Similar to a high-performance sports car, your mechanical watch does require servicing from time to time. Think of it as a tune-up for your timepiece, which ensures accurate time keeping as well as extending your investments lifespan. Cleaning, lubrication and checking of the parts allow your watch to maintain its optimal condition.
Watch Servicing Time-frame
So how often should watch maintenance and servicing take place? The largest factor is how often the watch is worn. If the watch is worn frequently, servicing is recommended every three to five years. If a watch is worn sparingly, servicing can take place less often. It is important to wind and run the watch at least once a month to keep the movement’s parts lubricated. To prevent rusting and ensure oils do not completely dry, a service should take place within 10 years.
