Our mechanical watch service explained
Here at Repairs by post, our expert watchmakers service almost any brand of automatic, chronograph or divers watch to manufactures standards.
- The strap or bracelet of your watch is detached from its case.
- The case then opened, and the movement separated. The case is then entirely disassembled.
- If we are carrying out a certified manufacture service for luxury brands such as Rolex and Omega the case and braclet will be re-finished and polished to remove scratches and blemishes. This is carried out by a professional expert polisher.
- The inner components are first ultrasonically cleaned then lubricated to minimise friction and wear.
- The balance wheel is expertly tested to ensure it’s perfectly precise.
- The strap undergoes specialist watch cleaning and examination for wear and tear.
- Any damaged parts are either refurbished or replaced with genuine or aftermarket equivalent components.
- The mechanism is then assembled and reattached to your watch’s strap with every seal replaced.
- Your timepiece is then finally tested one last time to ensure it’s keeping time accurately and to ensure it’s still watertight.
The faster, less-expensive way to repair any watch. From your home, office or on the go.
