Revision of Vintage Quartz Watches. Quartz watches are watches powered by a battery or solar cell, in which the timekeeping is regulated by a quartz crystal that vibrates at a certain frequency.
We recommend an overhaul every 3-5 years, depending on the age and service history of the watch, as well as its general condition. If you purchase a vintage watch for which you do not know the service history, we recommend that you have it serviced as soon as possible to ensure its functionality but above all to protect your investment.
We also recommend the replacement of the battery at least every 2 years.
General overhaul including cleaning, disassembly and reassembly, application of grease and oil:
- Cleaning of bracelets, clasp, case, dial, hands, etc.
- Disassembly of the movement, professional cleaning of all parts
- Reassembly of the movement, including oiling according to the manufacturer’s recommendations and guidelines.
- Greasing of rubber seals on stems, pushers and case gaskets with water repellent watchmaker grease.
Additionally and upon request / depending on the current condition of the watch, we offer the following (prices to be determined separately):
- Replacement of the glass (replacement glass available separately)
- Replacement of the case gasket seal (gasket seal sold separately)
- Replacement of the gasket seals on crowns (rubber gasket seal sold separately).
Please note that should spare parts be required, you will be informed of their avalability and cost. Spare parts will be billed separately, and are not part of the present service.
The revision described is intended exclusively for Vintage Quartz Watches. The service itself does not include water resistance testing: vintage watches are generally not water resistant. Many were never water resistant or no longer are. Over the decades, the seals become porous, allowing water to enter the case. Even if all the gaskets are replaced with new ones, the metal surfaces on which they work may be pitted, cracked or uneven. All watches, once designed for use in water, should be tested for water resistance from time to time. A water pressure test can be performed free of charge upon request, but we cannot guarantee that the watch will successfully pass the test even after a complete service.
