Brookline’s watch service and maintenance.
To secure the soundness and durability of your timepiece, it is recommended that mechanical watches are serviced about every three to five years, and quartz watches are serviced every 5-7 years, although the timing depends on the kind of watch, and its usage. However, batteries in quartz watches only last a couple of years, so these watches have to be brought in for a routine change of battery. A watch maintenance service in Boston area includes countless operations involving many different skills and requires time. The process and steps includes diagnose, dismantling, cleaning of all parts, case polishing, re-assembly, regulating and accuracy testing and final quality control.
Watches that are considered waterproof, should have their resistance checked annually or every time the watch is disassembled. It is recommended that every seal on the watch is replaced bi-annually.
The ordinary life of a leather watch strap is about eight to fourteen months. Oils, cosmetics, humidity, water, or lengthy exposure to the sun can quicken the deterioration of a strap.
On a daily basis, watches are exposed to electromagnetic fields, and this is becoming more common in our daily lives that ever previously. When the components of the watch made out of steel are magnetized, it could have grave consequences on the precision of the watch. Keep your watch away from strong permanent magnets, which can be found in magnetic locks in purses, in laptops, smartphones, and many other objects.
