Every manufacturer has different servicing requirements, usually between 2 and 5 years. As a watch operates under normal daily usage, moving parts generate friction, causing wear, and that wear needs to be inspected, with any worn components being replaced with brand-manufactured parts.
The expense of a service depends entirely on the level of work required and the type of movement involved. A simple, time only watch may cost as little as £200, whereas a high complication with many hundreds of parts can cost much more due to the additional skill and expertise required.
Every watch receiving a full service is dismantled entirely into its component parts, with each being inspected and cleaned, and replaced if necessary. The reassembled movement is oiled and tested for timing, while the case receives a refinish and thorough clean to get it looking as new again.
The Service Center
It takes dedication to become a manufacturer-certified service centre—every brand has incredibly strict requirements and processes that must be adhered to at all times to produce the level of work demanded. Tools, equipment and machinery must be to manufacturer specification, while training is monitored and assessed, with only the best results making the grade. At Watchfinder, we’re proud to be a manufacturer-certified service centre for a range of exquisite brands, showcasing our dedication to providing only the best watches.
