The Importance of Hand and Marker Alignment

Alignment is key to proper functionality in our bodies and automobiles.  The same goes with watches which, if out of alignment, cannot accurately tell you the time.  Precise alignment of both the hands and markers assures that your piece is accurate at getting you where you need to go on time.  However, even the smallest misalignment can interfere with its accuracy. General wear and tear, improper assembly during a previous repair, and impact are just a few of the ways misalignment of watch hands or markers can occur.  Hands may touch or scrape each other or even appear to not line up with markers at the correct time.  Hour markers may also become detached or fall off.  The approach used by Watch Technicians to realign hands and markers ensures that your timepiece is accurately displaying the time.

Precision Watch Hand and Marker Alignment

This comprehensive procedure begins with an inspection and diagnosis as to at what point the watch hands are misaligned.  By examining the dial’s condition, they are also able to detect any issues with the markers.  Once diagnosed, technicians will proceed with realigning watch hands and markers.  This may involve carefully removing the hands, realigning, and refitting on the watch movement.  In other cases, markers may need to be adjusted individually or reattached at their correct positions on the dial.

Expert Care for Longevity and Precision

Precision is required to complete this process considering that the slightest misalignment can cause inaccuracy in time reading or damage to the hands such as touching each other or the dial.  Before the process is complete, watchmakers carefully inspect the piece and time-test it to be sure all issues have been resolved and full functionality restored. 

All Watch Technicians’ services, experts will educate you on handling and care to prevent future alignment issues to ensure the longevity and optimal performance of your watch.
