What is a Watch Movement Service?
This is a service for automatic watches, which is usually needed every 7-10 years. The service itself is typically conducted by our certified onsite watchmaker where he completely disassembles your watch movement; thoroughly cleans and inspects all the parts; then reassembles the movement and lubricates the jewels and gears with specialized oils and lubricants. After it's reassembled, he then runs a series of test for accuracy and water resistance (if applicable), and finally completes the service by refinishing and polishing the casing (and bracelet) of your watch.
