Amazing customer service. I had approached Pierre with my Grand Seiko with an inquiry on an issue it was having with it’s band retention. He not only fixed the issue, but did so for free even though the watch was not purchased from them. All staff were professional and courteous!

    FAQ

    What is a watch movement overhaul?

    A watch movement overhaul is an essential maintenance procedure that ensures your timepiece’s optimal performance and longevity. It involves a thorough inspection, disassembly, cleaning, oiling, and reassembly of the watch’s movement, as well as replacing worn or damaged parts with genuine components. This comprehensive process is crucial to maintain the accuracy and functionality of your watch, as it addresses any potential issues that may arise over time due to wear, dirt, and lubricant deterioration.

    At Precision Watches, our Certified Watch Repair Center in Willow Grove, PA, is fully equipped to perform expert watch movement overhauls for a wide range of timepieces.

    How often should a watch movement overhaul be performed?

    The frequency of watch movement overhauls depends on several factors, such as the watch’s age, brand, model, and usage. As a general guideline, most watch manufacturers recommend servicing a mechanical watch every 3 to 5 years. However, this timeframe can vary depending on the specific timepiece and its unique requirements. Some high-end watches may need more frequent servicing, while others with robust movements only require an overhaul every 7 to 10 years.

    At Precision Watches, we understand the importance of regular watch maintenance to ensure the longevity and performance of your timepiece. Our Certified Watch Repair Center in Willow Grove, PA, offers expert guidance and advice on the ideal servicing intervals for your particular watch. Our team of skilled watchmakers is committed to providing top-quality service tailored to your watch’s needs, ensuring its optimal performance and preservation for years.

    What are the common signs that a watch needs a movement overhaul?

        A watch movement overhaul is crucial for maintaining your timepiece’s performance. Here are the common signs that your watch needs an overhaul:

    • Inaccurate timekeeping: Consistent time gain or loss indicates the need for servicing.
    • Condensation inside the watch: Moisture or fogging under the crystal suggests compromised water resistance.
    • Difficulty winding or setting: Resistance while winding or setting time and date may signal the need for cleaning or lubrication.
    • Strange sounds: Unusual noises like grinding or rattling imply movement or internal components issues.
    • Needs to be addressed: Malfunctioning chronograph, moon phase, or date features indicate the need for servicing.

     At Precision Watches, our Certified Watch Repair Center in Willow Grove, PA, is ready to handle all watch movement overhauls, ensuring optimal performance and longevity for your timepiece.   

     

    How much does a watch overhaul cost?

        The cost of a watch movement overhaul varies depending on several factors, including the brand, age, and complexity of the movement. Here’s a general overview of the costs: 

    • Simple watches: $200 – $300
    • High-end watches: $400 – $1,000 or more
    • Luxury watches: Prices can exceed $1,000 depending on the brand and movement complexity.

     Please note that these are general estimates, and the actual cost of a movement overhaul for your watch may vary.

    How long does it take to complete a watch overhaul?

    The duration of a watch movement overhaul can vary depending on the watch’s complexity and the parts’ availability. Completing a watch movement overhaul takes about 4 to 6 weeks. This time frame includes disassembly, cleaning, lubrication, reassembly, movement calibration, and any necessary part replacements.

    Precision Watches, our Certified Watch Repair Center in Willow Grove, PA, strives to provide timely and efficient service for all your watch movement overhaul needs.
