Scheduled Maintenance

A fine watch will last for generations with routine maintenance, including lubrication and thorough cleaning. 

Watch manufacturers suggest that watches be cleaned, oiled & serviced every three to five years to ensure that the components are properly lubricated and that the mechanism is free from dust, dirt and moisture.

When a mechanical watch begins to function irregularly (gaining time, losing time or stopping) it is a sign that the timepiece needs maintenance and the attention of a professional horologist.

Over time, the lubrication protecting the gears and wheels of a watch will begin to dry. In addition, Water resistant watches have seals and gaskets which will begin to dry and wear, allowing moisture to enter causing the movement to rust and the dial and hands to discolor.

When a Quartz watch stops, it is usually blamed on the battery. However, quartz watches also have wheels, gears, along with electronic components that can need replacing.

There are also many minor repairs that need to be
done, like crystal replacement, crown replacement, pins, dial changes and case /bracelet adjustments.
