While it may seem easy and straightforward to execute simple watch repairs such as changing the battery yourself, such repairs are actually much more complex than they might seem. The money you think you might save on a DIY watch repair can be immediately wiped out if you accidentally damage the fragile inner workings of the watch.
A watch movement has up to 500 moving parts. Unless you know what you are doing, it is easy to break or damage any of these parts or throw the entire movement out of alignment. This is especially true with mechanical watches, where the process of reconditioning involves an intricate process of detailing and repairing several small parts. At Jackson Square Fine Jewelers we also maintain a much cleaner environment than almost any home or apartment. It’s kept dust-free to avoid having dust settle into the movement of a watch which is almost impossible to detect but can severely damage a watch over time.
Keep Your Watch Running Smoothly
A watch that isn’t telling time properly is little more than a bracelet. A watch should be a functional timekeeper, not just a piece of jewelry. Though there may be some value in the materials of a luxury watch, it’s a purpose-driven product that’s meant to fulfill an important role in your daily life. Therefore, it’s important that your watch is kept in good running order, by having it repaired when necessary. You may feel like it’s okay to let the watch sit unused in a watch case, but watches are made to remain in motion. After all, a luxury watch is more than just a timepiece that you’ll use in your lifetime. It’s also a potential heirloom that can be handed down to generations of family members. Making repairs when necessary ensure that your cherished watch will be available to be handed down in pristine condition. Keep it running by having an expert watch repair professional make the proper repairs whenever possible.
