On arrival, your watch will go through a diagnostic process to ascertain condition and water resistance, so an accurate estimate can be provided to the customer. Once proceeded, the case will be completely stripped and polished and all necessary case parts exchanged. The movement will be disassembled carefully, ensuring that each part is closely examined for damage or wear. Once ultrasonically cleaned, the movement is reassembled, lubricated and regulated, If we are unable to carry out the repair here due to the lack of availability of specific parts required, we would recommend the best company for you to contact.” Says David.
