Swiss watches are meant to last a life-time, in order to do that every 3 to 5 years they require a routine overhaul service. Mechanical watches are made up of hundreds of tiny parts, many of which are in constant motion. Because of this, they're subject to wear and tear. But with regular and proper care, your luxury Swiss timepiece will las a life-time. Even if the watch seems to work perfectly, it should be serviced every 3 to 5 years. This is because lubricants that prevent parts-friction and possible damage to fragile inner components break down over time and need replacing. When servicing a mechanical watch, our watchmakers perform a series of checks to make sure your watch returns to you in an optimal condition.

  • Check the case and the bracelet or strap.
  • Detach the bracelet, open the case and remove the stem, crown, seals and movement.
  • Reset the stem and crown and check the winding mechanism.
  • Examine the working of the hands, calendar functions and rotor (if fitted).
  • Inspect and adjust the escapement.
  • Fully disassemble the watch case and inspect the movement and component parts.
  • Replace any worn or damaged parts.
  • Clean all parts in specialist chemical baths using automated cleaning machines.
  • Reassemble the movement, checking and making fine adjustments to maintain a perfect mechanical status.
  • Lubricate the movement if using 4/5 fine oils and greases, and double check the escapement.
  • De-magnetize, regulate and check the timing of the movement to brand standards using specialist Swiss timing equipment.
  • Refit the dial and hands, and clean the case and bracelet using ultrasound technology.
  • Replace case seals where necessary and restore the movement to the case.
  • Double check timekeeping and adjust where required using timing equipment.
  • Using special water resistance machines, we give our certification of the resistance level.
Once we've completed these steps, we test the watch on a wrist simulator for between 24 to 48 hrs. depending on the reserve power of the watch, to ensure the mechanism is working perfectly.

Servicing Quartz

Quartz watches don't have as many moving parts as mechanicals, but they still require routine maintenance. Our expert watchmakers perform the following checks:

  • Check the case and bracelet or strap.
  • Open the case, remove the stem and crown, and check the setting mechanism.
  • Inspect the working of the hands and calendar functions as appropriate.
  • Disassemble the movement and check the mechanical components and electronic module.
  • Replace any worn or malfunctioning mechanical or electronic parts.
  • Carefully clean all the mechanical parts in special chemical baths, using automated cleaning machines.
  • Reassemble the movement, checking it and making fine adjustments in line with brand specifications.
  • Lubricate the setting and calendar mechanisms, using fine oils and greases.
  • Make sure the timing of the movement is in working order, using specialist Swiss electronic testing equipment.
  • Refit the dial and hands, and clean the case and bracelet using ultrasound technology.
  • Renew the case seals where necessary and restore the movement to the case.
  • Check the watch's water-resistance according to brand specification and giving the certification.
This final inspection before we return your watch is critical - it's then guaranteed for 12 or 24 months, depending on the brand.

Servicing Jewelry

Before being listed online or displayed in our showrooms, all our second-hand jewels are thoroughly controlled by our qualified goldsmith. The following inspection are carried on:

  • Dissemble stones and precious stones.
  • Necessary gold or silver welding of broken parts if they exist.
  • According to the material of the jewel we do either gold plating or rhodium plating.
  • Polishing with specific yellow gold, white gold or platinum chalks. Washing and cleaning with ultra-sonic baths.
We will be giving a time & cost estimation after the first inspection done by our professionals on your watch or jewel.
Watch & Jewel Engraving Personalizing your watch or a jewel by engraving a memory on it is always special. We do all kinds of manual and laser letters and designs engraving.
