Biography

Romain Mautin

I joined Horlogerie du Passage as part of an apprenticeship in the watchmaking trade. For the next two years, I'll be alternating between the workshop in Paris and the watchmaking school in Joué-lès-Tours.

After that, I'd like to do a Brevet des Métiers d'Arts (BMA) to complete my watchmaking career.

I've long been interested in micro-mechanics. In 2022, I had the opportunity to do an internship at "Les Gardiens du Temps" in Le Mans, which confirmed my desire and my choice to become a watchmaker in my own right.

What I love about watchmaking, beyond the aesthetics of the watches, is the complexity and technicality of the movements kept hidden from view behind the dials.

Biography

Millah Gilbert

I joined Horlogerie du Passage after obtaining two watchmaking diplomas in four years at the Paris watchmaking school.

I have done various training courses with craftsmen in France and Belgium. In particular with one of the best workers of France, Mr. Gibernon.

I particularly appreciate the diversity of watchmaking mechanisms, both in their design and in their finishing, whether in pendulum or watchmaking.

My training has allowed me to develop skills in design and decoration, two worlds that come together in the process of restoring a time machine.

Services

We work on all types of watches, except counterfeits or"replicas".

We offer the following services:

Review

revision 1

We carry out revisions on all types of watches, alarm clocks and clocks.

An overhaul includes the complete dismantling of the watch, the cleaning of the watch parts in a machine with different cleaning baths, the reassembly and lubrication according to the manufacturer's recommendations. The movement is tested with a chronocomparator and a first adjustment is made. Then the dial and the hands are repositioned. If requested, the case is lightly polished, the glass is changed (additional costs). Then the watch is tested with the Cyclotest (wear simulator) for a minimum of 5 days. After 24 hours of operation, the watch is fine-tuned.

We also perform a water-resistance test if the watch's characteristics allow it.

A service is recommended on average every 5 to 7 years, depending on how often you wear your watch.

Polishing

lapping 1

To give your watch a beautiful appearance, we can polish the case, the bracelet or the glass (if it is in plexi), in order to remove a maximum of scratches.

Polishing is only possible on steel or gold cases and bracelets.

We can add material (gold and steel) to the case or bracelet of your watch in order to correct defects that are too important to be corrected by a simple polishing

Waterproofing

waterprooftest

We can check the water resistance of your watch up to 10 bar (100 meters). If necessary, we can change the seals of the watch in order to correct a waterproofness defect.

A water-resistance check is necessary for any watch on a regular basis if you want to go in the water.

Battery change

batteryreplacement

We have a wide range of batteries which allows us to change the batteries of the vast majority of watches.

Change of glass

glassreplacement 2

Is your glass cracked, broken or simply scratched? We can replace it if it is made of sapphire or mineral.

For watches with a plexi glass, we usually offer a simple polishing to restore its shine, but we can also replace it.

Bracelet sizing

adjustmentstrap

We intervene on steel or gold bracelets to remove or add links.

We can also drill holes in your leather bracelet if it is too big.

Bracelet restoration

jubilee

We are able to restore Rolex Jubilee and Oyster steel and gold/steel bracelets to correct the stretch caused by the wear of the pins that structure the bracelet. Each pin is replaced and the bracelet is then polished.

We also restore Audemars Royal Oak and Cartier Santos bracelets using a similar process.

3D Design

mode3D

We propose to accompany you on 3D creation projects.

We can design and model from a "design" perspective but also from a technical perspective. We can produce drawings with dimensions and tolerances for industrial production, small or large scale.

Review on Zenith El Primero - automatic chronograph with triple date and moon phase

Biography

Clément Bonnal

I have been immersed in the world of watchmaking since childhood through my uncle and my grandfather, both of whom have been watchmakers in Paris since 1950.

I decided to continue this tradition late in life by joining the GRETA program, which offers professional retraining at the Lycée Diderot in Paris.

I am a vintage watch enthusiast, I am very interested in the evolution of brands and more broadly in watchmaking history.

As a Rolex enthusiast, I like to exchange and bring my advice and expertise.

Polishing and restoring watches are my favorite parts of this job.
