I have always had a keen interest in watches and clocks and when I decided to pursue my passion as a career I decided to take the proper route and obtain the professional qualifications. I enrolled on a three year BHI Horology course at the Arden Centre, City College Manchester. While studying on this course I also worked as a watch and clock maker to a local retail jewellers. While studying the course I was awarded the BHI Manchester Branch Shield for Best achievement and the BHI Manchester Branch shield for Best Portfolio. I was also awarded the BHI Adrian Gates Bursary and the BHI David Seeley Bursary. On completion of the course I received my BHI Diploma and became a Graduate member of the BHI.

I then attended the refresher course of the Watchmakers Of Switzerland Training and Education Program in Neuchatel, Switzerland. This is a six month advanced course in modern watch repairing for mechanical and electronic Swiss watches. I successfully completed the course and was awarded my WOSTEP Diploma. I have also attended quartz and AutoQuartz specific course's in Switzerland by the Swiss movement manufacture ETA at the ETA Technical Training Centre in Grenchen.
I also completed a two day quartz specific course by the Swiss movement manufacture RONDA and have had the privilege to visit several large manufactures such as Rolex, Cartier, Audemars, Zenith and Jeager LeCoultre in Switzerland.

I returned from Switzerland in late December 1999 and decided to set up my own trade workshop in Oldham, Lanc's. I run and managed this busy workshop, employing three other full time watch & clockmakers for five years.

In 2003 I attained my Rolex accreditation when attended and successfully passed the Rolex Course at Rolex UK, Bexly.

In 2005 I joined the main workshop of The WatchLAB in Preston, Lanc's. I was employed as their Senior Watchmaker which duties included the process, repair and administration of the workload from 10 busy retail branches.

In August 2006 I formed the Limited company "Time Repairs Limited" and formed a close working association with the prestigious Jewellers, Lepps Ltd. I established my my workshop within thier Bury branch and operated as thier in house Rolex accreditted watchmakers for over five years. In January 2012 I relocated Time Repairs to a much bigger purpose built workshop in Chadderton, Oldham. This is where we operate from today with the continued support from a loyal and strong customer base.
