How to properly maintain your watch


Small tips for the proper function of your watch.

If it is a quartz watch, meaning with a battery of up to two (2) years, it needs to be changed without wating for your watch to stop. If you do not do this the battery may leak, the circuit may be damaged and the mechanism may be oxidized, resulting in additional cost for its repair.

If your watch is mechanic, meaning selfwinding or manual, a complete service should be conducted every five to six years depending on its use. Mechanical watches have more parts and are subject to more frictions than quartz watches. Also, the special lubricants that manufacturers use lose throughout the years their lubricant capability and as a consequence your watch loses time and may even stop functioning.

It goes without saying that the service will be performed by a specialized watch maker (horloger) and strictly according to the manufacturer's specifications.
