About Sam Arabbetou Jewellers

A reputation built on service and quality, ensures your experience with us is as outstanding as the pieces we work with.

We’ve been helping customers create bespoke jewellery and source luxury watches since 1979. However, for generations the Arabbetou family have been watch makers. We use our knowledge, skills and expertise, passed down through our family, to create the best experience for our customers.

All our services are in-house, either in our boutique shop in Portsmouth or in our workshop in Hatton Garden. We pride ourselves on currently being the only independent jewellers in the South Coast that can service Rolex watches.

Sam Arabbetou – Horologist

“I come from a series of watchmakers and this skill has been passed down through our family for many years. Having grew up in the workshop, I helped my uncle with watch repairing, handing him tools and watching in fascination. I found it so intriguing to see how he brought watches back to life.”

Sam has nearly 40 years experience, alongside qualifications from some of the top horological schools. He specialises in vintage and complicated luxury watches, blending traditional horological methods with contemporary machinery allowing him to repair and restore watches that most other repairers would consider impossible.
