Robert Reeves Watch Repair

Altro Orchestra perfectly in tune with needs of watch repair workshop

Altro Orchestra

Robert Reeves Watch Repairs, based in St. Austell, Cornwall, has been in business since 1975. In 1995 Robert became an independent Rolex accredited repairer and in 2016 an Omega accredited watch repairer. When the business moved to a new workshop, the tile floor was damaged and uneven.

“I needed a vinyl flooring that could be coved instead of using skirting boards to comply with the workshop requirements of the major manufacturers with whom I have accreditation.”

Robert approached Ben Clarkson from Absolute Flooring to help select and install a floor. Ben contacted Altro for some advice and suggested Robert try new Altro Orchestra.

For areas where comfort and sound reduction are important, Altro Orchestra has been engineered to create the ideal environment to work, learn and live. It offers comfort underfoot making life easier on the feet of students and patients but particularly hard-working staff who spend countless hours on the move.

With a palette of 40 colours and designs varying from calming neutrals reflecting tones of nature, to vibrant shades, Altro Orchestra allows you to design the right atmosphere every time. Robert chose Altro Orchestra in a grey concrete design.

“I require flooring which is plain and with a smoothish surface. Altro Orchestra fits our requirements very well. The mid-grey shade gives an excellent appearance. Sufficient to give some interest, sufficiently plain so that I can find tiny watch movement parts if they fall onto the floor. It looks very smart and is easy to clean and maintain.”

Absolute Flooring skimmed and levelled the floor. The installation was straightforward and completed on time. Ben said “Altro Orchestra was easy to install and the support from Altro was very good as always.”

Robert was delighted with the result.

“The Altro floor ensures my workshop meets the requirements for accreditation with the major manufacturers - a smooth grey surface, coved at the perimeters avoiding dust build up in corners. A product which we hope will prove hard wearing over the years.”
