  2.  

  3. Pack your watch securely in padded wrapping materials (for protection against shock) in a sturdy box sealed with tape. For security, please do not use the gift box your watch came in, as it may be damaged in shipping or in handling.

All batteries replaced by us should last at least a year or more. Anything less than that most likely means that your watch may have a circuit or movement problem and servicing will be needed.

Most mechanical watches require servicing every 18 months to 4 years. Other mechanical watches between 3 to 5 years. Quartz watches should be serviced every 2 to 3 years.

 

How long will it take to repair my watch?

 

Most watch battery replacements can be done while you wait. Other minor repairs may take a couple days, and most watch servicing will be completed in 2-3 weeks. We will insure that your repair is prompt and completed with the highest level of standards that you have come to expect from us.

 

Warranty

 

All watches that we service carry a one year warranty on work performed. Parts subject to normal wear such as crystals, straps, etc. are not covered under warranty, neither is damage as a result of abuse. We use Genuine Rolex™, Tag and Omega replacement parts. One exception would be on vintage watches where original parts are no longer available. Warranty void if watch is-misused or abused - opened by someone other than us - water damage
