany. Here in Asia these replica watches are of higher quality and not cheap to buy. A repair is definitely possible and makes sense. The Chinese movements that are used here lack quality control. My customer's watch was not damaged in transit, it never worked from the start. After opening the back cover you can see the rotor and the decoration bridge. After these parts have been removed, the actual movement is revealed. The locking spring of the reduction wheel was not correctly attached and was severely deformed by the movement of the rotor. So this spring has been straightened and fixed in its correct position. Now this movement works perfectly.
