Watch Servicing
STEP 1. DISASSEMBLY
The bracelet or strap is removed from the case. The case is opened and the movement removed. The case is now disassembled into its component parts.

STEP 2. CLEANING OF THE MOVEMENT
The movement is skilfully dismantled; each individual component is cleaned in specially formulated solution using an ultrasonic machine.

3. REPLACEMENT OF PARTS
A watchmaker inspects each of the cleaned parts. Any parts that require replacing are identified and replaced.

4. REASSEMBLY
Advanced lubricants are used in a precise way and location to ensure friction is minimised and wear prevented. Great care is taken to ensure your watch movement will continue to perform accurately.

5. TIMING AND CALIBRATION
The watchmaker inspects and adjusts the balance and hairspring, which are the heart of a mechanical movement. Electronic testing equipment is used to ensure accuracy. Quartz watches are tested using advanced analysing equipment.

6. REFINISHING
If directed your watch case and bracelet will be refinished. Great care and skill are used to remove any scratches using a series of compounds and polishing mops. Regraining and polishing is undertaken to restore the original finish to the case and bracelet.

7. CASE REASSEMBLY
The refinished case is skilfully reassembled replacing seals to guarantee water resistance.

8. WATER RESISTANCE TESTS
Rigorous testing is undertaken to ensure the watch case meets manufacturer’s specification. We use a three step process: vacuum test, compression test and a condensation test.

9. ROTATION TESTING
The now complete mechanical watch is replaced on an automatic winder which simulates wearing and tests the self winding mechanism. Over a period of days, the accuracy of the watch is recorded and verified against manufacturing specifications.

10. QUALITY CONTROL
The serviced watch is checked for its aesthetic appearance one last time. Only once satisfied, the customer is informed their watch is complete. Rolex and Omega WATCHES receive a 2 year service guarantee, all others a minimum of one year.
