My name is Ernest Varnagiris I am a second generation Swiss trained and certified watchmaker. My watchmaking career began 22 years ago in Lithuania at the age of 18 in my father's workshop.
I worked as an apprentice for about 3 years and then moved on to work as a watchmaker for a local company http://www.sveicarija.eu. This company is an official authorized agent in Lithuania for watch brands such as Breitling, Baume & Mercier, Longines and Tissot.
During my 10 years of working for this company I was officially service certified for Breitling, Omega, Longines, Tissot and ETA movements manufactured in Switzerland.
In 2005 I was offered a technical watchmaker position with Breitling Service Centre UK in Royal Tunbridge Wells. During my two years with Breitling Service Centre UK I received training, both in-house and externally with Breitling in Switzerland.
In 2008 I moved to London to work as a senior watchmaker for Aurum Holdings LTD, the owner of such prestigious stores as Watches of Switzerland, Mappin & Webb and Goldsmiths. In 2010 I moved to the South West of England where I continued to work for Aurum Holdings LTD in Torquay. During my time with Aurum Holdings LTD I received official certification from Cartier UK, Breitling UK(refresher training), Rolex(level 2) UK and Omega UK.
In 2016 I decided to leave Aurum Holding LTD to set up my own watch repair workshop "SWISS WATCH WORKSHOP" in Exeter's beautiful Southernhay.
I am now offering my extensive experience and skills to UK customers from my modern, fully equipped and secure workshop in Exeter a stones throw from the High Street.
Swiss Luxury Watches and watch repairs are not only a job for me, they are also my greatest hobby and passion in life.
