How often should I service my watch?
To ensure the longevity of your fine timepiece, the movement should be cleaned approximately every five years. This will vary according to movement caliber, case construction, user habits such as diving and other activities, temperatures etc.
How do I know my watch needs service?
When your watch needs to be serviced you may see a variety of signals. The watch may begin to run a little slow or even a little fast, your automatic movement may not continue to run overnight or the watch may stop all together. It is possible that only one feature of the movement does not function correctly such as your date or chronograph. You may see condensation under the crystal which indicates your seals may be worn and the movement is contaminated.
What happens if I don’t service my watch regularly?
Adequate lubrication is required in order for your watch movement to keep time properly. With the passage of time and normal wear the lubrication will evaporate, become contaminated, or become thick and gummy. Once this occurs it is still possible that your watch will run or can be forced to run by manually winding the watch or continuing to wear the watch in the case of an automatic movement. When the movement is running without lubrication the moving parts will begin to wear and will need to be replaced during the next service creating added expense. If you think your watch needs to be serviced/cleaned but you wish to hold off, it is wise to store your watch until the time is right for you.
