PRECISION WATCH REPAIR BY CHARLIE SQUIRES
BRANDS WE SERVICE:
Servicing of your Watch
Before servicing, your watch receives a detailed inspection by myself, highly skilled, and trained watchmaker who will conduct a thorough diagnostic examination of your watch.
During service, your watch movement is completely disassembled each part carefully examined replaced where necessary with (only original manufacturers parts.) Dried oils are then removed from all parts by as series of ultrasonic cleaning solutions.
Your watch case is carefully disassembled and where necessary a new crown and tube added to ensure that the watch remains completely water-resistant. All gaskets are systematically changed. The case and bracelet are then individually hand polished and refinished to restore their original lustre. After a special cleaning process, your watch case is carefully assembled and we perform the first pressure test.
I will reassemble the movement with painstaking care. Specially formulated oils and lubricants are applied in exactly the right quantities. This operation is very time consuming and requires total concentration.
After reassembly, I will carefully calibrate the balance wheel-the heart of the movement. Now the performance and daily accuracy of the movement are tested in five different positions on a sophisticated timing machine to ensure that they are set to manufacturers standards. Finally, the dial, hands and rotor self-winding mechanism are put in place and the movement is returned to the case. The newly assembled watch now undergoes 5 days and nights of testing including a specially designed wrist motion simulator, which recreates the normal activity of the watch would encounter when worn on your wrist
The watch case is now ready for the final pressure-test in a special vacuum chamber This ensures that the renowned pressure-proof qualities of the case are retained.
The servicing of your watch is not complete until it reaches the last and perhaps most stringent check-point, the experienced eye and insight of myself. Only when it passes this systematic and uncompromising final stage will you watch be returned to you with our assurance that not a single detail has been overlooked.
