Your mechanical timepiece is more than just a watch. It is a finely tuned precision instrument. In fact, it has hundreds of 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 moisture from entering the case will dry up and the watch will begin to lose time.
Most Swiss 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. Watch brands will insist on a an expensive full service with nearly 8 weeks of wait times or more.
