The overhaul / service of a watch movement should take place at regular intervals. If your watch is inaccurate, stops from time to time or if the movement does not run at all, an overhaul (cleaning, oiling and regulating) is urgently required. Over time, the oiling / lubrication of the movement dries out and the sensitive parts of the movement can wear out or even be damaged. This usually results in your watch no longer working correctly and showing poor time keeping (running too fast or too slow). The movement service eliminates the problems that have occurred, prevents possible wear and tear or even damage, and ensures that your watch functions properly again.
A movement service for a watch consists of the following components:
Complete dismantling of the the movement, followed by an inspection of all movement components.
Cleaning and replacing or repairing worn or damaged movement parts of the movement (all additional required movement parts are subject to a fee).
Oiling of the entire movement and subsequent regulation. Control of the watch time keeping for a duration of 72 hours, as well as visual inspection.
We recommend mechanical watches to be cleaned and re-oiled every 2-5 years, depending on how they are worn. Your high-quality wristwatch will therefore be preserved for generations.
