Did you know?
Your mechanical timepiece is more than just a watch. It is a finely tuned precision instrument. In fact, it has many small moving parts within it's movement that keep it ticking accurately for years. With time, these parts begin to wear down and the lubricating oils start to weather away, the seals and gaskets preventing moiture from entering the case will dry up and the watch will begin to lose time.
Manufacturers recommend servicing your watch, much like an automobile, typically every 3-5 years. The servicing will vary from a basic check up to a full overhaul and many stages in between. Often watch brands will perfom this service at a cost to you ranging from hundreds to thousands of dollars. These services can take several months with backlogging and logistics where you are left without your precious timepiece.
At The Watch Collector NY we have been performing this service for clients for years. We employ quality certified and trained watchmakers who can diagnose and repair your timepiece utilizing original manufacturer parts and accessories, often at a fraction of the cost and time frame of the manufacturer's service.
We offer several levels of service to our clients for most luxury brands. Below are some of these services. Please contact us for your specific needs and to receive a quote.
