Quartz Watch Servicing

Quartz Watch Service

If you get your watch battery changed by a professional watchmaker and if the old battery lasted you 3 years and the new battery only lasted you one year that means, your watch needs servicing if we consider both batteries are the same make and quality.

Quartz watches, which are powered by batteries and regulated by vibrations of quartz crystals, do have mechanically moving parts. As the watch ages, the lubricants which make mechanically moving parts such as gear train, calendar function, and setting mechanism work perfectly, start to undergo chemical decomposition. This affects the perfect harmony of the movement which then causes a decline of the accuracy of your timepiece. This is the reason why servicing is necessary.

Servicing of a quartz watch entails:

  • Dismantling: Complete dismantling of the mechanism and cleaning all components in specialist baths
  • Inspecting: Inspecting all components to ensure that they are in impeccable condition
  • Replacing: Replacing any defective parts only with the manufacturers’ original parts, as required
  • Rebuilding and lubricating: Rebuilding and lubrication of the mechanical parts as gear trains, motion works and keyless works
  • Inspection of electronic components: Inspecting the circuit which powers the crystal and the step motor and testing of the timepiece with specialist timing equipment
  • Refitting: Refitting the dial and hands
  • Restoring: Restoring the movement back to the case
  • Testing: Testing the timepiece and making the necessary timekeeping adjustments where required.
