Watch Repair & Servicing

Inside a watch is an entire symphony of micro metal parts that work together as well as force and extreme precision that is in play. On average depending upon the type of watch, a balance wheel (An oscillating ticking pendulum wheel that meters the time) cycles on average around 15,000 to 21,000 times an hour. So one could imagine that over the life of a 3 or 5 year old watch the cyclings are in the late billions or even trillions. Parts can wear out due to metal to metal resistance called friction, lubrication can break down, and parts can even become quickly corroded from moisture due to a failed seal. This is why watches come from a manufacturer with a recommended service interval of 3 to 5 years, and a properly equipped and experienced horologist makes all the difference.
