How often should your watch be serviced? The simple answer is around every 5 years if you want to prolong the life of your timepiece and ensure it is always working correctly. A regular maintenance service will involve stripping down the watch, ensuring all parts are working properly, determine if any parts need replacing, ultrasonic cleaning and more.
Avoiding a regular service means that dirt and oil may build up on the watch, causing it to stop telling the time accurately or to stop working all together. When you buy a new car, you take it regularly to the garage to get it checked over – so why wouldn’t you do the same with your watch? Prevention is always better than cure!
