Every watch, wether it’s new or antique, will need maintenance at regular intervals. Watches rely on extremely small quantities of oil and grease to function properly. With the passage of time, these lubricants degrade slowly until they cause the watch to perform poorly or stop working completely. Worn or broken parts can also cause the watch to malfunction. However, wear and tear sometimes only becomes obvious during repair. Having your watch serviced once every 3-6 years prevent major wear and tear and high repair costs.
