Our Full Service Overhaul/Repair
An overhaul consists of a complete
disassembly of the movement. We
ultrasonically clean all moving parts with
specialized cleaning solvents. Then, we re-oil
and adjust the movement.
Next, we polish the casing and bands. Lastly, the watch is re-
assembled and re-timed using state of the art equipment.
Note: All overhauls include new batteries, seals and gaskets.
Thorough testing of accuracy. Your watch is tested to our exacting standards over a period of 72 hours to assure accuracy, water resistance (if applicable), and proper operation of all functionality.
The front part of the watch is usually made of glass or plastic. This is called the watch crystal Watch crystals can break or crack from impact or prehaps dropping the watch on a hard surface. Most crystals are available to replace as original. Nothing detracts more from an elegant timepiece than a damaged or broken crystal. We can help restore the full value and beauty of any watch for a fraction of the cost of a new timepiece. We can select from our stock of hundreds of thousands of the highest quality finished crystals or cut crystals to fit virtually any watch, modern or vintage.
A "quartz conversion" consists of replacing your watch's existing mechanical/electric movement with a moderm electronically regulated quartz movement. We strive to maintain the original appearance of the watch. In most cases our conversions will not alter the face, hands, lens or casing of the watch. The existing set stem will remain functional.
Note: This service is done if applicable - not all watches can be converted.
Stem & Crown
The crown of the watch is the pull pin on the side of the watch that is used to set the time. A stem is attached to the crown of the watch and goes into the movement. If the stem and crown are broken, most can be replaced with original parts to ensure the highest quality repair.
