Plastic-Repair is for sale
Plastic-Repair is closing business and everything is for sale, including our Branson Ultrasonic Welding Machine with stock of Gents crystals. I had a great time repairing Swatches and I will surely miss it. But I need the time and I fear the new tax rules that start in three months will mean no package can be sent to Plastic Repair from outside the EU without paying lots of VAT and duties. If you are interested in buying, send me an email. Customers, please do not be worried! All current repairs will be finished and all six Months warranty periods will remain valid.
We were the only company in the world repairing Swatch watches.

You found us!
We are so glad you have found Plastic-Repair! When it comes to repairing your favourite and much loved Swatch watches this is the only place to go. Even Swatch themselves do not offer any repair service. It has taken us much time to master the skills needed to do these kind of repairs. Remember, Swatches were never made to be repaired. In fact they were designed to last at least ten years. In reality they last at least double that so well done Swatch. After that period you go to Plastic-Repair. We'll fix it for you!
Even a rare Swatch like this Kiki Picasso Prototype (1985) wears out after time. Yes, we repair Swatches as rare and valuable as this one! Your precious Swatch is safe with us. We have customers worldwide.
Just have a look around our website. We offer many different repairs, we even offer Swatch parts.
