Step 1: DISASSEMBLY
To begin we disconnect the bracelet from the watch case. After opening the case we remove the movement. Finally we completely take apart the case.
Step 2: Cleaning the Movement
After dismantling the movement, specially formulated solutions are used to ultrasonically clean each component.
Step 3: Replacement of Components (if needed)
Watch technicians carefully examine each component closely to identify which movement components need to be replaced. We only use genuine parts from authorised suppliers.
Step 4: Lubrication & Reassembly
Each of the movement’s functional components are carefully lubricated to operate with minimum friction and prevent wear. By doing this Watch Technicians can ensure that your timepiece continues to perform accurately.
Step 5: Timing Calibrations
With a frequency of 690,000 beats per day your timepiece’s balance wheel regulates the movement in the watch’s components. Watch Technicians precisely adjust the balance wheel, then electronically test the wheel’s timing accuracy. Finally over the following couple of days our experts closely observe and verify your watch’s performance.
Step 6: Refinishing the Case & Bracelet (Optional)
Watch Technicians bring the same keen eye for detail to service your timepiece’s case and bracelet as for the movement. After the initial cleaning, the case and bracelet of your watch are closely examined and any worn or damaged components replaced with genuine parts. To restore that beautiful lustre we ultrasonically clean and refinish your case and bracelet.
Step 7: Case Reassembly
With the utmost care Watch Technicians replace all the seals to guarantee the watch is waterproof.
Step 8: Waterproof Tests (Seal)
Rigorous testing is applied to the watch case to make sure it meets pressure resistance requirements. Watch Technicians perform a vacuum test, a compression test and a condensation test. This enables us to ensure that not even the most minute amount of water can breach the case.
Step 9: Final Quality Control
Watch Technicians perform thorough quality tests and checks all through the service process. For the final check we again confirm that your timepiece’s timing accuracy, power reserve and aesthetic appearance are correct and in line with the manufacturer’s specifications and the superb standard of quality one expects from Watch Technicians.
