Regular maintenance can keep a watch in tip-top condition and thereby avoid more costly repairs.”

Steps to Maintaining a Quality Luxury Watch

What are the usual steps to maintaining a fine luxury timepiece and thereby preventing a more expensive watch repair? Cleaning a watch movement generally includes washing the parts to remove any foreign matter, such as lint and dust. These small particles will stop the watch because they will clog the tiny teeth and pinion leaves. Do you jog? Take the subway? Clean your house, or go to the gym? Think of all the dust that accumulates in your house or car; think about how dirty you can get just with a jog through New York’s central park. Some of that fine dust and grime gets in your watch, and over time can damage the mechanism.

Second, oil that has dried and become gummy acts as a further hindrance, so that the mainspring’s power can no longer overcome the resistance offered by the combination of dirt and gummed oil. When this happens, the watch must be dismantled and each part washed, dried, reassembled, and lubricated. Just like a car, a watch needs some oil changes and oil replacement.
